Hi Leslie. It's been a while since we were in touch so I thought I'd drop by and say "Hi!" Seems from what I read above that you're struggling a bit to get around and away as you would wish, but it's good to see you're still virtually active here on VT :-)

    Hello Sarah! So nice of you to stop by and say hi. It is always good to hear from my VT friends. You are correct about the struggle to manage my health and get around. I have been "grounded". I am heartsick about not returning to France this spring for the long stay in Provence that was so greatly anticipated. Reading about the travels of others smarts a bit at present but I am slowly getting back to reading more on this wonderful site. Adjustments are taking time but I am working on them--being grateful for what I still have does help. One thing I have learned and would like to shout from the roof tops is that people should use every opportunity to travel while they still have their health. "Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got til it's gone..." J.M. (Outside the context of the song but it does come to mind!) Thank you for getting in touch with your kind message! Much appreciated. :-)

    That is so true, and another VT friend, AnnS, said the same thing recently. Joni, as so often, hits the mark :-)

Hi Leslie, you might remember commenting on my Eu page a while back - I see you made it to France! Congrats, and I hope you liked it as much as I did.

    Hello! Thank you for the friend request. It is my honor to accept. I do remember your Eu, France page. You getting in touch prompts me to get back to reading about your travels. :-)

Leslie, Just passing by to say hi and hoping you are well and enjoying garden etc - I imagine you will be getting busy in it soon if you are not at it already. I imagine you will treat us to some nice photos from it over the summer.

    Hi Albert. Nice of you to stop by. Not so sure about the garden this year due to health issues. Very frustrating. But thanks for the good thoughts! :-)

    Thank you, Jessie. I haven' been out taking photos for quite some time and you've reminded me that I should return to the habit of taking my camera with me whenever I do leave the house.

    Hi Ben! I'm okay. Looking forward to the annual Christmas Eve feast and visit with my husband's parents and a Boxing Day visit (with good food involved) at my family's small gathering. :-) Christmas Day will be a quiet one here at the cabin--just us, nice and peaceful. ;-) I need to get over to see what is new on your pages. Happy holidays to you!

    Thank you, Ken. Dan is going to be making dinner for me tonight to celebrate b-day. One of his specialties--sautéed tricolor peppers over angel hair pasta tossed with a yummy pesto sauce and crowned with a fluffy little cloud of grated parmesan. A longevity noodle dish of sorts? ;-)

Thanks, Steve! Our end of the county has been slower to be developed but, like most other places, small farms and forests are always in the crosshairs of developers. And, unfortunately, fracking for natural gas has come to our county and that has changed the landscape in some areas. I've learned, having sold real estate for many years, that one can't really buy a permanently beautiful view (unless one has an outrageous amount of money)...because it might change due to actions beyond one's control. Hoping for the best--balance and thoughtful development. Our view is partially obscured by trees but opens up considerably at many points along the road we live on. We are blessed with an abundance of both state and federal land for public use in Huntingdon County and that is one of the things that drew me here to live over 20 years ago. Nice of you to stop by!
