Parks College Journal Mystery Continues.....

Yesterday, after much talking (in person with people at Parks) and reading and searching (both at Parks and online last night)...The short version is this:  It doesn't appear as if the young man ever attended Parks, but I did find a book for sale, online, written by someone with the same name, and it was about......aero mechanics!

♪♫ Hit the Twilight Zone music, please! ♪♫

I'll post more information as soon as I get some. I am so captivated with this, I can't get it out of my mind. Maybe I should be a mystery writer. Not!
                                                       ~~~~~~       ~~~~~     ~~~~~~

Oh, and I even wrote over 400 words last night for a new Call for Submissions at Chicken Soup for the Soul. I have many other Writing Opportunities to promote, and I'll do that soon.


*And welcome to my newest follower, inluvwithwords, I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see. Thank you!*

  1. Hi Becky! I love that remark - about just typing faster!! Hee Hee! Good luck with your Chicken Soup for the Soul submission. Sorry I'm late in replying to the question you asked in an e-mail, but my mum wasn't actually called Violet. Her favourite flower was the violet. But is is a very pretty name. My granddaughter is called Ruby Violet. Hugs to you my friend. Oh! I have a new e-mail address, which is dianegodwell@sky.com

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
