OK! I haven't disappeared. I'm still out here lurking, just a bit discouraged by my lack of blogging ability. I still can't figure out why, when I sign on to follow a blog, it lists my e-mail address without an image instead of my blog name & avatar. If anyone can solve this mystery, I'd really appreciate your help. Secondly, I'm still living with this Stegasaurus of a computer. The new computer fund is growing, but not fast enough for my liking. Because of this, all the pics I took in California I can't post, cuz this stupid computer can't download 'em. So, for know, I will do my best to post using my old camera & will will try to get caught up chronologically.
