Blog Break



Dear friends,

With much reluctance, I must take a blog break.  Several years ago I had spinal surgery in my neck (a titanium plate and screws)  which has been giving me a lot of problems.   I need to take some time off to concentrate on my health,  general life matters, and  maybe even a vacation.

I  care dearly for all my blogging friends and will miss you; but will be back soon along with Potpourri Friday.   I  look forward to my return and hope that you will miss me just a teensy bit while I’m away.

Take care!
                                                                  Until next time, Honey
