This blog, Crooked Creek, is just over five years old. It has been a good run, but it is time to bring it to an end. As I’ve told a couple of folks “I’ve said all I have to say.” They laughed, I suppose doubting there would ever be such a day. We’ve covered subjects fun and serious, general and personal, big and small. They will be here for several months if there is something you’d like to re-read and something you’ve missed.

I appreciate so much the 609 followers from over thirty countries. Some strangers I feel I’ve gotten to know through this relationship. Other followers are those I know personally and, regardless of the status, each follower is appreciated. Those who have commented have meant so much to me. Those comments added much to the subjects posted and encouraged me throughout the tough times when this platform became daunting. I wish each of you well.

I will be concentrating on health issues including chronic leukemia. Autumn is coming and I plan to get out and enjoy that favorite season. I’m hoping for more energy to explore in nature again as I have done in the past, walking the paths of Pope Lick Part and other beautiful and near by places.

A fond farewell, Sue B. Mattingly

  1. I wondered what happened. I thought maybe you had excommunicated me. I am so sorry to hear about the chronic leukemia. I have a friend with CLL. She is choosing to treat her disease partly with holistic medicine and partly with traditional medicine. I can give you her resources if you are interested.


    1. Thank you Rose. I’m still trying to decide whether to treat it at all. The side effects are overwhelming. I was diagnosed about 3 years ago and have done well until just recently. Thanks for you support of Crooked Creek.


  2. Your wisdom and your wit have brought much inspiration and hope to us. Thank you and you will be missed. Thank you, Sue, for shining your light.


  3. I’m going to miss your posts! I’m sorry I haven’t commented more often, but I’m limited by a health problem also. I’m so sorry to hear about your illness and I hope there is a way your health can improve.


  4. Prayers my friend. I may not have commented much. But I have truly enjoyed every word. Take that walk, smell the flowers and enjoy the fall colors


  5. Sue, I am so sorry to hear this. I have enjoyed all your various stories, book reviews and thoughts. My “Books to Buy” list has grown immensely because of your recommendations.

    Good luck with your health concerns and hopefully we will get together again for lunch when possible and safe.


  6. Ah Sue, I have enjoyed reading each and every one of your posts! Your wit, wisdom, insight and sharing of heart has been a blessing. May you be blessed with improved health to enjoy doing all the activities you love!


  7. Farewell Crocked Creek, we will miss you !

    Sue, I learned so much from you while readying your blog on so many subjects.
    Thank You.

    Please check out the Holistic approach.
    I think its a great idea until you decide on the other.
    Maybe you won’t even need to decide on the other anytime soon..

    Best wishes whatever you decide..
