Lorelei Orion Hi, Denise. I'm at your profile and saw your comment. Thanks! I don't understand this reply stuff, either. Because, if I reply to you, shouldn't it go to you? I'm still trying to figure it out, too!

Take care
Lorelei

Hi Christine,

What a wonderful thing you do to help handicapped children and make bracelets. Do you sell the bracelets, too?

I'm glad you loved my book and I wish you well. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

Denise

Denise Baer I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying the book. You touched my heart that you appreciated the sign bookmark. It was so nice of you to say.

What I do for fun is read and I enjoy doing creative things like creating the bookmark I sent you. I also love traveling and seeing different cultures.

How about you, Christine? What do you do in your spare time?

Have a great day.
