See You Soon

Hello, friends. I will be out of the blogosphere for a bit, and hope to be back around New Year's or perhaps a little before. In the meantime, I was asked to submit a post at Retirement and Good Living (both of which I enjoy!). It would mean so much if you could go and leave a comment on it. You can find it HERE.

And if I don't see you before, let me wish you a blessed, merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season! Stay warm, too!

  5. I left a comment on the site, Shelly. It did not immediately appear and I hope it wasn't lost. Meantime, I want to thank you for letting us know you'll be taking a break from blogging, a timely and considerate decision on your part in light of Sush's latest post. Needless to say I will miss your blog stories and your comments. Please take good care of yourself in the weeks ahead. I wish you and your family a joyous Christmas, dear friend!

    1. I tried a second time to post a comment and so far there's nothing. This same thing happened recently on a site where Bouncin' Barb was published. I hope one or both of my comments show up eventually, Shelly.

  27. I'm hoping that everything is well with you and your family Shelly. Make sure you do return, because you won't like it if I have to come and find you, to bring you back in the blogging community.
