  1. So luck of the Irish- I logged into my dead FB account to get an email address & saw you have revived your blog. So very glad to read your new work & see (your photo with the lad) you doing well. We need a catch up of sorts soon..I think my email addy shows for you so drop me a note sometime.
    Waving to you from stateside

    • Hi Lynne. Long time no speak. Glad you dropped in. That is good luck because that was the first FB post I’d made since January. Yes, the blog revival is fully underway. I don’t remember where your emails are. I got rid of one addy. Are you still in the Tampa area?

  2. Hi Michael
    Thank you for your wonderland storytelling, your descriptions are breathtaking.
    The invitation to Norway still stands.

    • Hi Julie. I was wondering if I’d hear from you again. Thanks for coming by. I am definitely still interested in coming to Norway. Here’s my email address: mppowers61 AT gmail.com. Send me an email so we can stay in touch that way.
