  • Oh no! I’m back  — full of enthusiasm to write and record my take and memory of things, places, and events in our beautiful and fun area. A misstep back in November put me in the hospital (Alta Vista) and a great rehab center for a few days. I was able to come home (my house has handicap access, fortunately) and twice-weekly physically therapy with experts in the field have me almost back to normal once again. Thank you all for such wonderful care!
