  1. Mary, congratulations on making the ECPA Bestseller list!!!! Go you!!!!!

    And wishing everyone a happy and peaceful and healthy stay-at-home Corona-Staycation!

    We'll stay Together/Apart and beat this thing yet!

    We defeated Tuberculosis, polio, scabies, scurvy, malaria, and so many other diseases.... we'll get Covid 19 on the run yet!

  2. Happy Saturday, everyone!

    I like the way Ruthy is calling our current situation a "staycation!" That sounds so much better.

    I'm spending the morning working on my WIP, then I'm looking forward to an afternoon with my feet up watching an episode of Midsomer Murders...between taking the puppies out. And in. And out.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi Everyone! I'm working on my Spring 2021 story. Spent the morning working around the house. Have a wonderful day. I'm praying for you!
