    Georgia, This is John’s sister-in-law, Margo Perry. I just read your short story in Cup of Christmas, about Christmas in Rich’s department store, and your descriptions were wonderful – they reminded me of shopping at Marshall Field’s in Chicago at Christmas time. And I agree with you about the travesty of the Macy’s take over. Such good traditions have been lost.
    As I read the story, it was when the student referred to your mother as “Mrs Lee” and It registered that the child’s name was Georgia, that I realized the name was “Georgia Lee”. Went back to the beginning of the story which I am reading on Amazon Cloud on my iPad and saw that the author’s name is Georgia Lee. Got to your web page, and there is the picture of Savannah! No mistaking that lovely young niece of mine.
    You are a gifted writer. Thank you for adding this story to the collection of Christmas readings for me and so many others.
    Happy New Year!

    • Margo! What a pleasant surprise to see your comment. I can’t believe you saw this and were reading along and discovered my true identity.
      Thank you so much for your comments. I know Marshall Field was like Rich’s, I’ve heard so many great stories about it.
      I trust that you, Elisabeth and Allison and Christopher had a great holiday. Savannah enjoyed her trips to Wyoming and had such stories!
      I’ll write soon, as I believe Sav. has your address.
      Happy New Year,
      Georgia
