I don't really know who reads sinnersbleeders regularly. Jon, Forrest, Dave, Joel, Leif, and I can think of a few others maybe.

Whoever you are, I'm glad you're here. I get a kick out of doing this. And, in the cases of Jon and Forrest, it has become an important aspect of a friendship.

I've been thinking of setting up a blog devoted to my Hafford entries. What do you think?

Also, give me a good full name (first, middle, last) for a woman in her eighties who lives in Hafford, Saskatchewan. I'll pick one of your suggested names, and I'll check to see if a name similar to the one you suggest is in the Hafford listing of the Sasktel phone book for the Battlefords region ; if it is, I'll call her up to see if she wouldn't mind being written about (whether she's sixty or 16, she'll still be the basis of the character), and then I'll interview her a bit and work her into the story. That's how I've been doing it so far. It has led to some of the strangest telephone calls of my life.

It feels sort of intimidating to submit a name for this project. I will get back to you.

Matt, I can't believe you never told me about this.
