Nice to meet you, Linda! I can't believe I've haven't befriended you yet . . . have added you now, though :)

Where/how/when??? What does it mean to be "spot-lighted???" Can you tell me? Did not know & don't know how to see . . .

Thanks for the praise & encouragement!

Thank you for stopping by and encouraging me. I made it through today. I can easily eat a can of nuts mindlessly.

Thanks for your note. I worked a lot in the yard. It works to rid myself of some frustrations. I have to admit I am rather down, and feel a bit worthless. My wife is about to kick my butt if I don't get out of this mood. I talked with my priest this morning, but he is from India and was more interested in understanding how they can do this to me, rather than offering any help. I have been avoiding food. I made a batch of pumpkin spice cookies for my son, which are safe, as I don't really like them. Exercise and work in the yard which was exercise, my back is telling me for sure, totalled over 3 hours today. Oh well, tomorrow is another day. And we had a beautiful day today, so I won't waste it wallowing in self-pity. Thanks again.

Bob
