Well done Jerry!

I hope there will be a proper presentation with glasses of champagne and little things on sticks .....really, Dan, you can't wear a T-Shirt to a presentation...Black tie and tails, more like!

Best wishes,

Peter

Thanks! I hear they're having a gala presentation at the local McDonald's and for one day they're going to be selling Big Jer's.

Good show, old chap; will Ben and Jerry be bringing out a Jerry Raspberrium flavor to sit in the cooler next to the Cherry Garcia?

Volume 2 is in the works, Deirdre. I probably have 70-80 pages done.

And by all means, Kendall, loan the book to your friend.

Mudcat gets a few kudos here, too. I posted several of the stories in my first book on Mudcat under Bus stories, and at the kitchen table. It was the appreciation of Catters that had a lot to do with my deciding to pull together my writings into a book. Elmer Fudd was number one in encouraging me.

I'm posting most of my stories on my blog, now at http://jerryrasmussen.blogspot.com.

That blog "http://jerryrasmussen.blogspot.com" isn't working right now: "Our image backend is experiencing problems which may affect the display and/or uploading of photos. We are working to resolve this and will update this post when we have more information."

Still there's a taster of the book on the Amazon entry.

So should we start calling you Gerry instead of Jerry?

As an aside... I've checked the chat room to find no one there so many times that I've about given up. Is it still considered too controversial to get involved with? If so, that's really too bad. Why can't we just get a lawn?
