Good afternoon Troopers ... ..

We're getting back to MORE Florida Like, Winter weather, finally.

We also, are having Medical issues in the family. Eldest Sister-in-law had a mild Stroke, is now in ReHab and doing much better. At the same time, her husband has a tumor on his liver (left lobe) that will have to  be cut out, after they try to get the right lobe to grow larger first.. Anyhow, all this is keeping us running from one end of town to the other and back.

I do hope that everyone is doing well, so far, this year.

Toujours Pret!
