The elderly women were already on the bus when the young man climbed on. The minute he sat down they started talking--in Icelandic.
"He's so handsome," said one of the women.
"Yes," the other agreed. "I wonder if he's married."
Her friend nudged her arm. "Oh, go on. You're much too old."
"Not for me--for my granddaughter. But if I were forty years younger."
They shared a giggle.
The subject of their attention pulled the cord requesting the bus driver to stop. The young man offered them a smile as he passed their bench. "Have a good day, ladies," he said--in Icelandic.

You: It's summer's end, Leanne. How did you do with your spring and summer projects?
truth be told, I was still working on the last manuscript as summer fell into autumn.
An entire summer's worth of work...
9 picture books for children
4 short novels for adults
4 short story collections for adults
fit into one plastic folder. This folder will be given--along with my appreciation--to my beta reader.
Oh, yes and my spring project of sorting through my computer files...? That's a never-ending challenge. I'm currently on 'P'. Hopefully, I'll reach 'Z' before my computer dies. Wish me luck.
