Hello! The substack broke 1000 followers this week. I thank you, and so does the pit bull! Woof!
There still are…not many of you paying for subscriptions though. The pit bull is sad, and looks mournfully at the food bowl. If you like my writing, the best way to ensure the substack keeps thumping along is to become a contributor. You also get subscriber only posts. And my enthusiastic gratitude! So consider it, maybe?
