Please plan to join just before 3:00 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time on Sunday, April 19. If you try to join on any other day or time, the host will not be there.

Prepare to settle in with your own cup of tea or coffee, and a nourishing snack. We’ll have an interesting, unstructured conversation that’s open and free-flowing with no specific agenda. RSVP to Gail [at] AGoodGoodbye.com and let us know if you’ll attend!
