It’s the attack of the Leos once more. Well, maybe not so much an attack as a complete take over. When starting out on this post, I had no idea the amount of Leos there are in my life, goodness sakes! Ha ha. I must say, though, that I’ve actually been quite privileged to know and love (and be loved? :P) by so many of these delightfully wild creatures over the years.
So here’s my annual tribute to you all. – Along with a small humorous smidgen of what I think… heh.
