Subject: It is a rare and wonderful person who can keep a secret >>>>

And it's also a rare and wonderful person who can be friends with a person who keeps secrets. Luke Luke's (that was great, btw!) curiosity is understandable, but I like that he didn't press her too much about it, understood that she wouldn't spill. DD's husband is a psychologist, and DD had to go through a period of adjustment when she realized her husband could not share his work with her.

The description of the bar is great! The glimpses you gave through Luke's eyes, along with Molly's comments about her favorite pieces, made it come alive in my head. I didn't feel at all like I was being told about an interior, but rather like I was being led around the room, allowed to stop and look at things. Super job!

The bit of information about Molly's father was worked in so beautifully, too. It said so much without going too much into it. I like the way you described him as hearing echoes of things past, and when Molly said Viet Nam, it all came together. Anyone who's ever met a Viet Nam vet will get it immediately. Even if they weren't affected with serious PTS, they are still marked with something that's always visible just under the surface, echoes of something only they can hear.

And Lord have mercy, who hasn't know a Pastor Farley? Nuff said. *G*

I really like this bit, and really like Luke, too. I'm so glad you chose this!

Hugs,

I'm glad the description came out well. In what I call research and what others might call procrastination, I've been looking up old gas station signs, digging up memories of bars I remember from being a kid (my dad took me with him once in awhile when he went to a friend's bar or the the Fleet Reserve). I have a very clear picture of it in my head, with wooden bar and mirrored glass liquor cabinet tucked under the stairs to her apartment above.

Oh, there's more to the Pastor than just a dislike of her bar. They have history, those two, and I have to figure out how to get that story told, since she won't tell it herself...

Molly's been telling me about the t-shirts she wears. The one she had on for this scene (of course after I posted it here it came to me) was one that reads "I can do it straight up, on the rocks, or, if you're flexible, with a twist."

I'm also going to have to work in a "Good Golly" someplace, since many of the characters tend to call her Miss Molly.

Where does this crap come from? Seriously? ;-)
