I'm sorry to say to all of Rita's loyal followers she will be away from her blog for awhile.  She has some health issues that will require surgery soon.  I imagine her recovery will keep her from her computer until early next year.  

I'm not sure what upset her more; not being able to blog or facing a second year of having the holidays disrupted with health issues.  

I want to thank everyone that has e-mailed their concern over her recent absence.    

 The Old Salt  (Frank)


  1. ... and here, I was believing you and Rita were taking a well-deserved respite from any obligation that sometimes accompanies blogging!
    My heart is so saddened at this turn of events!!! You're both in Tom's and my prayers, today ... tomorrow, and the tomorrows that follow.

  2. Wishing you the very best, Rita. Such bad timing... with the holidays just around the corner but holidays are just part of life... good health is what matters.

  3. Well, Old Salt - - - so nice to "meet" you! Just sorry it took something like a "downturn" for Rita for it to happen.

    Please pass along to Rita my best wishes and thoughts.

  4. Pass along my good thoughts for her recovery. I will miss her writing and pictures...all the pictures. Take care Frank and give her my best.

  5. Just repeating my comment on the photo blog in case you only have time to read one set of comments. I am so sorry and sending my most positive thoughts and virtual hugs for both of you.

  6. I'll be keeping Rita in my prayers...

  7. Rita, I hadn't checked your blog since before Christmas and didn't know about this! I am so sorry you were ill over the holidays, but I pray you are getting better quickly and I know you are getting lots of TLC from the Old Salt! Know we miss you and are thinking about you and praying for you! All my best, always!

  8. I've been away myself and just saw this post.
    Every positive vibe I can muster is coming her way. Take care and get well soon Rita...

  9. God bless you, Rita...keeping you in my prayers!


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
