I am Bonnie Adams, and I love the way you write.  I've been a diabetic 
for four years now, and it's a real pain.

I'm on pills and insulin, and right now, I'm none the worse for wear.

I heard that you had married, (I don't remember how), so twenty years 
later, congratulations!

Tell me, what have you been doing with your life?  Any chhildren?  I 
have one, and he made it to forty, because I let him!  LOL.  Have lived 
in Califoornia twice and The Boston area twice, and I am between dogs 
now.  TSE turned me down for now, because of back problems, but if I get 
another dog from there or anywhere, it will be #10.

Well, hope this reaches you.  Haven't had a lot of lluck sending email 
lately.  Please, tell me what you have been doing, and about George.  
Hope wwwe can chat.  Hugs.

Bonnie Adams
