I may be able to hear you better in any language after yesterday's surgery on my ear. All went well and I'm rather proud of my temporary Van Gogh look. Finally, I'm a real artist! Have a great weekend.

    Dear Cynthia,
    Hope it was nothing serious with the ear! I like the new look though. There for a minute I thought it was a new fad!
    Feel better,

      Talk about an avant garde fashion statement! WOW. Hope the recovery is quick and pain free and that you’re back on your ‘ears’ again real soon. All the best – loretta
