long time no see. Been so busy since I got back from Texas that I am convinced I'll meet myself in the doorway one of these days. *groan* Marrying off my daughter soon, (whoohoo LOL) and finishing my eight novel and dealing with family and dogs and sick mother and mother-in-law...it just never ends. But such is life, and you just carry on, don't you - one step at a time.
I'm sorry it took me so long to respond...and now I see that even Pol shows life signs. Imagine that!
So, perhaps all is not lost with the previously dormant message board.
