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
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.
