As life happens, on March 21, 2017 mine went to hell in a handbasket. By May 1, my precious Cujo and BluKitty were dead, my house and my husband were no longer mine, and I was in Colorado looking for a new home. As it goes, it is starting to straighten out finally, but it is still nowhere near where it should be, should have been, or would have been. But such is life. I can say that for the first time in many MANY years, I am truly happy with the people in my life. That counts for a lot in my world.

Thanks to a most generous gift from someone who is my right hand and absolute heart, I am now a certificate-bearing, registered Lady. So when I sign off as Lady Elswet, it is due me.
