Hi, Carol! How are you? Happy 2016!!

Tried to send this to Pam and it was returned. Do you have a new email address for her? If you do and it is private, can you send my letter to her?

Hope you are feeling like dancing.

Love, Polly

  This is very good! Really enjoying reading about you and Patsy. Can not believe that you were ever playing among varmints and other people's discarded treasures?

May I take a pic of the cover and send it in to our NNHS web site? I will also tell them how much I am enjoying the book.

Are the beautiful flowers on the cover your favorite?

Would love to hear how you are doing.

Sincerely, Polly Davis
   Thanks, Polly! Wal, I do have a new addy for Pam. It changed when she moved to California, but I don't know whether or not she wanted it published, so I sent this on to her. Meanwhile, there is this link on TYPHOONMART now:

From - 01/13/16:
A well respected surgeon was relaxing on his sofa one evening just after arriving home from work. As he was tuning into the evening news, the phone rang. The doctor calmly answered it and heard the familiar voice of a colleague on the other end of the line.

"We need a fourth for poker," said the friend. "I'll be right over," whispered the doctor.

As he was putting on his coat, his wife asked, "Is it serious?"

"Oh yes, quite serious," said the doctor gravely. "In fact, three doctors are there already!"

It's Always You

Lyrics by Johnny Burke (03 Oct 1908 — 25 Feb 1964)

Music by Jimmy Van Heusen (26 Jan 1913 - 06 Feb 1990)

Recorded by Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 – 14 May 1998) with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, 1940

Whenever it's early twilight
I watch 'til a star breaks through
Funny, it's not a star I see
It's always you

Whenever I roam through roses
And lately I often do
Funny, it's not a rose I touch
It's always you

If a breeze, caresses me
It's really you strolling by
If I hear, a melody
It's merely the way you sigh

Wherever you are you're near me
You dare me to be untrue
Funny, each time I fall in love
It's always you
