Gary S: Thanks for the :bdaycake1: wishes. Getting old is no laughing matter as I've been sick since the end of last month. If I quit logging in in the coming weeks you'll know it got me. May 15, 2019 4:23:12 GMT
mistero: Here in Paris, an event let us print some postcards right out in th streets for free, apparently. I draw on paint ugly things, but who wants a postcard ? I'll print 5 at least anyway :) May 15, 2019 13:39:33 GMT

Steph Walford: OMG I so behind :( x May 21, 2019 19:14:56 GMT
rosesnbrambles: I'm behind, too! May tends to be a busy month for me but this year is the busiest yet with 2 commencement ceremonies for the second born and all the senior year programs plus preparing for summer learning (reading) at work and car shopping. May 21, 2019 21:47:39 GMT *
penguy: The past two weeks have seen a whole lot of letters arriving, and am I ever behind. And like resesnbrambles I have gobs of things going on this week. I sort of write in bits and spurts, so perhaps replies do the same thing. May 22, 2019 1:28:30 GMT
