I did not get everything done that I wanted to accomplish. I was sick from early August through the end of November and then recovering from a tonsillectomy into mid-December.  I hope in 2018 I complete many projects!  You can see my 2018 Project List HERE.

We had 2 major losses in 2017:  Franc & General Bonkers.  We love & miss you both so much!!!
