I am still learning how to blog, and I want to apologize if it looked as if I wasn't responding to the comments posted. They can forwarded to my email, and I'd been responding to them, and assumed that my response would automatically get posted on my blog. WRONG.
Fortunately, one of my sisters pointed out gently that I hadn't been seeming to respond to comments, and that helped me realize what was going on. (Thank you, again, my sweet sis.)
So, I have found and reposted my responses.
