    All my thoughts and prayers are with all the family and friends. I had not seen Reggie in years and then one day last year I was at a neighbors house and there he was. Had not changed a bit. It was nice catching up. God Bless!

    Bert, sometimes we have to swing too far in one diiectron to be able to come back a ways and find the right place. You don't know until you've been there' kind of thing.Jack, 70 backlogged posts? You must have a lot of words in your head, jockeying for prominence!Jo, the problem with grass is that it just grows back again the next week. Glad you can turn it into a creative time.
