Hello Vee, thank you very much for your kind words over at my blog. I am physically well now. I think I am over my flu and bronchitis. I have been coming over here and admiring your marvelous woman. She reminds me of Elsa Lanchester in The Bride of Frankenstein. I love that movie. I miss you Vee. It's been pretty hectic and rough over here lately. I have been contemplating closing down, deleting or just plain dropping out of sight. Of course I won't do it because I love several sisterfriends very much and I would not want to upset you all. But just the same, it is very hard to blog with a heavy heart. However, I was a trauma and cardiac care and respiratory ICU nurse and I know how to care for hearts. So hopefully I will have a very good reason to post something soon. Take care Vee. I love you.

Ces said...

I have no doubt, you and Bella will be knocking at my door. Thank you Vee. I will try to explain, although there is not much to explain really. Some things I do with great ease and on some things I am excellent and quite the expert. Some things I totally fail. Unfortunately they are very important things and ones that tug at my heart. Tsup!

Kay Aker said...

Elsa would be proud! I can just hear her hissing with joy right now!
