To all – I’m sorry it’s taken me more than a week to respond to the comments you left on LAST Sunday’s ‘mutterings’ … but I’ve enjoyed revisiting mine (along with my poetic musings about the start of the Olympics) and re-reading YOUR comments too. A special thanks to Kitten, Joyce, Tammy, Lisa, Karen, and Sandy for ‘muttering along’ with me. It’s great fun to see how differently everyone thinks when reacting to these weekly words. I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend … and I’ll try to be more prompt with my responses in the coming week … even though I’ll be caught up in the Olympics as I’ve been this past week.
Hugs and blessings,
