I just had my first phone conversation of 2022 — and wrote 2022 and not 2021!

Adrienne Beaumont lives in Australia and is 15 hours ahead of me — time-wise. She wanted to hear my sweet voice to start her year off on a cheerful note.

I made that up — she just read a Christmas story she said was the best she has read.

I’m thinking she must not have read mine! The story impressed her so much she wanted me to read it.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
