Psst - Wanna Hear a Story?

One of my stories is up at As Time Goes By.

Some of you may recall that I lost a very dear aunt last year. She was just shy of her 99th birthday.

This story is based on one of hers.


  1. I have just come from reading it. I could hear the rattling beads and smelt the smell of the convent as I read!

  2. You write with such ease....

    It is such a personal story yet one can find themselves in such situations whether one is Catholic or not. It is these small moments that can make or break a person. Clearly your aunt found more strength in her, after the bathroom incident....

  3. Congratulations on getting your story up at As Time Goes By, WWW!
    I enjoyed the read. You really captured that particular time and atmosphere. Also, as others at the site commented, the brogue really came through, I could hear it as I read. Nice ending..."Everything comes to those who wait"... an' all that. :-)

  4. I loved reading both the original post and the story based on it. Wow, can you ever write!

  5. A very touching story. And a surprisingly positive ending! How quickly people grovel and fawn when they really need something out of you....

  6. Thank you all very much, I took enormous pleasure in writing it and hearing her wonderful voice!


Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
