Easter. . .,What a joyous holiday. Don and I have been invited to Tony’s family home but we’ll stay together this year, just the two of us with our feline family. Next year when Amy and Tony are wed and the family is big-huge-we’ll go there. So happy holiday to all.
Last week Charlie aced the private school test and this week she tries out for the high school running team. This will be the last of our wonder girl’s story, book one. I hope you’ve all enjoyed Reconstructing Charlie, one of my early books.
