A Little Tardy Note

“TardySlip” is undergoing some major summer renovation.

Though major changes are taking place, “TardySlip” will remain “open” for our wonderful visitors.

Please continue your visit as planned, while excusing superfluous commas & other “hot-mess.”

We look forward to stepping out with our “new face” at the end of June and hope to see you then! (Black tie, optional)

Sincerely, Miss Tardy

TardySlip is a personal blog site – not part of a business. As such, it is updated when the bloggers’ personal/professional commitments allow.
