  1. Thanks for sharing Jen. Did you ever see “Seinfeld” from years ago? You could be a writer for a new version because of your way to us humor and write “something about life’s nothing’s.” I am a bit behind reading your posts and writing more, but I will keep marching forward.

    Hmm, I wonder who will call me today?
