Well, hi there everybody! We've been so busy since we got back from Connecticut that I haven't been able to get on here to update. Lorie hasn't been feeling very well -- lots of pain in back, neck, and migraines, been spending a lot of time lying down. We finally got a doctor down here, so she's able to get some medications to help, we can't believe the cost of some of the prescriptions -- can't wait until we qualify for Medicare. We've even considered going to Canada. Now we understand why some people without insurance have to decide between food or medication. But that is a whole other issue ... When up to it, we have been decorating the house for Christmas, and doing our shopping & shipping! Celebration is looking quite festive, in all her holiday glory. It is "snowing" downtown every day at 6:00pm, 7:00pm, 8:00pm and 9:00pm. The kids are having a ball -- lots of tourists too. We've been visiting with our neighbors and sharing in the holiday celebrations. We miss all of you and wish we could be there for the Christmas, but the airfare was ridiculous, and it is WAY too cold up there!!
Hope you all are well and you have a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy new year!!!
