Very sorry for you loss, deB. It never is easy, no matter how old we (or they) are.

I really am working on a book. This has been a hard year — many medical problems and a lot of pain. (Just last week I discovered I do not have colon cancer, nor bladder cancer; working on how to cure the sciatica that bedevils me, but since it is not life-threatening, I am content.)

I used to teach jewelry to kids, 9 to 15 years old, and I learned to admire the mental ability of 8, 9, and 10-year-olds. I decided they have all the intelligence ever — without most of the distractions (hormones, especially); so, yes, I would write a book of use to them.

I do empathize. Our close friends who were transferred to Minneapolis used to call it Minni-No-Place. On the other hand, then they were sent to Atlanta, and they cannot even figure out what to call that! <g>

Very nice to see you here. Let’s see if we can engage your young friend.
