Dear Friend



Dear Friend,

I want not to like you!

I actively work, and plot not to like you,

but, to no avail.

I like you.

I like you a lot.

    May I join the group? Cruising now. Not much chance to be on the web — expensive.

    Enjoy your cruise Mona…
    What group. I have no group that I know of at this time. I’ll asks a few people if they know of a group? I just post when I feel the need. Thank you for looking and reading, plus commenting.

      A strange blog for me. Our children post for me and this time tuheyposted the wrong photo. I had ready a girl face I painted. No wonder they were laughing. Oh well it served and very valuable lesson or two.

    Oh Mona, there are so many groups on Facebook and Instagram and all of it is weird. I was reprimanded by a friend to take my name off of a group called This Business is mine! I value you and your blog and you as a person in the know. Glad you had a trip and hope you are feeling well.

    What a great picture of you in your workroom/office.

    Since June 30th I am here in Ontario, Canada with my only remaining sibling, Tom and his wife, Hazel. I will return to Los Angeles on July 17th.

    It is the Wimbledon Tennis two week season. All of us are avid tennis fans so it is bliss. I deliberately chose this time span!!!! Another highlight of doing nothing is daily basking in a chaise lounge drinking in the glory of the lush green wonders of nature. Tom and Hazel are creative cooks delighting my taste buds and a respite from institutional cuisine!

    How are you and Skip? Continue to be vigilant in caring for each other.

    Assuring you of my love and prayer, Nuala.
