It always so nice to hear from you and my goodness you have been keeping busy for sure. I'm glad that Maurice continues to do better and hope you get to add pictures. You can add them all at the top and then click and drag them down to place where you want in your entry.Little by little we will get to know the ends and outs here at blogger. I will get my jab next weekend if all goes well.

Those google alerts aren't working very well. I didn't get a notification on this or other entries of yours or lots of other people's either. Have a nice day! Hugs, Helen

Eileen said...

Oh, you have a very busy schedule and yes, I would love to look at your photos! Eileen x

Bunny said...

Ah, Jan, good to hear from you. I'm having trouble getting photos anywhere except up at the top, so to know that it is possible is comforting.
Hope Maurice's recovery is complete very soon.
I'm thinking of giving up mornings too - 6.45 is too early to get up in time for the weekly shop. They've built a huge porch at the supermarket and cut down on the `cripple spaces'. Grrrr!

Karen said...

I don't do mornings and I am proud of it!! In fact, when I have to make doctor's appts or do other things requiring an appt I tell them, "I don't do mornings." I just love being able to say that.
Love, Karen

HI Hunnie! You just remeinded me that I should try to get to the clinic for a flu shot. Last yr was my first. No one I knoew ever got the flu last season. But, those SnowBirds can bring anything with them. Isn't that interesting that the women traveled on different adventures. I love listen to the stories of travel. hugsss...

Odds Bodkins. said...

Yep, would be nice to see the pics Jan. Like you, I'm having trouble adding images anywhere but at the beginning of an entry.
Oh well, I'm sure we'll get there eventually.

You've really been quite busy, Jan,
just as you always were. I got my flu shot a couple weeks ago and hope it works. LOL...I'm not a morning person, especially when it's cold, and I have to go to work. You'll get the hang of the pictures and siggy's. xx

Nice to see a post Jan! Blogspot is very different to AOL journals when adding pics but I've finally mastered it! You can add as many as you like, I do! I'm glad Maurice is getting stronger. Have a good Sunday! Jeannette xx
