** Happy December 1st **

Where has this year gone? Isn't that what we've been saying every December for quite a few years?

I haven't posted for a week, which is really unusual for me......Just been busy enjoying the "Thanksgiving Season"! The days of baking in preparation for our family dinner the Saturday before....The day of friends and fun on the actual Thanksgiving at a dear friend's home....My very first shopping adventure on the day after Thanksgiving.....and visiting my wonderful friend who I sometimes lovingly refer to as "Crazy Rita"!

Three weeks ago, Crazy Rita had open heart surgery and came through with flying colors!! When Sherry and I visited her last Friday, we were amazed and thrilled to see her looking so good....looking and acting like her old "crazy" self....looking and acting as if nothing had changed....But, knowing her the way I do, I'm sure that "something" has changed. I can't imagine what, though, because she had already been such a funny, optimistic, faith-filled woman, even in the middle of career issues, family concerns, etc. That will surely help her, too, as she goes through her physical therapy.

I'm so looking forward to taking her to lunch one day soon. I can't wait to hear what funny, crazy things she has to say!
