Dear Readers,

As always, read on below for the next installment of “Waterproof and Green.” I’ve had some interesting feedback from readers on this one, including from a close friend of mine, who said that she didn’t like the main character, preferred never to think about him or his life again, but that of course she loved the story.

That’s a true friend.

To help decide whether to keep posting (there are 3 more installments after this one) or to switch to something a bit more cheerful (hey, what’s not cheerful about soup kitchens, homeless people and drugs?) I’d be delighted if you’d leave a quick click (or 3) on the poll at the end of this week’s installment. Thank you, my dedicated readers, and have a wonderful Monday,

No one will ever mistake it for a butterfly. Continue to this week’s installment…
