End of Six Month Hiatus

November 3, 2013

“HIATUS”

    Wow! Enjoyed this update. I have been checking the site periodically and although I enjoyed looking at the beautiful tree in front of your house, I am grateful to see this new update that I can look at again and again. Lots of stuff to see. Thanks for sharing it all with us. /ner

    • LOL, Nancy. It was crazy busy preparing for retirement and I just couldn’t blog. Now that things are settling down and I am getting into my MPL Photography mode, I’m going to be blogging more regularly. Glad you enjoyed the 6 month overview.
