Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year from across the waves of the Atlantic !

To all members of this wonderful site, I thank you for this past year of fun and frivolity, encouragement and understanding, you are a marvelous group of people.

The fun of Porch Parties and the competition of Strickly Come Blogging showed us how truly therapeutic these imaginings can be!

To me, it was just so awesome, that a group of people could come together, sit on someones porch, enjoy coffee, tea and whatever else some members could think of, enjoy all the goodies we all brought to the "serving table" and carry on hilarious conversation, reaching across the Atlantic Ocean..all by sharing imagination!! That was memorable.

The subsequent Pub hopping has been hilarious, all along the same ideas.

Even with all the comics in the group, we can maintaine the understanding and compassion needed by each of us and all the new additions to our family.

It is so pleasing to have you all accepting me as one of your own from this side of the pond. I love you all, and wish you all the best for a New Year of Less Pain, more Mobility!
