Hey, I am sorry, I hope all is well with you, Dig this....the other night at our chapter meeting they voted me as FOOL of the year and one of the perks is I am sponsered to attend the convention. So I talked to the wife and it looks like we will be heading that way. I am very excited.
Hows life? Been fishing at all
I know you've been in touch with the others, so I have stressed to much about calling. Mainly because the phone is ringing so much I can't hardly get a call out myself. I will call you tonight if I can. Thanks for being there.
Slow cold night out at St 3. Figuring I'm going to have to bring the quilting out here to pass the three months or spend every waking moment on the treadmill. Looking at the number of firehouse LODD, probably oughtta save the heart..they're dropping like flies. Take care, stay warm!
I had a great time in Alaska but I ended up with pneumonia, it's been a rough couple weeks. But I'm finally standing upright. Here is that list of books you asked for I hope you enjoy them. If you have any you would like to suggest to me please send them my way.
