In younger days
I created
a rite of passage --
a silver-dollar-size tattoo
on my left bicep
of the Chinese ideogram
for "double happiness"

Done in reds and greens
it now looks like a rheumy eye

How silly it appears
on my toothpick arm

Hi, Michael,
Just wanted to let you know that Bob and I are thinking about you. I also wanted to tell you how much I've gotten out of reading your blog and looking at your great photos. I only found out about the blog today. It's terrific.
Take care, and let us know if we can help out in any way.
Ginny R. /P.S. Glad you had a great Christmas!

Thanks so much, Ginny, and please extend my thanks, too, to Bob. I hope you and yours have the greatest of holidays!
