A happy surprise indeed!
(My good friends AFKAPW and Lots Of, I expected: they are extremely good-natured and curious people. )
And indeed, words fail me when I think of this. For as one who was isolated as in times past as I, now: now, I can meet and speak with you at any given moment; and I do so love to hear and know what you have to say. I feel as if I am a kid again, and they just opened up the proverbial candy store.
I'm pleased and honored to be given this by Swampwitch:
Dear Swampy, thank you. Frida would have painted you, that's for sure.
And dear reader, thanks for visiting. I'm glad to see you, whenever you stop by!
Come back soon. I can't wait to see you.
