How do I say thank you to four gals I’ve never met but feel I’ve known forever?

– the Sacramento ringleader,  lawyer,  activist,  singer,  has a song title for every occasion

– the big-hearted brunette from the Windy City,  blogger,  passionate educator,  kid whisperer

– the Jersey girl now California techie,  science writer and editor with an analytical mind,  also writes doggerel

– the photographer,  artist,  cake baker,  inveterate dabbler who’s been there,  done that,  and has grass skirt to prove it

For prompting us every week to  “think back and share our stories forward”,    thanks for the memories  – Suzy,  Laurie,  Marian and Barbara!

  1. Betsy Pfau says:

    Love it, Dana! You captured our admins perfectly and did a lovely job of thanking them! Great idea. I concur!

  2. John Shutkin says:

    I heartily second what Betsy saId above. A wonderful thought of gratitude and wonderfully executed. And all in 100 words!

  3. Wow, Dana, you have brought to clarity in this short form what was heretofore just a vaguely understood cabal of talented web-weavers. What a joy to join in celebrating this team along with the advent of a new year. Yea! And may I add: Thank you very much!

  4. Aww, thanks, Dee! I’m beaming (behind that mask). Thank YOU for the steady stream of wonderful stories…you help make what we do a joy!

  5. Laurie Levy says:

    Dana, that was so kind. It made my day. So, thank YOU Dana for sharing your stories with us. And you’re welcome!

  6. Marian says:

    You are so welcome, Dana, it’s been a year when we’ve tried to spread some connection with a sprinkling of joy, and it’s been so great to get to know you!

  7. Suzy says:

    Dana, thank you for this lovely tribute. And you’re welcome. As my co-admins have already said, we are so happy that you are here!

    I must admit it surprised me to see Marian described as the Jersey girl, since I am one too, and have written lots of stories about growing up in New Jersey. But I guess after 40 years in Sacramento it’s fair to call me a Sacramentan.

    • Thanx Suzy!
      Yes I well remember you’re also a Jersey girl but since our early transcontinental phone calls when you welcomed me to Retro and helped me master the technology, I’ve been calling you Sacramento!

      Actually this week you’re our Georgia girl so stay safe down there and bring home the prize!

  8. Beautiful cameos of our four Retro conspirators. Thank you, Dana, for your thanks!

  9. Nice, Dana! Thanks for bringing these women to life for me!
