Yet – The Little Word That Could (Choo! Choo!)

I’ve had a love affair with words since I was old enough to read. Like Alice in Wonderland who falls down the rabbit hole. Lost in the characters and lost in time.   I read “Gone With the Wind” when I was 13 and expected to see Rhett Butler, hat in hand with that killer…
