Um . . . sorry I'm a tad late in wishing you well for the new year. Whatever.
Hope all is well with y'all. Not much happening here, which, in the big scheme of things, is a good thing.

I have been having a good time working on my favorite pass time, which is writing kids' stories. I got
500 PAIRS OF GREEN PANTS and SHOES-DAY TUESDAY finally finished. I have found that I like to give my work really strange titles (or rather, they seem to name themselves). Whatever.
Hey, went to the oncologist last Wednesday, and things are going swell. No, problems, nothing looking worrisome or out of the ordinary, so it is all good.
We are almost to the finish line concerning our bridge business. Yup, we are closing the doors and officially retiring.

Jenna and I have watched that movie together several times and we like to quote from it. ie: 'I love ya more than my luggage!' or 'You are a sick ticket!'.
My daughter has also often referred to my hairdo as 'a white football helmet' (in the movie, Shelby's description of her mother's hair was a brown football helmet). Whatever.
NOTE: Special condolences to my dear sis-in-law, Jill, on the passing of her wonderful mother, May.
Also, a big HEY to bro-in-law Ray-Ray who came through knee replacement surgery like a
Keep warm and keep busy. Talk to ya later.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
