The evidence...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 2 January 2013 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

...from New Year's Eve ... we even had a short dance in the living room just after our clock struck twelve and the crystal ball in Times Square, NYC had dropped on TV!

My Silly shot for this week was pushed ahead a day .

Thanks for a place in the Spotlight, Jan. 2, 2013!

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.
