maria Hey there,Sam
Thank you for add me as your friends.
It`s my honor to be in your friends list.
Best regards
Maria


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Sam thanks so much for the add. What an exciting life you've lived. I'd love to hear the lyrics to the song your wrote for your son. I planned on being a lyricst when I finished college, but marriage and family changed that idea. I've recently gone back to putting my poetry/lyrics back on paper...they dance in my head when I least expect it. I'm currently co-authoring a novel with a friend of 30+ years...and we're still friends...so far! LOL.
Blessings,
Jeannie
