Lois, how delightful! I would have loved to have been there.

Nas, it does look like the Philippines will be hit with this typhoon.

Karen, I did make it to the lunch and really enjoyed myself. The cut melons were not part of the menu but I do see it disappear whenever I bring it.
The weather was fine. We did have a few showers but at the home we were at we were able to stay inside if we wished.
Sorry about the wind in your area but glad you did not loose power.
Sorry about your IBS.

Tee, what a mess about your lock boxes. Sorry they would not release your neighborís mail to you even with ID.
I will say this about our rain. It is not cold!

I had a lovely time with the family and yes I did over eat. It did not stay late and was really glad to get home when I did as my stomach decided to cut up.

This month is almost over and I have had not suggestions for activities for next monthÖ

Jane

Jane...Sorry about the rain and wind and glad you are okay. I hope it doesn't rain on Thanksgiving so you can enjoy family.

Lois....Wonderful party. I am sure the cheerleaders will remember the day for a long time. Wish I were part of that group.

Karen....Sorry your IBS acted up. I hope you felt well enough to make mac and cheese. I had tummy problems yesterday. Only Romaine was recalled. I eat organic fields of green.

Nasfkab.....Cheddar cheese can be used instead of Velveeta.

My day started with handyman waking me up so he could access neighbors pipes and turn off water. Argh! Always happens on a work day.

I went to PO to pick up my mail since I was up early. No customers or lines I got my mail and stamps. Neighbor gave me his driver's license so I could pick up his mail, but PO wouldn't give it to me. I asked PO manager when mail delivery would resume. Everything she said was a lie. Found out when I got home that manager called PO to ask them to open box so handyman could fix until new boxes arrive. PO told them that mail person was on vacation and took key with him. That is a lie since half our complex receive mail and mail person needs key to open those boxes.

Started raining early this morning. I got wet twice. Going to PO and work. The only thing I dislike about the rain is I can't get tv reception.

No rain when I left works. So, I went to Kohls to walk around. I found several tops. All were too big except the one I wanted. Kohls is the only store where X size women fit into XL. Thanks Kohls! I ordered the holiday top I liked from their website and will pick up in store next week. It was $4.50 Can't beat the price even if I only wear once or twice.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family. emoticon

Lois what a fun night with cheerleaders. Wish I could see it!

Jane...Weather sure does help to determine if we leave our homes. Hope you get to take your fruit to the party. My great-grandkids love fresh fruit.

Tee...Are you able to get good lettuce for your salad? I am seeing lots of recalls.

Nas...The mac & cheese is good for the second day. I just microwave it. Can you get Velveeta cheese?

It is very windy here. Power is out in a community near me. My IBS has decided to flair up but hopefully I will get to the kitchen this afternoon. Yes, I am a mess but life is still good.

Hope you all doing ok today!

What a hoot we had last night. At our senior facility we had a "football" dinner with all the food items one would get at stadium....including peanuts and cracker jacks. We recognized all former football players....only 3. Then, we recognized former cheerleaders. We had 10 in total but only 5 wanted to perform. Last week I got with those 5 (3 in wheelchairs) to teach couple cheers to them. Well, they wanted to perform a cheer from their era.....three were in their 90's.....Here it is:
Step on the starter, crank old Lizzie.....come on team, lets get busy! LOL...... Last night I gave them all orange and blue pom poms......(it was just like a scene in the movie with same name!) and they were in their glory days. emoticon

Nas, Guam is a small lovely island between Hawaii and the Philippines. It is a US territory that has military bases as well as a civilian population. It is tropical so warm and the population is very warm and friendly. We have people from all over the world here.

Karen, we have had wind and rain for a few days. I am hoping it will be clear tomorrow as I do not want to get wet. Because of the size of our gatherings they are held outside using the carport and tarps to keep the sun off.
Your Mac and Cheese sounds delicious!
I have watched some of Dancing With The Stars when stateside but not here as I do not have a TV by choice.

Tee, you sound so busy! Sorry about forgetting veggies but good you got them when you went for window wash.
The storm went south of us around 2:00 a.m. with gusts up to 60 mph recorded on Andersen Air Force Base which is north of me. We have had a lot of wind and rain all day long. The trash cans are fine. One did not tip over but the other did. They are empty.
My concern now is for the Phillipines, Taiwan or Okinawa as the storm intenstifies.
I am taking cut fruit to our lunch tomorrow. I try to bring healthy things that the children will eat. At this time I plan to go but if it is raining a lot I may stay home.

Jane

Jane...Praying everyone is safe on Guam. Sorry you went to church when it was cancelled. I hope trash cans survive too.

Karen...Your mac and cheese sounds delicious. I never made it from scratch, but will taste homemade at knitting Xmas party on Dec 8th. I watched Dancing with the Stars. The show was entertaining. I don't watch the Voice.

Nasfkab..You can half or quarter recipe so there isn't leftovers. I do this all the time.

I was able to charge my phone. It is a fast charger with cable that attaches to side of plug. Cable came loose and wouldn't charge. I check cable to make sure it is secure before charging now.

My day started with trip to grocery store two blocks away to pick up salad fixings for work lunch. I took thyroid med after waking and headed out. Parking impossible, store crowded and few cashiers. There were so many displays in the aisles, shopping was like navigating a maze. It took over an hour to shop and check out. I didn't go to PO to retrieve my mail since I felt nauseous in store and needed to go home to eat breakfast. I discovered I forgot to buy tomatoes and radishes while assembling salad. I showered, ordered a pizza for neighbor to pick up in the afternoon and headed to work.

My windshield was dirty when I entered car. I was out of wiper fluid when I tried cleaning it. So, back to the store I went for fluid, tomatoes, radishes, etc on way home. I filled fluid container when I got home and it is raining now. emoticon I am glad I didn't wash car. LOL

My turkey is defrosting in refrigerator. I am looking to staying home, cooking and watching Macy's parade in the rain.

Hello from Ohio

It is overcast today & 46 degrees. Anyone with extra sunshine send to Ohio. High wind watch for tomorrow. Perhaps a higher pain day.

I will try to get some prep done today so my Mac & cheese has a head start. I will make a white sauce & add Velvetta Cheese. Mix in cooked macaroni & top with cracker crumbs & drizzle butter. Bake for 30 minutes. I need to make two batches so it will mean lots of standing & stirring.

Last night I watched DANCING WITH THE STARS. I wanted to see how former AMERICAN IDOL contestant Alana did. They all danced great. The VOICE is getting down to top 10 with many great singers. Anyone watching it?

Roz, good to hear from you!

Tee, really sorry about the boxes. What a bummer.
Hope you get your cell charged.
Glad you had a good swim and hope the administration sides with the people with health issuses.

Thanks, Nas. I don't mind driving especially during the daytime. I missed the dinner last year because I was so sick with chemo, a cold and bladder infection. Family brought me food that was great!

Everything got messed up today because a tropical storm is to pass south of us around 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. Tomorrow schools will be closed and government offices will be closed until we go back to Core 4.
Church got canceled this evening and I did not find out until I got there.
My trash cans are out and may blow around but I am not going out in the dark to secure them. Last time I just took the lids off so they filled with water that secured them.

I understand snow is expected is several places so please stay warm and dry everyone.

Jane

Your Thanksgiving plans sound great, Jane, rather you than me with driving never managed to do it, I have to arrange a Weekly Lunch too or maybe every other week. All the best all may all your problems be solved & enjoy life.

Jane...Sorry you couldn't pay both bills at the same time. Some days are like this. Glad you enjoyed lunch with friends. Driving yourself to Thanksgiving feast is good idea.

Roz.... emoticon

I went to arthritis class today. Lady that went to meeting with heads of gym said they will decide about class after Thanksgiving. The pools were cold and empty and I enjoyed swimming.

I received an email that the fitbit I ordered will be sent soon. I never received a response from their customer service and from what I can tell they only charged and sending one fitbit.

I attempted to charge new cell several times today. None worked since one plug was always out of socket. One of those days! Phone states it can be charged wirelessly. I have no idea what that means and will ask tech son.

I didn't grocery shop tonight since the thought of crowds and eating chicken and salad this week was too much. I plan to head to store early in the morning to buy work lunch fixings. I will stop at PO to pick up my mail since boxes not fixed. PO notice is 3 days old and nothing has been done yet. Groan! Worse time of the year not to get mail.

This has been a crazy day and only Monday!

When I was really sick I missed paying my water and power bills. I got my power bill and have two months payments. I went to pay the power and water and found I had one check. I had lunch with the Monday Lunch Bunch, came home, rested and then went back to pay the water bill. Crazy day.

I will be going to the extended familyís for Thanksgiving at one of my DILís sisters. My granddaughter was going to pick me up but then I would have to stay until others were ready to come back to Yigo. I am having her come to my house so I can drive and then leave when I need to. She is happy with that and it will not put any one out because grandma just is not up to staying for hours.

Nas, I love saris! When I was a teen the ladies from Nepal came to the U of Oregon for the summer. They were the first women to be able to read as before that if caught with a book in their hands they would be executed. My sister had a rooming house near the university campus and the ladies stayed there that summer. When they left they left some of their old saris which delighted me and my nieces who are only a few years younger than me. I kept one for years but it finally fell apart.

Jo Ann, glad you arrived in California safely and are getting settled in.

Karen, it is nice to have the option of staying home or going out. Your daughter is a sweetie.

Tee, drat it, I would have enjoyed the movie.
I am glad you got a phone that you like. Gingerbread cake sounds delicious. I am so sorry about the mailbox situation.

I made it to church this morning and taught the Childrenís Church class. We did not have a service this evening because Pastor had Guard duty and could not miss more than what he did in the morning. I came home and slept. I still do not have a lot of endurance.
This next week is going to be busy for me and I hope I can do all that is planned.

Jane

Jane...Glad your water is on. What we had isn't on Netflix.

Nasfkab....Great that you bought sari and cinnamon.

JoAnn....Welcome to So CA. Good to hear you made it here safely and enjoying tv.

Karen...Nice that you are content to stay home. I hope you are able to get mac and cheese ingredients.

I went to bed early and slept well but couldn't get my motor moving. I managed to get fans ready to put in storage, but never put them there. I was watching tv when daughter phoned in the afternoon. She was sick and just woke up. She instructed me to buy phone and she would authorize since I am on her plan. Purchasing phone took 3 hours and worth the wait and hassle.

I bought a Fitbit versa from their outlet that was advertised on facebook last night. Website stated my payment failed twice. Third time website accepted my cc. I was scared that I ordered three fitbits since 3 showed up on their website. So, I wrote them immediately to tell them what happened and requested they cancel two orders and only send one. They didn't answer, but I only received one charge and email about order.

I stopped at grocery store on way home and found gingerbread cake mix for my neighbor's Xmas present which was $4.50 a box. He loves gb so much, he brought a box back from DC this summer. Then, home to make pork loin, rice and broccoli for dinner.

Found note in my door from management. PO won't deliver mail here until mailboxes are replaced, which really angered me. I replaced lock on my box last year. So there no reason why PO can't deliver my mail and I have to go to PO to pick up. Owner was aware we needed new boxes 2 years ago and did nothing bc they are expensive to replace. It is always something!

Knitting and swimming tomorrow.

It is another cloudy day. My daughter messaged me this morning to see if I need anything. Nope. She offered going for lunch. No. I am content with staying inside another day. Sure hope I make it to church tomorrow. I know there will be many winter days to stay home. I will need to venture out for ingredients to make mac & cheese for family dinner on Thanksgiving.

HOPE IT IS A NICE WEEKEND FOR EVERYONE ON THIS TEAM.

I am in southern Calif. It is so nice to be here in our old house. Our friend bought a new TV and we get lots of channels now. I do have limited internet but I can manage. I missed sparking. We stayed one night along the trip with our oldest daughter and her DH. They have a tiny little guest house. I will catch up with the posts later a bit at a time.

Water came on around 8:00 p.m. Glad I had it run into the sink as it was brown for a moment or two.

Karen, glad you have sunshine at least part of the day. If the movie is on Netflix I should be able to see it.

Oh, Thelma, I am so sorry about loosing things because of a supposed upgrade. Thank you for the heads up if you go away for awhile.

Tee, I hate long lines, actually I hate short lines. I have always blamed it on lining students up all the time for years. Hope you get the cell phone you want.

One of my friends that I eat lunch with on Tuesdays called. We are going to go to the movie about Mr. Rogers before we have lunch on Tuesday.

My youngest turns 50 on November 23. I sent him a birthday wish on fb. We will see what he says and his friends.

Jane...It is always something. I hope the water in back on. The movie I wanted to see said cc on theater website, which lead me to ask manager about device. I am glad I did since it made the movie enjoyable.

Nasfkab....Thanks for sleep wishes. I changed cpap setting. It was better, but I slept little since I stayed up to read a book and need to set limits.

Karen.....I saw that movie. I hope the sun comes out in your area.

Thelma...Sorry Windows update messed your computer. I won't update. I read Windows 10 removed some programs that weren't being used. I am sure a fix will come quickly since customers are complaining.

I watched Youtube video the pulmonary doctor sent me about how to change cpap settings. Changes took an hour. I slept better and woke with little nasal congestion.

I went to Costco to buy new cell phone that is on sale. The line and wait for Verizon employee was long. I met a Samsung employee that provided a lot of information about the phones. Then, I left store so I could swim b4 kids swim lessons started. ATT employees were twiddling their thumbs. I sent cell info to my daughter and pray she gets back to me tomorrow so I can purchase phone before store runs out. People were buying 3-4 phones when I was there.

I unassembled and cleaned fan so I can store tomorrow. It is too cold for a fan and more rain predicted. I returned a bag of books I borrowed from the gym since I can read books on ipad. Getting rid of clutter feels good.

I am tired and going to bed. Night!

When I did a Windows 10, version 1909 update this morning I lost all my pics (thank goodness I put them on a flash drive a few weeks ago) lost any downloads, documents and the apps no longer work...even Windows Store is inoperable . From Google I see I am only 1 among many. Have been trying to figure out myself how to fix with no luck. Will call tomorrow to see what the price is to unistall and reinstall....may be just as cheap to buy a tablet I have been wanting to do...totally sick about things I lost but gotta get over it and not ruin my health
I will have to remember to write down my steps at end of day since Fitbit app not working...not connected to my printer....technology at it's worse. Hopefully I can still come here but should I vanish for a while know that it is likely this going on...will get back ASAP if it happens

I watched a movie last night that was about a family learning to accept dementia. It was a really good movie except for the language. WHAT THEY HAD is name of movie.

It looks like the clouds are starting to break up so maybe we will see the sunshine later today! I am hoping!

Jane.. Hope you have water. We take the blessing of running water for granted some times. I have a partial & it has served me well for about 10 years.

Karen, I think if movie theaters found they had more customers with closed caption movies they would provide them. Check with your friends and then contact the managers. There is a large group of deaf that their motherís had rubella when pregnant with them who are now in their mid 50ís. The epidemic was world wide.
I hope you do not need to replace your teeth with dentures. I have a partial denture and it is a pain in the mouth.
We do have urgent care facilities here but I use my insurance so do not use them.

Nas, you are funny but you did remember the time difference.

Tee, it is good to know about the CC device as I was not aware of it.
I think the quality of medical care does depend on the doctor and how they respond to your needs.
Sorry you are having trouble getting a nice bathroom rug.

We have not water in our area today. They sent the children home from school around 9:00 a.m. and eventually my water went off and someone said theirs is off about a mile from me. I found out the schools were canceled when my son called to see if I could pick up my granddaughter. When I called in the early afternoon I was told they were still looking for where the leak was and hoped to have it on by 11:00 p.m. this evening.

Jane....Sorry you had to cancel chiro and calling. Glad you did laundry and rested.

Karen.... You can only see theater cc on device they give you that sits in cup holder. I hope dentures don't cost a lot.

Nasfkab....I am glad you like your urgent care facility.

I went to two different hospital urgent care facilities. One doctor in each facility wasn't good. One doctor in each facility was good. Care seems to depend on the doctor I see. The best treatment I received was from drugstore clinic in Pa that even followed up with me.

Lidocaine patch took away my pain. I have been waking in middle of the night since doctor decreased my thyroid medication. I only sleep 3 hours before waking, but eventually able to go back to sleep. I slept 7-8 hours straight on higher med dose. I am going to lowering cpap pressure tonight to see if that helps. Pulmonary instructed me to lower pressure when my nose is clear and increase pressure when I have cold or stuffy nose.

I noticed my ceramic cat was dusty when I vacuumed this morning. Washed cat and let it dry in sink while I worked. Organizing linen closet and dusting is on my to do list this weekend.

I exchanged bathroom rug tonight. New rug in right color and too small. So back it goes. I purchased gift for my grandson and two more of the same for children's hospital oncology unit that my boss is collecting.

Rain is gone. Sunny days and cool mornings and nights.

I know they are good at these Urgent Care facilities, I remember in 2013 I fell off my bed & the nail of one big toe almost came off they called another Dr to work on it etc. All the best all.

Nas... Thankful for Urgent care facilities but good to not have to use them. My granddaughter Kelli recently got a job at an urgent care type facility. It is sort of a clinic. She has worked at a hospital but likes this job better.

Thelma... I do believe the flea market store in a nearby town use to be a store like you mentioned. I cannot remember the name. but it sure was the good old days.

Tee.. I will need to see if my theatre offers a closed caption. but i cannot imagine how that would work since not everyone else would want CC.

Jane... Thankful that a teacher helped us to learn to read. Do you have lots of books & magazines ready for you to turn the pages?

My next contribution to medical personal may be at AFFORDABLE DENTURES. I am thinking about having my lower teeth removed & getting dentures. No insurance so I am hoping they offer same discount as last year. 50% off January-March.

Karen, good to hear about the massage and then the movie. Glad the girls could explain it to you.

Tee, I hope the gym situation works out. Glad you got your grand a doll she will like using a discount coupon.
Hurray for the rain!

Thelma, you sound like you are better. Sorry the doctors want a biopsy. Hope all goes well. Someone has to make sure the doctors and staff have food on the table.

Oh, Tee, I am so sorry about your knee and leg! What a mess.

I have not done much today but rest and read. I was supposed to go to the chiropractor today but called and canceled. I did do a load of wash so I have clothes to wear. I was asked to do some more calling for the GMHVA but declined because I did not feel up to it.

I hope California gets more rain!

Jane

Karen...Wonderful that you are pain free and enjoyed taco and movie. I used closed caption to watch Downton Abbey in theater since I have hard time understanding an actress with heavy British accent in the film. The screen the manage gave me attaches to seat drink holder. CC device worked well and I enjoyed move.

Thelma....Good luck with the biopsy and cardio check. I think at our age, we are paying for the doctor's vacation. LOL Great that you and DH went to stores.

The rain was heavy during the day and stopped by 5 pm. I went to return frying pan and walked around store. I had to park far and store didn't have anything worth buying. I won't go there again. I went to three stores next to purchase groceries since supermarkets closed here. I was walking into apt complex with two bags in my hand and tried stepping down from step in garage. My knee wouldn't bend and I tripped. The pain in my left hip, knee and ankle was so bad, I had to put lidocaine patch on the areas for relief. It is always something!

Tee, glad to hear Ca. is finally getting the rain....would be nice if more were to be expected. I hope the ladies manage to get what they want at the meeting...perhaps the gym director will be of some help...fingers crossed!
Jane, I am sorry you seem to be going thru a yo-yo syndrome with that nasty bug you had.
Karen, I am jealous of the massage you got...but glad it made you feel better....movie and popcorn for $5??? Wow!!! What a bargain!
Tomorrow morning I am to have a biopsy of the nodule that was found on my thyroid when the CT scan they did of the tumor on my neck. you know that thyroid that was suppose to have been eliminated years ago with the radioactive drink? So I agreed to the ENT to have this done....gosh they just never tire of poking holes in me! Made appt same day to see heart Dr a a follow-up after the cauterization that was done several weeks ago. Between the two of us we are keeping food on someone's table emoticon
Today we took a ride to pick up the cheese that DH & DS like....we stopped in to an antique/craft store. The building used to be long ago a G.C. Murphy building...the building is huge! The sales lady said the upstairs AND downstairs were used back then. I then remembered that when I was home in the city we went to also had one of those stores that was in a building just as large as that one. Oh my, the good ole days!

Nasfkab...Good that you and family go to Right Care. I looked them up on the internet. It is an urgent care facility. We have many of those here with different names.

Karen....Glad you had nice haircut and visit. Sorry about your car battery.

Jane...Nice that you were able to shop. Sorry you are too tired to attend church.

I received email from gym director regarding her looking into situation. I won't know more until Monday when I go to class and meet with ladies that attending meeting.

I went to Target after work last night since I had $5 off coupon. I bought Elsa doll for granddaughter and finished shopping for her. I also bought bathroom rug which I thought was the right color. Turns out it is too blue and needs to go back. I am taking hand towel with me to make sure I buy right color rug.

It is cold and rainy here. Raining hard now. Free car wash. We need the rain. It will heat up again over the weekend.

I had a wonderful relaxation massage today. She used CBD cream & I feel so good now. No aches or pains right now. Last night I went for tacos with my daughter & niece. We then went to see a movie. It has been years since I have been to the movie theater. It was $5.00 night which included a bag of popcorn. We saw Last Christmas. I enjoyed it even though I could not hear everything. The girls explained the story to me later.

So blessed to be able to get out for that massage

NSFKAB, I was not aware of programs like Right Care for those without insurance. Glad you can use it.

Karen good you got a nice haircut. Sorry about the car battery. Hope you do not need to replace it.

I think I overdid things yesterday. I have done little today but did get the groceries but when it was time for church I was too tired.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Stay safe and warm all.

Jane

It was so nice to get my hair cut & set. I went to CVS before the cut & came out to a dead battery. I was able to walk to my hair cut salon & then called AAA. I was surprised when a young gal came shortly & jumped my battery & home I came. I am going to try to start my car in a few minutes. I may need a new battery. We shall see.


Tee... I do not have Netflix. I have been recording lots of movie ob the free preview my cable is giving right now. I hope those feisty seniors win the battle. Most seniors are on limited budget & cannot afford luxuries.

Sorry to know what happened to your friend, Karen, sad the Dr or his office did not pay attention to her & she went to ER. My daughter takes me to something called Right Care as I do not have insurance in US. I do not like watching things like Crown as I know they make up things or its not really my interest. Hope you can get through to the directors of the pool, Tee. Great you enjoyed a fun day, Jane.

Karen, it is rough when you know all you can do is let a bug run it course and it is slow. It sounds like the ER doctor is dealing with a secondary infection from the first one.

Tee, the battery is in the key. I knew I needed to get it changed but getting so sick messed things up but good. At least I was home and she was free in the afternoon as her classes are in the morning.
Good to hear the seniors at the gym are not taking things lying down. Good for you!
I have been watching Crown but perhaps when the changes occur I will stop.

I had a fun day. Had lunch with the Tuedsay group and then we decided to go to the movie, Midway. Most of it was really well done but in the battle of the Marshall Islands they depicted the islands as mountainous instead of atoll. Anyone who has been in the part of the world knows the difference.

Take care, stay warm and healthy Grandmaís.

Jane

Jane.....Your granddaughter is angel. I didn't know that keyless ignitions required batteries. I learned how to use bow and arrow when I was a child and taught my son to use one.

Karen...I am glad your enjoy your GD cutting your hair while catching up on family. Your fb friend need to get a new doctor. I am sure she will feel better now that she has right medication.

I got an earful in arthritis pool class today. Three participants wrote to gym directors about charging, and other class changes. They told me it sounded like directors didn't know about the changes. Anyway, directors are meeting with these women on Thurs and asked other class participants to write or phone them regarding their concerns. I emailed all directors my letter tonight. The head of pool said he expected seniors would complain. Then, forget about it and pay fees. He is in for an awakening. These women are prepared to take this issue to newspapers, etc if nothing changes.

Does anyone watch the Crown on Netflix? I am very disappointed in season 3. They changed who plays the queen, prince and Margaret. The actress that was Margaret is now the queen. An actor replaced Prince Philip. Margaret is being played by a Harry Potter actress. I read the writer plans to change actors every two seasons to show maturity. I feel he made a mistake. Makeup, etc could have been used to age the original actor/actresses. The show won awards because of the people that played the queen, prince and sister. This series isn't as good as previous two in my opinion.

Good Morning Dear Friends

It is a pleasant day in Ohio. Not sure what I will get into at home. I do have an appointment for a hair cut later in the day. That is always fun as my granddaughter does the cutting & I get to hear how her family is doing.

I guess the nasty winter bug has found its way to Ohio. I read on FB that a friend has been sick for several weeks. She went to her DR but got no help. She called his office few weeks later & they said you have to pretty much let it run its course. She finally went to ER. The DR there said she has Bronchitis & Upper Respiratory infection. She came home with antibiotic & inhaler & hopes that she will start to feel better soon. She is a few years younger than I am.

Stay well everyone.
