I do believe it means we're getting old. My ten year FW anniversary is a year away. Crazy!

I'm sure you're right about the getting older part. LOL. I was a vibrant 40 year old when I started at FW. Now I'm not. :lol:

Just added Margaret's EC winning entry to the list. Welcome back!

Very interesting list so far this week. Absolutely no repeats of any one author yet. That's very healthy and unusual, even just six weeks in.

Still a long way to go ...

Love, Deb
