I decided to say thank you for being my friend to the many people that make up my life here in Venice. I balk at the yearly letters that tell how great you are and all of the traveling you've done over the year, while I slaved over a hot stove,did the
laundry, kept many doctor appointments,picked up many a prescription at our local pharmacy, spent way to much time at Publix, nursed a car back to health,and tried to live within our remaining means. So, thank you everyone who I love, admire, learn from,
enjoy being with,and accept on your unconditional terms.To my family of choice, my mishpacha family, my Skinny Dippers, my friends from Mah Jongg , my Congregational family , my neighbors, my fellow dog walkers who I meet at odd hours of the AM and PM, my
mechanic, who I trust with my life, and my several veterinarians, who I have meet over this year and who have treated us very gently . I send wishes for your continued health and your friendship. That's it. That's what I wanted to say.
