First words:

Spring in Albuquerque consists of warm days and cool nights
and I like that just fine.  I know that both days and
nights are going to be a lot warmer in the Summer but I'm
ok with that too. I've always said that I can work with
sweat in my eyes but when my feet get cold I'm going to the
house (that's Southern-speak for going home). As an added,
truly priceless bonus, my COPD and allergy symptoms are
all but gone here. That doesn't do anything for the other
encroaching symptoms of normal aging, like deteriorating
vision, osteoarthritis and a random assortment of aches
and pains every morning but what would life be without a
few challenges?

Let's get started . . .

Last words:

I enjoy creating this publication but it seems a little
harder to get it done every time  Once before I decided
that I'd give it up when my subscriber count fell below
300 but when that happened, I just couldn't give it up.
Now I'm considering giving it up on my 300th issue. That
will be two years and seven months from now. What do you
think, will I make it?

Best regards to one and all.  I wish you love, luck,
health and happiness.

See you next time.
