We interrupt this post, to bring you a special announcement! As has been the custom for me upon this day for many, many years now, I raise a grateful glass to a woman who has blessed my life in immeasurable ways. She is beauty personified – anyone who knows her, knows it to be true. Patient, wise, persevering, gracious, gifted, a fabulous writer and favorite comrade in any setting. Lucky me, to have such a friend. Happy Birthday dear Sooz…..Happy Birthday toooo youuuuuu!
