Thanks for your interest in this post - it is currently be re-worked.


  1. Good morning and happy new year, dear Allie-Millie! It's a good thing I'm receiving your emails because my reader roll still indicates you last published two months ago.

    Thank you for letting me know what you did over the holidays. Mrs. Shady tends a vegetable and herb garden. She and I are both fond of sunflowers and have grown them on our property over the years. I also like to scatter the seeds about for the birds and squirrels to feed upon.

    Thank you for informing me about Bryce Courtenay, Australia's most popular author at the time of his death. I haven't read any of his works but your testimony and Bryce's description of the sunflower have piqued my interest. There's nothing better than an author who can get inside your head and heart and keep you hungry for the next chapter and the next book.

    I am very grateful to have you as a friend as we swing into another year, dear Allie-Millie. I wish you a great week ahead and a safe, healthy and prosperous 2015!

  2. Hey Shady del
