  9. Thanks, Pat! I agree! But, hey....you can't win if you don't try, right?!

  10. Hi, I was hoping I would make it in time, but, shoot, I missed it again. It is two years now before the next one, right?? Looking forward to looking over your blog. Just started writing myself at 50+. Donna


I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
