Hello World

Am I happy right now! Daughter Zee got dial up so I'm gonna try to write something before this thing fizzles on me.
I'm moving my legs a wee bit better, but my left knee has been a pain, literally, locked in a knotty cemented lump. What with that and a recent birthday, I'm feeling my age!Thank goodness I still have my looks (Ha Ha!)

I have a new hobby I'm enjoying so much. Zee got me some stained glass tiles and she already had a bin of supplies like glue and beads and glitter and watercolor pens. First, I take cardboard, and the flaps of cardboard off boxes are best, and color the cardboard. You have to use the heavy stiffness of cardboard to hold the weight of the finished product.I take these pieces of broken colored glass and fashion whatever picture comes to mind on the cardboard.

So far I seem to always come up with undersea or mountain scenes. I use whiteout to simulate snow on the mountain peaks and nail polish to color fish green or whatever. I've done some pretty interesting ones. got to go, this pc is gonna disconnect--susil

Back again--So anyway, I sold one to a nice guy--I was gonna give it to him but he insisted on paying me. The bad thing is to frame them you have to use shadowbox frames, so I've only framed a few. The one Mr. nice guy bought showed a big colorful fish swimming along, whilst unbeknown to him, behind there is a huge fish, with an open mouth full of sharp sharky teeth about to eat him up. Below them a little fish swims out of the way.
Now that I'm able to be back on mybloggers, I'm gonna write a lot I hope.

Special thanks to Laura who has written interesting letters faithfullly for months and cheered me up so much. Don't stop I hope. Holding a letter is infinitely better than a pc!

XXXXXXXOOOOOOOO to all, Bye from susil.

I have really missed you and feel encouraged that you have movement in
your legs. Keep on keeping on dear Sue.

Gee whiz, I can't believe it! I still have lots of stamps, so more letters to come.

PS, the last letter you sent with the magazine story about Muffin the wild sheep (pet) was so cute and funny-enjoyed that!

Hello friend! I have of course saved every letter-- I enjoyed them all, and the variety of different stamps you use is astonishing-lots of them I've never seen before, so every envelope is saved too!
