I'm back

I'm slowly coming out of hibernation and wanted to post pictures of the book that I gave to my sister for her birthday in November.  I can't believe it's been that long since I posted here.  I'm amazed at how much more quickly time gets away from me since retirement.  I'd have thought it would be quite the opposite since my time was so much taken up with commuting and work that sometimes I couldn't keep track of it.  Now my pace is so much more leisurely and I get to fill my days with things I like and want to do.  And sometimes I even take a nap, such luxury!  Oh well, at least I'm here now.

My sister was kind enough to take pictures of the book so I could post them.  As I indicated in my last post, the book was given to her the day after we returned from a vacation in Hawaii.  I'd no time to take pictures so my sister was a real lifesaver here.  She was really quite concerned that I hadn't posted in a while and I'm sure she's been wondering where the heck these pictures went since I didn't post them right after receiving them.  Another thing I love about her is that she just lets me be and doesn't nag.  So without dragging this on and on, following are photos of the book beginning with the cover, the inside cover (which is quite naked except for decorative paper), all the pages including the very last page.


  1. Wow it's absolutely gorgeous and so is your sister, I was beginning to worry about you not posting but glad you occasionally popped up and commented on my blog to tell me you were alive and kicking lol

  2. Thanks, dear Bridget, for your concern. Still alive and kicking, just had been hibernatiing as I'm prone to do on occasion. Thanks for your compliments on my book and my sister. I have to say I'm in complete agreement.
