Hi Paul

What a beatuifully thought uot and written story. The details make it so believeable and the reader is anxious to find out what is going to happen. And the end sequence was again believeable. I really enjoyed reading it.

Wow! Keansburg, NJ- Your story brought me there too and since I've also been there, it was extra special fun for me to visit it again in your words. If I remember correctly, from the boardwalk you could see the Manhattan skyline and the...
