More from Debbie:



"Mark your calendars and join us for a Jazz Fest pre-party to celebrate the release of my new, first and long awaited solo record. Alex McMurray, Tom McDermott and Matt Perrine will be joining me and some special guests to perform some songs from the record and whatever else strikes us as a good idea. Copies of the CD will be available for one night only for the reduced price of $10 with no limit on how many you can buy. Stock up before the Fest and do some early Christmas shopping because they'll never be this cheap again." - Debbie

Ted yelled, “Passive aggressive,” but nobody heard. He adjusted his belt, then fogged the camera lens with his breath and wiped it.
When Sunny had finished with the prop cubes, she turned off the vacuum cleaner.
“Freakin’ fertility drugs,” he called out too soon, proving he had been saving it until the din subsided.
“She sounded so happy on the phone that we could take their picture.” Sunny pulled down the snowy pastoral scene backdrop. “She said sh…
