I hope you enjoy my contribution to Julia's 100 Word challenge for grownups this week. It is an excerpt from my novel in progress. I exceeded the 100 word limit by 11 words, my apologies. If you would like to join in the fun the link is below. Thanks for taking the time to read my piece and leaving a comment. Jean
