    Haven't been online much the last month or two, because I've been traveling so much this summer. I'm heading out again soon to meet friends for some beach time.

    Thanks for the message. I hope your hyperparathyroidism situation gets sussed out quick and FIXED! That must be such a drag dealing with the symptoms. I'm very sorry that's on your plate.

    Awww thank you Annie! I am well - I hit my goal - so now the hard work of staying there begins!!!!! I have been seeing a new gentleman friend, and I also started back singing with a barbershop chorus that I belonged to years ago - and couldn't keep up with anymore because I was so heavy......so life is good these days. I love your new photo - how are you doing??? Dawn

Today our after church group went somewhere new for breakfast. I thought "hmm, if I'm careful, I can boldy go...." so I ordered 1 scrambled egg, no butter; 1 piece of crispy bacon (meticulously patted free of any grease) and a blue berry crepe. Or I thought it was.

It was blueberry with cream cheese, and for no reason known to human kind, lemon. About 20 minutes into careful slow eating, I started to "gurgle" and gave my husband the cue to leave....

Today has been one of those epiphany days (as opposed to theophany days, which I always enjoy more). In talking with a dear friend I was rather curious as to how she perceives me. Not offended mind you, just always surprised. She describes me as "devout and funny". Not. bad things, just unexpected.
