"Wail, now, Ah'm a writer from Dallus (y'know, like the tel-lee-vision
show)"

Thet means I go out to thu barn ever' morn'n an' saddle mah horse and check
out all mah oil wells - oil bidness, y'know) afore goin' back to mah state
of the art computer (bought with money from mah oil bidness, y'know) to type
out deathless prose....

Jo
Who can use both hands and probably have fingers left over to count the
number of times she's ridden on a horse 'cuz she's a city girl....

Oooooh! I wanna play!

"I'm a writer living in South Dakota."

That means that I'm a large, potato-dumpling-shaped woman with a pale
complexion that's been reddened and roughened by harsh winter winds. I split
my time between carefully copying my final drafts into tablets of thin paper
that's always tearing from the pressure of my knife-sharpened pencil, and
anxiously scanning the horizon for signs of prairie fires or indians.

Patty
