It's Time for Another Nostalgic Sunday
In keeping with my beloved Andy Griffith Show characters,
 I'm displaying two photos from one of my favorite episodes,
"The Shoplifters," from 1964.
Andy discovered who the shoplifter was,
 (who had all kinds of jewelry and other valuables hidden underneath her coat)
when he accidentally bumped into the sweet little old lady inside the store.

When asked how he knew she was the thief,
Andy replied in his usual folksy manner,
"Little old ladies ought never to clank."


Even though Nostalgic Sundays are one of my favorite posts to write, I just haven't been able to keep up with them on a regular basis. In fact, I haven't been able to keep up with much of anything pertaining to blogging, as I've bemoaned quite a few times lately. SO, after much consideration, I've decided to take a much-needed social media break from blogs, Facebook, and Twitter. (unless I've already committed to hosting a guest here, or being the guest on another blog.)

As I've also said before, I really need to spend a lot more time writing my sequel, plus getting out into the world and doing more promoting and marketing of my memoir, instead of focusing mostly online.

I'm also going to work on my concentration abilities. I'm tired of being so forgetful and disorganized. That's just not who I am, or at least who I used to be, and I refuse to give up and chalk it up to "being too busy" to keep track of things.

My contact information is listed in my profile. I can be reached by e-mail and/or through my website, and I truly hope to hear from you. I'm not sure how long this break will last, but I expect a month or more.

I must leave you with some of my favorite quotes. I hope they inspire you. Every time I read them, it's like reading them again for the first time.
