Thanks!

Thank you to all of you who sent emails just to say hello over the holidays! I am doing my best to get through them all! It’s exciting to see the readership of this site really expanding in unexpected directions. Hush Puppies for example, found out that I love slippers and moccasins and kindly sent me a nice pair! Cheers you guys!
