... is sofar very limited, but Dear Husband and I took a beginners class last week. And we like it. And we will take another class, this autumn, and I was SO brave to go to the milonga, and some men actually asked me to dance, even if I warned them about my lack of skills...
but it was good.
Mary is dead.

I am sad.
Mary was diagnosed with liver cancer a while ago. Treatments have failed, and now she is at home with Hospice care. To die.
My grandmother and Marys mother have been penpals since the 1930's. Mom took grandma over to see Mabel in 1990's, and made friends with Mary - they are like sisters!
When Dear Husband held a post doc in USA, Mary was our support and extra family. Her children are like my cousins.
And now she is dying.
I try to remember the good person she is, but her family is in pain too, and there is so little I can do.

I just clicked on the shortcut to my userspace, and it looked like I had never entered a word! But it came back. So I'm OK.
