It’s been an interesting few days for me. We had our annual LOL Day. I wasn’t here for all of it, but I got around some and was so pleased to hear from so many. Then I particularly enjoyed Ana’s Fantasy Friday story about Kat, Natalie and Cassie meeting. And then Ana was kind enough to invite me for Fika yesterday. I feel like it’s been a full weekend and then some.
Yesterday in answering some author question I posted pictures of my view of Cassie and Tom. The picture of Cassie is right on in my mind, but where I’ve always been able to see Tom in my mind, I haven’t found the perfect picture for him.
I can, however, tell you why Richard Crenna is so close. Do any of you remember the TV show ‘Judging Amy’? It was a show that Mollie and I enjoyed watching together. Mollie was always interested in the story line involving Amy and her daughter where I was only interested in Maxine, Amy’s mother’s story line.
In one of the last few seasons Maxine fall in love with a beautiful man played by Richard Crenna. It was a love story I followed with passion. I really, really wanted them to work out. I was getting my way, he proposed, Maxine accepted and the wedding was planned. Then Richard Crenna died in real life. I was crushed, and as they had to write his unexpected death into the series I watched in tears. His character’s name was Jared Duff. And Cassie and Tom’s last name is to honor him.
If you want more of Cassie stories, you’ll be happy. She usually tap me gently on the shoulder when she want’s me to type up something for her, lately she is standing right in front of me, hands on her hips, tapping her foot at me! I get it all ready and I’m typing as fast as I can! There is a new story at Cassie’s Space today as Tom finds out about the meeting with Kat and Natalie. I’ll let her tell you the whole thing, but expect a few cliff hangers.
