We enjoyed another good week and I thank you all for coming out and sharing your posts.

but the fruit is sweet. Aristotle


May the timeless message of Christmas fill your heart and home with joy now and throughout the coming year. May you have the gift of faith, the blessing of hope and the peace of His love at Christmas and always. Holy Christmas Night. On this holy night may your heart be illuminated with love, joy, and peace.



This will be our last roundup post for 2018.
Thank you all for your continued support and participation.
The doors will open again on Monday, January 8th, 2019 at 2am PT – See you then!

    • Hi Crystal, Please note that we will not have a SeniorSalon thread this coming week. The doors will only open again on Monday, Jan 7th. So keep those posts and on Jan 7th, you can share again. Merry Christmas and all the best and thank you for your support

  1. Congratulations on another great week! Hopefully you’ll be inundated for the next one with all those posts that we’ve been storing up for you – on Monday 7th Jan I think 😉

    A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, your family and friends, and all members of the Senior Salon! 🎅🎄

    • Dear Clive, Thank you, for your kindness, support and yes, I am looking forward to all those stored up posts. Keep them coming, my friend. May you also have an awesome and wonderful Christmas and New Year.
