Winners are: Valia Smith and Elma Lamoureux. Congratulations, Valia and Elma! New contest in progress; as always, just comment. Two winners will be chosen at random, notified, and posted here. Each will receive an autographed copy of my latest book.
Now, for the update. I am still under the weather. I became dehydrated and went in yesterday for an IV, and I was given some tests, mainly to diagnose or rule out a condition called c-diff, which results from overuse of antibiotics. Ironically, it is treated with more of the same. It is highly contagious (who knew?) so no one can come near me except for one ranch hand, Kat, who has already been exposed. It certainly makes a person grateful for ordinary good health!
That’s all the news that’s fit to print. (Trust me, some of it isn’t.)
