Hello to all our followers. As an added Valentine treat, I will share a paragraph from one of the tales
included in the short story anthology Tall Tales and Short Stories from South Jersey.
Oh, that smile. I first saw it in the summer of 1950, as he stood at the bottom of the steps of City Hall with my cousin, Henry. They were about to board the warship bound for Korea and wanted to enjoy their last night in the city by going out dancing. James was short and stocky then, with a strong sharp chin thta jutted over the collar of his white uniform. He wore his jet-black hair slicked back, and liked to smooth it with his hands and a fine-toothed comb. He impressed me with his jolly sense of humor and fancy dancing feet.
This excerpt is from the story The Walk by Mieke Zamora-Mackay
