  1. Dearest, JB Weld? OMG, that is so you! Happy Thanksgiving from a mostly snowless MN!

    1. Ha! Yeah. It so rocks over any other kind of adhesive. Fixed a crack in the thick plastic bow of my car ignition key after nothing else held... (and yeah, there's the blade or the bit, and the bow)... Happy back at ya, Cordia.

  2. It’s late, but I am also grateful for you and your thoughtful prose. Also your Lillian Byrd stories!

  4. Hi,
    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one.New Year Messages For Friends I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.


Tell us your thoughts! You know you want to.
