Touchstone’s Thanks page

I appreciate all the help with the Cornish dialect. I’d like to say thanks in the book to:Annie, Carlina, Corgimom, Dave, Kerry, and Phil the Badger for their help with the Cornish tongue.

That okay with you guys? Let me know if you’d rather I use another name for you.

    Wowee! Yes, more than okay with me. Do use Corgimom, not because I’m in hiding but because it is an identity that is likely to be connected to the very specific time in my son’s life from birth to kindergarten. I think it will be fun to have one more touchstone for remembering what was going on in these wonderful years.

    I am immensely flattered. Thank you

    Meur ras (I looked it up). I’m real chuffed about getting a mention – I don’t think I deserve it, but bow to your authorial judgement (!)
    And do watch Blue Juice – much more of a laugh than Straw Dogs, or Rebecca.

    And to Corgimom – I’m glad you are cherishing your son’s wonderful years.

    What an honor! It will make the book even more special — not just the mention, but the mention in the context of these other cool people. As Corgimom will use it as a touchstone for her son, I will use it as a way to remember the time I spent with this great community. Thank you most sincerely.

    Aww shucks, what an honor indeed! No objections from me and I am flattered you would do such! I’m glad it helped in some form. Thanks so much!
