A belated thank you, everyone, for your friendly and supportive comments. I do appreciate them.
Sometimes Life throws you a curve ball. For me, it was pneumonia and a hospital stay for the second half of June. I'm grateful to be home finally, but I still have quite a ways to go before "all better" is the new norm. Thank you all for your support. #11328509

Kiki, "all better" is still a dream --- and a goal. I make it to the site about every other day (if that) for now, so imagine my surprise when I learned after midnight that this is a Finalist.
