Avril, Nadia, Doug, Tammy, Carolyn, Becky, Tiia, Colette, and Bobby, I appreciate your kind and encouraging comments ~ thank you!
Bobby ~ everything's fine. I've just been taking some "time outs" for holiday activities (i.e., writing Christmas cards, decorating). #10460139

What a great title, Mary!! A very colourful image that is just about jumping off the page to us!!

Thanks for the well wishes for Carolyn. She read your comment on my latest posting and she would like me to thank you. She finds it very difficult to post images as only having one hand available along with a back injury that limits the time she can sit at the computer makes it hard.

Thanks for your kind and supportive comments, Phil, Kiki, and Emile.
Phil, I'm still praying for a speedy recovery in the Connolly household. No doubt many others are, too!
Kiki ~ this is that "busy month", where Real Life takes priority over photos. Guess I'm not a multi-tasker!!
