Happy New Year - A Little Late

Sorry I've been missing in action again. As I mentioned in late December, I just had a kidney transplant. My hero husband was my donor! (See my December at bottom.) I had a little relapse in January, but I'm doing fine now.

I guess I was anxious to get back in the saddle, after missing most of 2022 because of my kidney failure. I have so much more energy and am rarin' to go!

I hope to start posting regularly, at least twice a week and with some brand new posts. My "dogged" editor, Reggie, will be looking over my shoulder and making sure I keep my promises.

In the meantime, we hope you all have begun the new year in fine health and spirits.

As the great writer, C.S. Lewis, once said: “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” May this year bring you closer to your dreams. See you down the road...
