  1. Michele, this is terrific! I will spend some time here – I want to get to know you and Rommie better.

    I read Rommie’s reply to Denali aloud to her. She listened, very alertly, and when I was done she gave a long Husky-howl. I don’t know how to translate that!

    I will go back and look at your poetry; things have been a bit challenging here, and I have fallen behind.

    May I say that you, and the “Joy Returns” message, are an inspiration to me?

    1. Yes Andrew you may say that JoyReturns’ message and I are an inspiration to you. It does my heart, and Rommie’s too, to know you find comfort and inspiration here. God Bless You.
