The -dash- Such a Small Detail; Such Large Consequences

When I came up with the e-mail address re-joyce@mts.net, I meant for the "re" to evoke images of recycling, reusing, repurposing, and even, rejoicing. But never, not ever rejoyce. Nope. Especially not with a @mts.net after it. The idea of producing another joyce or two around the place... I'm totally okay with that. As long as she sews, cooks stuff kids eat, and knows how to spin a dozen or fifty plates simultaneously. But the actual, real-life Joyce behind the one with the mts.net behind it? she doesn't live here. And she's been getting a lot of e-mails asking for bags which she feels that she simply cannot produce.

If you want bags, you may want to re-enter the address that you've got for contacting this Joyce. It's re-joyce with a dash.

And thank you again, dear other Joyce. Thank you for all the re-sending of messages. It is greatly appreciated. Do you sew? Or are you great with the computer? You're already kind of volunteering.... So....

Remember folks, re-joyce@mts.net. Re-joyce with a dash.
