It’s been fighting a cold flush bug that my daughter and granddaughter shared with me in our confined cabin last week. Not nice … So want it to exit the building pronto. Meanwhile, lots of books finishing up. Huge cheers for my authors who have crossed the finish line. Now, it’s momentum building time.
