Smorgasbord Christmas Party – Guest Teresa Karlinski with Family First

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Smorgasbord Christmas Party

My guest today is Teresa (Tess Karlinski); a fabulous storyteller whether it is a piece of flash fiction on a Wednesday, or a trip through China or Newfoundland at the weekend. She is also wonderfully supportive and has been since I began my blog. When I wondered if anyone was actually out there… Tess would pop up with a motivating comment and make me smile. Tess is embedded into our community and many of us have reason to be thankful to be part of her tribe… as you will see in her short story…..

I followed her trip through China every week for months and she had me hooked. I do recommend that you head over to her blog and check the series out… You will need to order a takeaway and put up the Do Not Disturb sign for a few hours but it is definitely worth it. …

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!
