Ann


Lovely and elegant Ann closes out 2014.  We met at a hardware store.

Ann is a a retired teacher, a widow with two grown sons.  One son has suffered from a very serious disease, with one failed transplant but a second successful one.   Last week he was able
to  visit her in West Hartford for the first time in 2-1/2 years.

Happy New Year, Ann.  Happy New Year, everyone else!

A wonderful portrait to finish the year Jack

Dear Jack, the cat to which you referred is not my cat. But it's a very nice cat. And it's never wrong. So, if you are feeling uneasy, examine thyself.

I'd hate to be a "catalyst" for an unfortunate event in the new year!

Heh, heh.

As for you, Monsieur Jack, happy New Year's Eve!

I'm guessing that Ann has a lot to celebrate in the new year. And she is indeed lovely and elegant.
