Hi Ann,You amaze me! You do so well for someone that has had a stroke.You are right about VBB being a good place to socialize.We are all different ages but with similar likes ,two being baking and cooking.It's nice to see what everyone is up to and sharing with each other.I love looking around on the internet and learning new things I try to learn something new each day but that doesn't always work out or I forget what I just learned! lol lol lol! I do the daily puzzles in our newspaper.Talk with family and friends often.I love having my dogs around me,they certainly are entertaining.Plus these two give me a reason to get up every morning to take care of them and love them.
