I've always wanted to say this...

Dear Patty (and Mike too),

I've been a fan for a long timeā€¦ In fact, I'd say at least half of my life. (Sorry. That makes me seem young, or you guys seem old, and I don't think either is the case.) You were my substitute English teacher at Prosser High once. And actually, you were the one that gave me that first book. It was a Bookworm copy of Steal the Dragon, which has remained a favorite of mine all this time. I don't remember a thing you covered in class, but I was several chapters in before the bell rang.

Thanks for hooking me, then and now.

And Mike, I don't know if I actually had you in one of my classes, but I do remember a pretty awesome conversation about driving a car into (and along the bottom of) the Columbia River. I enjoy reading your hilarious blog posts.

There was a post you did about art a while back that touched me. You said "I think that art means more to those who don't have a particular talent for it." I wholeheartedly agree. While I don't have a knack for writing stories, I think I'm a darn good reader.

I have a lot of respect for those with the skill to create a fantastic story in a town I know, or bring humor into a sprinkler adventure gone wrong. So, thank you for doing what you do best. You guys keep writing, and I'll keep reading it.

All the best,

Sometimes you have to look reality in the eye - and deny it
