The Barcalounger Cowboys of St. Columcille's met for the first time over a decade ago. When we started, we were all teachers...not so anymore. When we started, some of us were married and some of us were single; while that is still the same, it is now in a different combination (although, to clarify, we have not married each other). When we started, there was simply one child among us...now there are eight, perhaps nine or ten, if the rumors are right. And what do we write for? We write for ourselves, we write for each other, we write to receive the occasional rejection letter, we write to connect in the world. And we laugh...a lot.
