By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

I enjoyed making myself a cup of Carmel Truffle coffee, chasing Kevin away from the computer for a short while and especially reading the things that you remember ( you know me, I do not remember any of the events from the past year) and checking on you. Thanks for sharing, have a great day!
