    1. Hi Susanne, Nice to see you here. Isn't that the truth about the heat? I've got a free short story out at Amazon through the Free Par-Tay. If you want to download it, you'll find the link at http://freepartay.com. It's called "There's a Dead Elf in Santa's Workshop," and if you're in the mood for a laugh, I think you'll find a few there.
