    Hello, Followers, and Non-Followers:
    I will be brief due to me being totally-spent in mind and body. Yep, they say that the mind is first to go, but I just want to say, THANK YOU, for Every Comment, Suggestion, and Follow that I have been blessed with over the past Seven years.
    And with CHRISTmas only days away . . .I am going off the grid, sot to speak, to enjoy a few days with my grandkids and NOT touch my laptop, but maybe to just check what is going on with Facebook.
    I wish Every Follower My Best Wishes for You and Yours to Have the BEST CHRISTmas and Safest New Year possible.
    I mean that with every Sincere bone in my 64-year-old body.
    See  you all later . . .possibly early in 2018.
    God bless you all.
    KENNETH

        "Thank you-- threekeys; sallybea; vocalcoach; chef-dejour;Terrielynn1;Margaret and Tina!
        I Love and Apppreciate YOU all. Yes, this sounds corny, but at my age and
        health conditions .  . .there's not a whole lot that someone or some THING can do to me.
        No brag--just fact!
        Everyone Love Each Other and Strangers because as threekeys said, time is precious and we must savor each moment--and none are promised to have a next day.

        Hi, Kari!
        It's late here, Dec. 15, and I am going to shut down for now.
        This is the first time that CHRISTmas has not sped up on me
        and took my breath away.
        I'm glad.
        And I want you and all of my Followers to Be Blessed
        Beyond Human Reasoning.
        Merry CHRISTmas, Dear Friend, Kari!

      Thanks . . .Titia; RoadMonkey and Dabby!
      Why I put all of your names on ONE block?
      Well, truth is, my doctors put me on a Very
      Strong Painkiller and one of the side affects
      is I fall right to sleep. And if i did that . . .some
      of you would think me mad for not including your
      name in my notice.
      But thank you and love you all.

            Hi Kenneth,
            Make the most of the time with your loved ones, and memories of the ones that can't be here in the flesh, you know they are in spirit.

            Rest your body, mind and spirit, and staying off the computer is a great step toward doing that. I hope you love every moment, my friend.

            Love,
            Jean
