This is when you REALLY want to be a palm reader! Or have one handy… This lady lives just up the road from me – ran into her in her altogether on the way home this afternoon… Medusa had nothing on her!!!

Sorry I’ve been missing out a day or so here and there… the wedding is 8 days away… energies are going elsewhere…

I don’t rightly know if the woods down here have a proper name. But in the Lord of the Rings movies they played Lothlorien.

I’ve got no trouble believing there’s elves or other sprite-life dwelling here…
