They have a Lovely...Feel about them....
It was a Long....day...and Night...last night...

I had no...Will....to get the Big Corner Cupboard
unloaded...
It...would have Kicked My Butt...All Over the Place....
This Evening...Liz and I went to Pal, Val's...
She is a Master Gardener...

Liz wants to do...some Gardening...this year....

You are blessed! I would love to live next door to her & have someone to help me with my gardening issues not to mention being able to stare at her house.
