Well, congratulations and many thanks to the above “commenters” for hanging in there with us down the bayou in 2013 and being so chatty!
There are lots of other things we could talk about in review, however, without going into detail, one of our family members is in the hospital, where I’m headed now. Please offer prayers for a quick resolution to these health issues for my precious daughter-in-law, and I will be forever in your debt.
It’s New Year’s Eve, and I hope you all usher out the old and ring in the new in good health and happiness.
Thank you all a million times for visiting with us here, and I look forward to a fabulous 2014 and many more entertaining exchanges!
