H LeAnn, I think I may have figured out how to be a follower - it's not as evident without a blogger account, but I have you bookmarked in favorites so I was following in my own antiquated fashion!
Hope your summer is wonderful.~Susan

LeAnn! How can you torment us so! I've had my fingers and toes ready to uncross at noon, and now I must make it until midnight! I can't find this book anywhere, it's killing me. Deep sigh.

Susan: Glad you figured it out -welcome! :). Hope you are enjoying a beautiful summer there. California thinks it is still June--gloomy mornings --here at the beach anyway. Be well. xo ~LeAnn
