Well it has become clear that I either need to "pea or get off the pot", as the expression goes.  Posting every few weeks is really not acceptable ( to me or you, I would imagine).  Despite having a wonderful life, I seem to have little that I feel like posting about.  So, I will do some soul searching re: my blog.

In the meantime I have a favor to ask.  This Thursday, 4/14, is my parents' 71st Wedding Anniversary.  Can you even fathom being married for 71 years?  I am trying to put together a "card shower" of sorts to make the occasion as memorable as possible.  They are both 93, very hard of hearing and they really don't like to go out to eat or anything like that.  We will be going up that weekend with some nice homemade food to share.

Would any of you be willing to send a card to them?  You could sign it "a friend of Janet" or something.  If you would like to do this the address is as follows:

address removed, please comment if you would like the address and I will e-mail it to you! 

Thanks so much!
