Well my dears...

I hardly come on here any more. The truth is, I am an old lady and I forget things. Ok, the real truth is I decided to cancel my internet service at home to save money. Thanks to this recession, my retirement funds have shrunk, and my late husband's 401 K payments have been cut back, so I am cutting back on things I don't need.

I have been without internet for a couple of months now and I don't miss it. I have my steamy novels, my little Maxine, my free digital TV (I FINALLY broke down and bought that damn box they were advertising and my son installed it for me). And I have my cellular phone, Betty, Agnes, and all of you. But lately, it's been much harder to come here to the library to use the internet to write about what I have been doing.

So, much to my sadness, I have decided that for now, this is going to be the last time I write to you all. A little old lady has a busy life too. From volunteering to lunch with the gals, I have a full schedule. Plus, I am a regular usher at the parish, so I am a busy old Braud. I love you all so dearly and I am so glad you have become my friends, even if it is over the internet.

Perhaps one of these days I will come back and catch you all up on my life, but for now, my dear sweet gems, I must say goodbye.

Love always,

Madge Geraldine Sinclair

UPDATE: I will try to post on here once a month at least. I know it would be too hard if I never came back. I can't do that to you kids, especially since none of you are related to me...

Much love and admiration!

I'm glad you're keeping busy with things besides the internet. I am also very jealous at the same time : ) Take care Madge!

I will miss you. I have really enjoyed reading your blog. I did really wanted to hear about the grandkid however. Thank you for writing a goodbye note, and not leaving us hanging, wondering if something was wrong.

I will miss you!!! I hope you change your mind and come back, but this does sound like a goodbye letter.
Do you still check your emails? If I ever get published, I want to be able to share the news.
Much love to you,

A sassy, gassy, hip, old Braud from Kansas City cuts loose on the internet.
