  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.

    • 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?
