A PERSONAL NOTE. . .

At last!
No more summerish days for awhile here in the Metroplex!
We're tasting Fall at last, though nothing severe.
The "FEEL" of Fall is my most favorite time of year.
I love that I've only needed to turn on the furnace
a time or two, just to 'get the chill off'.
I hasten to add, however, I am wearing sweats
and my winter PJs and robe!
It's such fun to really enjoy hot oatmeal in mornings
and soup or chili for lunch!
I've even done some Christmas shopping.

So - welcome to my Oasis!
I'm Nellieanna Hay, creator of this place.
It's something I love which brings me joy,
especially when you're visiting me!
This Oasis is my personal home on the net,
which I've nurtured so many years.
It's always a labor of love from its first timid start in 1997
when I personally began to create it 'from scratch'
to make sure it would slways be personal and special.
I remember that it was mostly special in its utter simplicity at first!
I knew nothing about making webpages,
except that it had to be my own creation,- else, why do it?

I spent many an all-nighter with it,
followed by an all-day session, learning about this challenge!
Obviously it's grown from then over the years.
But it aways has its personal ambience.

Please - feel welcomed and free to browse and visit
any time, whenever you can ~
or if you simply feel a need to relax in its laid-back ambience.
Thank you.

This Directory is my device to help you find your way around,
since there's much to browse.
Just click any of the page links listed here
and I've made transportation on each page easy.

Oh yes, - if you will, before you leave -
please sign the questbook to let me know you came by
so I can thank you!
