Hi Scoop friends!!!  Happy New Year! I wish you blessings and joy in 2017! I hope you are ready for another fabulous year of THE SCOOP. A big thank you to all the people who sent me well-wishes as I recover from foot surgery. It’s winter here at StoneGable, but not one speck of snow to be found. In fact, it feels like late fall. So if you have extra snow in your area please send some my way! Don’t forget to enter the STONEGALBE READER APPRECIATION GIVEAWAY FOR JANUARY…

    I need to let you know that no matter what I click onto here in your blog, takes me directly to SKIMMLINKS. I really don’t know what that means except for two things….they tell me to let you know and I was told that getting that directive usually means your blog has been hacked. Sorry to tell you this, but I love your blog and I can’t see anything on it. If you find out somthing an it has to do with my computer, please let me know.

    Hope your foot is healing…on to a Happy and Healthy New Year.
