Our “The Lily and the Lotus” winners are Phyllis Vonmiller and Tinna Doub–you’ll be hearing from Jen tomorrow, when she contacts you for snail mail info. Congratulations to both of you.
I have to apologize for all these missed blogs, but here’s what’s going on. I’ve been getting up at 4 AM, weekends included, in order to be at my computer by 6, and I’m been writing like the crazy woman I probably am. I’ll be finished with the book on Saturday morning, and I sure hope you’ll all bear with me if I don’t get around to blogging every day.
I’m still reading “The Lincoln Letter”, and still loving it. My reading time, like my blogging time, has been very limited lately. I listened to a novel, “The Silver Star”, by Jeanette Walls, who wrote one of my all time favorite memoirs, “The Glass Castle.” I was hoping for another memoir, and I nearly didn’t give this book a chance. I’m sure glad I did, because it was truly wonderful!
A few words about my late cousin, Kay (Lael) Paparich. She was a beautiful woman, and she loved to sing. She loved her big family, her God, and her handsome husband, Louie, as we all did. She was always laughing, and at every family reunion, she sang, “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?” She’ll be missed, certainly, but I know she’s happy to be back with Louie, daughter Stevie, and numerous other friends and family members. I’m sure there’s a party going on, and with Kay there, it will be a dandy.
Godspeed, lovely lady.
It was an honor to know you.
