Revising the latest MG, BASKETBALL BALLERINA. Working hard to find a great ending. Death or no death? Cancer survivor or cancer victim? In MG usually a more happy ending as oppose to sadness, not sure how I am going to go. Maybe will write it both ways and decide the best outcome.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Unusually cool in the evening in the deep south. Constant breeze causing folks to wear jackets at softball and baseball games. GEAUX TIGERS!!!
