Chatty’s Anniversary!


    Chatty would like to take a moment to thank all of the people who have supported Glimpses through the Blog on this, her FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

    Chatty’s good friend N’awlins Nurse has arrived for a visit, which in itself is cause for celebration.  Ike having bypassed New Orleans (although NN had to evacuate for
Gustav…), she was able to make her trip as scheduled. Of course, our hearts go out to the victims of Ike, but Chatty is really glad her friend didn’t have to evacuate twice in two …
