NOTE FROM MARIE TO BLOGGERS:


To my fellow bloggers: I am sending my first bulletin regarding my situation, health-wise. I deeply appreciate the good wishes you have sent me and it is touching to know I’m not forgotten. I have had a very illness-free life so it was a surprise when I had a life-threatening medical emergency necessitating surgery followed by two months in hospital and another 4-5 months under the care of a hospital-in-the-home service. I am improving from day to day. I am pleased to report that I have regained strength in walking (now without aids) and I am becoming more independent and almost well enough to cope with living alone. My daughter saved my life in so many ways. She refused to give up on me and she nagged and bullied (in the nicest possible way) and persuaded me to believe the fight was worth fighting. She lives in the same street only a minute or two away if help is needed.

My problems melt into insignificance with the pandemic now affecting the lives of every person living on the planet. I wish you all a safe journey through the mayhem of life changing rules and the attack on the economy.

Take a Word Challenge - Showbiz

This week our theme is SHOWBIZ and I apologise for the lateness of my sneak peek.  Apart from major electrical problems at home, a lot more things have been going on and I haven't been keeping up with commenting and posting.  Again, I apologise!!
I have chosen the master of silent films, Charlie Chaplin, to illustrate Showbiz.  Can't wait to see your takes on the subject.
