Friday JohnKu – AKA TGIF



It has been a very busy week. My GRL is ready to launch. She is laying in the weeds over at Amazon waiting for the announcement on Tuesday. I’m so glad I finally prevailed over the gremlins. (There were many) I do want to thank all the folks who offered to help with the launch. You are all very special people. You will be seeing their posts after next Tuesday.

Today’s JohnKu talks about those who help others and is dedicated to the special group helping with the My GRL launch.

A hand extended,

With no thought of personal gain. . .

Deserves a reward.

Thank you all.
