What a fun July 4th Party! I didnt have to brush my hair or even change out of my PJs!
OK so there's no chocolate...but rather than a quick sugar high I get the sustaining nourishment of your thoughts, both meaningful and funny. Congratulations on your new blog and I look forward to more. May July 4th begin to transmute into new and dare I even say uplifing colors.

Happy Independence Day, my dear friend!! What a way to celebrate your life! We have been passing notes back and forth for a lifetime and I guess we just moved into the 21st Century!
I will celebrate you and our friendship by eating chocolate, too. I am celebrating one of the most courageous and inspiring people I know with each delicious bite!!!
Thank you for giving me a reason and an excuse to eat chocolate forever!!! Now I can do so whenever I like and not feel guilty or pissed off with myself because I am showing my deep love for you every time I indulge.
I love you, Pea, and I hope that as you divulge your life secrets, I won't recognize my own indescressions!!
Much love,


Ah, what fun! I have been enjoying this 4th with my oldest grandson, age 6 1/2, visiting us for a few weeks from Seattle. Your new blog is just wonderful, a great way for you to share you humor and perspectives, without ever having to leave home! And yes, I'll have some chocolate, if you insist...Much love, Shoosh


Good morning girl. Loved your piece today ( I managed to sneak in a second piece of the cookie while you busy chewing and whiping chocolate off your chin. ) You were sleeping too peacefully to wake you up. I'll call you on my drive south.
