    1. Oh, Patsy, thanks for checking on me! Everything is fine! Sorry for the long absence, but first I traveled West to San Francisco, then East to Germany and Austria. Now I am back, and I am so excited to see what all of my friends in the blogosphere have been up to! – andelieya

          1. Thanks A, I loved your last image and showed it to my daughter (via the phone) last night. She was very impressed! I’ll come back to it on the laptop for a better look.

            1. Thank you, Patsy! I feel flattered that you showed my photo to your daughter. I think my daughter would love just about all of your blog posts, too, but she lives on the other side of the country and it’s hard to share a lot of things with her.
