Blue Monday Exits

For many years after having my first cup of tea I would upload my entry to the blog, Blue Monday.

This blog was hosted by a very special woman named Smiling Sally.

Sally died last week, but she left this gift on her blog. A dear friend Jeanne wrote this tribute to Sally.

You was a special lady. I enjoyed my time with her. 

Mondays will always be BLUE thanks to Sally.
