Sorry that I've been goon with the wind so long.  I can't get healed up, eye or thumbness...

I found these New Questions a few weeks ago... I've been missing my memes..... 😪

  1. I hope you thumb and eye are better soon!

  2. Thank you Linda. It's been like a cascade but time is the healer.. they say
    Best Wishes for a Sweet Holiday Season.

  3. I've been missing you, Zippi. I hope your eye and thumb and heart and everything else gets to feeling better. I know it's a crappy time of year to not be at your best.

    1. I’ve been missing you also. You are a Boony friend. My thumb is still frozen but it seems to be less painful every few days. At 76 ( soon) I will not want yet another surgery. It really messes with a person’s brain, something i’m not willing to give up just yet. I’ll wish you a Good Yule, and let’s celebrate it together.. *raises a glass to Country Dew*. 🥂

  4. Healing thoughts to you!!!! I can totally relate to your posted saying!

    1. Oh thank you, P.J. It's hard to heal at this age. And another operation looms unless cortisone will heal the thumb. And, I really am done. Just done. I don't even do that much in other social media anymore either. Thanks for your sweet wishes...I ♥ U!
