To our faithful readers

Recently, we had some nice comments posted on our "Margie and Edna remember VJ Day" blog entry. While we're very glad you enjoyed the sisters' "memories" of that day, we felt like we needed to correct some misconceptions. Margie and Edna are not real people, and what we wrote are not real memories. By and large, the posts on this blog are works of fiction, and are meant to be enjoyed primarily for their entertainment value. Neither of the authors of this blog are octogenarians--not even close! Nor are we real-life sisters. Now, this is not to say that there might not be a kernel of truth in some of these posts; we often take from our real-life experiences, or from those of our parents and/or grandparents.

We are delighted and flattered that these caricatures ring so true for some of you. We've been told that the ladies' interactions often remind people of their own relatives, and we're happy that they strike a chord among our readers. We enjoy so much presenting these ladies to you, our regular readers, and we hope that you continue to visit here to see what the ladies are up to. We promise you, they have many more adventures to tell you about!

Sincerely,

Jane and Beth, aka "Margie" and "Edna"

Isn't it great when people believe your characters are real? I've had that from time to time; I can't think of higher praise.

Margie and Edna said...

Beth/Edna: glor!e and susan, thank you for your comments! It is high praise indeed, I agree susan. Jane and I are both so glad that everyone stops by here to see what the ladies are up to. :)

And Jane, I am equally in debt to you for your writing skills and humor. Edna is nothing without Margie, and I thank you. :)

Sassy Mama Bear said...

You do a great job with these characters when you can fool readers you know you write superb, so when do we get the book????

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Margie and Edna said...

Margie/Jane,
I see we have more wonderful visitors today. Thank you all for dropping by.
Mike, now you know. We love to joke.
Sassy mama, you are so kind. Have you been eavesdropping? We actually have talked about doing a book sometime in the future.
Amy, you are kind to applaud us. You are right of course;we are sassy & proud of it.

You all come back now when you can stay longer.

I personally refuse to believe Aunt Biddy isn't real...I don't know who you are but I guarantee that Margie & Edna will be none too happy about you young whippersnappers playing on their blog!
