So earlier this morning, I received this comment from Carol in Perth, Australia. Since I probably don't have any readers on Mars, it's safe to say Carol gets the distinction of my most distant reader.
Dear Linda,Oh, Carol, thank you for the kind words about Bastard Husband. I really am proud of how it came out. And, um, sorry about the sunburn.
After finally getting back from holidays, I have a bone to pick with you. Basically you owe me a bottle of after sun care.
I purchased your book and decided to save it to read whilst I was away. So, there I am sunning myself near the pool in Honolulu where I get third degree burns.How do I hear you ask, did I get so burnt? basically once I started your book, I literally couldn't put it down. I had to read it. I totally lost myself in your book. I haven't laughed or cried as much over a book, like I did with yours.
PS Whatever happened to Perry?
Perth WA :)
So.... whatever happened to Perry? I'm asked that a lot.
Perry and I went out on an official date only once, on my 47th birthday in 2004, and then soon after he took a job in the Bahamas, where he lived for several years. This was taken at the Hard Rock in November 2004 after a John Fogerty show at The Joint. (My arm is not that fat in real life.)
The last I heard from Perry, he had moved to Houston. I sent him a Happy Birthday email a couple of weeks ago, but haven't heard back so I don't know the latest.
What a cool guy--so nice and funny, too. He'll always have the Jesus halo I mention in the last chapter of my book!
