Talk to Me – What Changes Would You Like to See?

Today I was going to unveil the 2nd book in my new Children’s Book Giveaway.  Instead something else has been running through my brain.  So I’m asking for a little patience and I promise I’ll bring back the Children’s Book Giveaway next week.

I have been to Baltimore, Wilkes Barre PA, Englewood NJ and Merscerbeg PA.  One day I went from Englewood to Baltimore then back to Old Lyme CT – arriving at the wee hour of 2am.  I literally got out of the car, walked up the stairs and fell into the bed that night!  I have longingly remembered my college policy of owning more than 30+ pairs of underwear.  I only had to do laundry once a month in those days!! I have found that when traveling through PA on a Sunday your most likely only going to find Religion or
