  1. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily. Happy US Father's Day to all Dads and Father Figures. I hope conditions for many African children are improving. Family Remittances recognizes migrant workers who send money back to their families in poor/developing countries. I'll pass on Chenin Blanc Day. Good quote. I'll pass on the meal (eggplant and loads of carbs). Yes to the Arnold Palmer, and pass on the Rosé. I have not been to Mumbai. A good day in history. It's warm and sunny, ramping up for the heat wave. Currently 85F. I've been doing a few things around the house. I will be staying in. I never celebrated Father's Day, having been adopted by a single woman. @Cruzin Terri I was sorry to read that you tested positive for Covid. I hope it runs a short course, and that Jim stays negative. @StLouisCruisers I'm sorry you have such a bad cough. Do you have some cough syrup to take? I agree with getting checked out if it's not getting better. Sorry about the ice up there interfering with getting to ports. @ottahand7 Nice photo of you, your sister and your Dad. @Quartzsite Cruiser That's a great photo of your Dad. Thanks for the Mumbai photos. @kazu Ivan is very handsome. @Haljo1935 That's a sweet drawing of you kids and Dad. @GTVCRUISER Thanks for sharing your Dad's photo. @USN59-79 Great photos of your Dad. @Cruising-along Lovely photo in a great setting. @smitty34877 Nice photo of your Dad. I hope you and the family are feeling back to your usual health now. @bennybear Thanks for sharing your favorite Dads. @rafinmd That's a keepsake photo. Thanks for your "Buddhist Trail" photos. Interesting about those chronic complainers; some people are never happy. Prayers for the Care List and a Toast to those Celebrating. To those in the heat - stay hydrated!

  3. Thanks Terri. Have you tried a decongestant? That might open your eustachian tube, which can close when you have a head cold and lead to decreased hearing. Although maybe not take anything if you have high blood pressure. @rafinmd You had quite the day yesterday. Besides the arm, I'm sure all the sedation has an effect too. Take it easy until you're back to your usual self. I hope the test results will be positive.
  4. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily. 3 good days to celebrate. Not sure I agree with the quote. I'll pass on the meal, drink and wine. I have been to Ketchikan, on my one and only Alaska cruise. 2 good days in history. It started off cool here, but is now 74F and sunny. It's the last decent day before we start to really heat up. No big plans for me today. Some tidying and reading/watching golf and swimming trials I think. @Himself Bon Voyage! @GTVCRUISER Thanks for the photos. @StLouisCruisers I'm sorry to hear your cold is more in your chest now. Take care of yourself. Good luck to Ren and his team! Lovely Ketchikan photos. @Denise T Thanks for sharing your photos. @kazu Enjoy your lobster dinner. @ottahand7 Nice photos. @0106 Happy 65th Anniversary to your parents! @Sir PMP Thanks for the map and the photo. @Cruzin Terri I'm so glad you are safely home. I'm sorry you still have your cold and that it has traveled to your chest. Try to rest and take care of yourself. @mamaofami Congrats to your grandchildren for their accomplishments. @marshhawk Great photos. @Quartzsite Cruiser Wonderful photos. Thanks. @ger_77 Happy Birthday to you son! The dinner with your Ukrainian friends sounds lovely. @RMLincoln Your plans for tomorrow sound nice. I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been sleeping well. Fingers crossed for your DH's eye pressures to stabilize in a good range. @sailingdutchy Great photos from the seaplane. @rafinmd Unique photos Roy. I hope your hand is better now. @Nickelpenny Good luck with the sourdough starter. I too started to bend and twist a bit earlier than I was told, out of necessity for helping BFF after his leg fracture. I did try to adhere to the not lifting more than 5 lbs, although I know I exceeded that a bit a couple of times. I have backaches when I stand too long, that are muscular, and know I need to strengthen my core muscles. I have the all clear now to go to PT and start next week. @Cruising-along Oh no on the moles in the yard! Very nice Ketchikan photos. @richwmn I'm glad they made it! @bennybear Yikes, bad news about that pipe. I hope they can be repaired as soon as possible. Thanks for sharing your photos today. @kochleffel Great photos, especially the bears. Prayers for the Care List and Cheers for those Celebrating.

  6. Good morning. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily @richwmn. I'm not a chop suey fan. I have been researching family history, since I found the name of my birth mother. My flag flies every day. Fun quote. The meal sounds good, mai tais were my drink in college, and maybe for the wine (I've had their red). I haven't been to Dravuni Island. It cloudy here, but warm (75F); scattered storms this afternoon, perhaps strong. We could use some rain, unlike those in FL. I'm waiting for the HVAC person to come; my window was 10-12. Well, he just called and he has an involved AC fix and because of the hot weather coming he wants to get that done. So now it's Monday for me (my issue isn't urgent). Otherwise no big plans today. My lab results from yesterday are rolling in. The routine ones all look good. My creatinine was a tad high, but I hadn't had more than a sip of water for 15 hours. I can't drink much if I'm going to be out and about. The eye doctor did recommend a sleep mask as I have dry eyes (using Restasis and night time ointment) and have a ceiling fan going in the bedroom at night. I know I can feel the dryness from the one down here in my media room. @Lady Hudson Bon Voyage! @rafinmd Happy Heavenly Birthday to your DB. Good luck with your tests today. @StLouisCruisers So sorry you have a cough now. Good idea to rest up in your cabin. @Quartzsite Cruiser I hope the trip to and from Dallas is easy, and the shunt adjustment for DH also goes well. @LambKnuckles Good luck with the sourdough journey. It requires patience. You'll read that a new starter can be ready to go after 7 days, but most feel 2 weeks is better. @Denise T Great that the conference and your presentation were both a success! @ottahand7 I hope your back won't bother you the rest of the summer. @kazu I've had many CT scans and MRI's; some in quite claustrophobic tubes; I've learned to zone out. I'm glad you got through it, and some people have to have a light sedative. I hope the vascular surgeon visit will solve your issues. @Cruzin Terri I'm glad you two made it to Jacksonville early this AM. Safe trip home and I hope your cold is gone soon. @smitty34877 I'm glad that everyone is feeling better at your house. @marshhawk Enjoy the extra time. I hope Andrew lets you work more hours. I'm glad Scottie is doing better. @durangoscots I'm sure you're glad the renovations are almost done. Prayers for the Care List and a Toast to those Celebrating.

  8. Good evening. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily. No axe throwing for me, never heard of Doe B, and I'm pretty good in the kitchen, with the occasional klutzy moment. Interesting quote. I'll pass on the meal, drink and wine. I was in Zeebrugge on my TA last year, and long ago on a land trip. A good day in history. It's hot here, currently 86F and sunny. Whew, I'm tired. Up this morning and drove to BFF's. Got him in to his PCP's office (pushing a wheelchair over a ramp with those bumps was almost comical). Then back to his place. I then did an errand returning something. Then off to the hospital lab for bloodwork (I was still fasting at 1:30PM), then seeing my eye doctor. It's quite the walk from the parking lot to the office, so I went slowly and used my cane. Thankfully my eyes looked good, despite being off the injectable med for 6 weeks. I knew I was heading home near rush hour (it seems to go from 1PM to 7PM!). Traffic was awful and I thought there must be an accident. Nope. Almost 1-1/2 hours to get home (it's a 20 minute drive with no traffic). I'm just now breaking my fast. @StLouisCruisers Sorry to hear you're feeling blah today. Excellent photos from Brugge. @0106 Thanks for your Zeebrugge photos. @Mr. Boston I hope your physical was uneventful. @LambKnuckles I've had trouble getting my sourdough bread sour enough. I find leaving it a good while in the fridge (12-18 hours) after shaping helps. My recent bread, made from starter that had languished in the fridge unfed for a while and was then rejuvenated, is nicely sour. @Mtn2Sea Lovely photos. @dfish I'm glad you got a date for the nerve ablation procedure. @grapau27 Thanks for the photos and the day explanation. @smitty34877 I'm glad to hear that the ladies are much better, but sorry to hear that now the men are affected. I hope they're feeling better quickly. @Overhead Fred Lovely peonies and the family connection is so nice. @Quartzsite Cruiser Nice photos from Brussels, Zeebrugge and Ghent. @marshhawk I hope the washing machine situation is all fixed. And are you ok after your fall? Sorry your appointments got delayed. @rafinmd Prayers that all goes well with your procedures tomorrow. Thanks for the maps today. @ger_77 I'm glad DH did well at cardiac rehab. I can understand the difficulty if the heart rate won't rise with activity. I was once on high dose beta blockers and experienced the same thing. I hope his cardiologist can fix the issue (maybe some reprogramming of the pacemaker?). Not a fun job - I have 2 built-in cabinets that have all my glassware, and I can see the dust inside; one day I'll clean it all. @luvteaching Good for DS for continuing his education. And you are fortunate he is able to do so many jobs around the house. @Vict0riann Good news that Pat is safely home. You've got a lot going on, and also your upcoming surgery. Get some rest. @kazu I hope the CT scan gives some guidance for treatment for you. @Cruzin Terri Fingers crossed all goes well. But you are prepared and the 5* service was a great idea. @sailingdutchy Great photos Tony. @1ANGELCAT Sorry you're losing your Nephrologist. I hope the new one is a good fit. @bennybear Sorry to hear about the injured workers. I hope work can resume soon. Prayers for the Care List and Cheers for those Celebrating.

  10. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily. I've never had Cachaca or Falafel. Loving Day celebrates an important event in history. Good quote. I like the meal. I like Americano coffee, pass on the drink. Pass on the white wine. I haven't been to Santo Domingo. A bad day for Capone. It's another lovely day, currently 80F and sunny, with low humidity. I had trouble falling asleep last night, I'm not sure why. Then I was up and dressed, packed the groceries for BFF, and took them to his house. Then off to his post-op check. Things are healing well, and he got changed from a splint to a walking boot, but still 3 more weeks of non-weightbearing. At least he can take it off to sleep and to shower. Then back to his house, where a friend brought over pizza and we all had a good chat. Now I'm home, and tired. I need a nap, but won't as it might affect tonight's sleep. Tomorrow I take him to see his PCP. @catmando Happy Birthday! Prayers for Scottie's recovery. @ottahand7 Sorry the urgent care couldn't do more for you. @smitty34877 I'm glad Tana, her sister and you are feeling better today; sorry illness got to several of you. @Cruzin Terri I'm sorry your cold is worse. Maybe take a decongestant for the flight? Safe trip home to you and Jim. @mamaofami Congrats to the 3 graduates and prayers for safety for the two in Israel. @dfish Thanks for the recipes. I'm glad you got a date for your nerve ablation. @aliaschief Wonderful upcoming cruises you are planning. @bennybear I'm glad water is flowing, even if there are strict restrictions. Scary about the tornado nearby. I hope you get the FCD fiasco straightened out. @1ANGELCAT So hard on Shirl's family; she won't understand they're doing what's best for her. @durangoscots It sounds like you're having a lot of nice work done on the condo. @rafinmd I'm sorry they're making it difficult for the upcoming tests. It's good that your driver is flexible. @kazu I hope today was a better day for you. Prayers for the Care List and Cheers for those Celebrating.

  12. Good afternoon. Thanks for the FR/Daily @richwmn, and to the F&B contributors. It's a beautiful day to get outdoors here today. I hope to make life beautiful. I've never had the crowded nest situation. A sadly true quote. Yes to the muffins and drink! I'll pass on the wine. I've been to Alaska, but not Kodiak. A good day in history for the about to be US and the UK. It's lovely out today, 70F and sunny currently, with low humidity. It was in the 40's this morning. I had pushed back my haircut due to not knowing how I'd be after surgery; It seemed so long to me, but when you have short hair you have to get it cut regularly. Usually I could go in the back door of my salon, right across the alley behind my house. But my stylist moved a few doors down when the salon closed (after 37 years). So I decided to slowly walk around the block, using my cane. I made it, and my guy said the stairs behind the new place are treacherous, even for him. So I'll continue to use the front. My head feels lighter! Then I went to pick up the remaining groceries for BFF. He has his first post-op visit tomorrow; unfortunately I'll be taking him at the height of rush hour. I'll go early to take in and put away the groceries, then we'll head out. A mutual friend will bring pizza to his house in the afternoon. @Vict0riann Thinking of you today. I hope you come out with a good plan for treatment. @MISTER 67 Stay safe with all that rain. I hope your power stays on, and that your golf slump is short-lived. @grapau27 Thanks for the explanation of crowded nest. @StLouisCruisers Nice Kodiak photos. @ottahand7 I hadn't heard about those stabbings; terrible. I hope the Urgent Care can help give you some relief. @Mr. Boston Woohoo on the sale of the condo moving along and your new home! @dfish I've made that first recipe (I'm a big skinnytaste fan). @Haljo1935 Happy Birthday to your sister! I hope all goes well with the PCP and the eye procedure. Your work seems to make it difficult to get medical time off. @aliaschief Lots on your plate to do now that you're home. The luggage forward sounds like a great thing when you have many bags. @Quartzsite Cruiser Wow, 14 visits to Kodiak. Thanks for all your wonderful photos. @Seasick Sailor I hope your wound is coming along. @Lady Hudson I hope your DH's doctor visits go well, so that you can go on your cruise. @kazu Take as many breaks as you need. So sorry to hear about your friend's post surgical blood clot; I hope he's ok as they treat it. @smitty34877 Oh no on Tana's stomach bug. I hope she recovers quickly and that no one else gets sick. Prayers for you all. @marshhawk Hugs to you as you deal with DH's difficult issues. @ger_77 You are such an empathetic person; so no surprise that your friends are so comfortable dropping in. @Overhead Fred Enjoy your time at the Canada cottage. @summer slope Good news about your Derm check. @luvteaching Good luck with getting the insurance reimbursement. @kochleffel Sorry about the frightening dream. I hope you're feeling better now. @USN59-79 Yikes on that biker colliding with a bear! Prayers for the Care List and a Toast to those Celebrating.

  14. Good morning. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily. I use ball point pens all the time. I try to do good things for others, maybe not miracles. I like iced tea, particularly peach iced tea. Funny quote, although I've been watching less tv and reading more. Pass on the meal, maybe to the drink and I can't afford the wine. I haven't been to Valletta. 2 good days in history. It's going to only go into the 60's today, but sunny. 47 tomorrow morning! I'm baking my sourdough loaves while it's cool, since the oven has to be quite hot. I'm also going to call PT to get set up. Then this afternoon I need to get gas and maybe do some of BFF's grocery shopping, if I feel up to it. @StLouisCruisers That sounds like a fairly productive meeting with the relatives. Excellent Malta photos. @1ANGELCAT Enjoy Longwood gardens. @Denise T Happy Birthday! Sorry I missed putting you on the list, since I knew it was today. @smitty34877 I'm glad the young people had fun at the parade and got home safely. Continued prayers for Tana and you. @shippmates Welcome to the Daily! @marshhawk Ugh on the hoses not being long enough for the new appliances, and them not taking away the old ones. I hope DH's immunotherapy goes well today, as well as the meeting with the doctor. I'm glad your schedule will be easier for a while. @aliaschief I'm glad you and Sue made it home safely. @Quartzsite Cruiser Great photos. @kazu Hoping you have less pain today. Prayers for the Care List and Cheers for those Celebrating.

  16. Good morning. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily @richwmn and to all contributors. 3 good days. Funny quote. The meal sounds good, yes to Irish coffee and the wine. I haven't been to Montego Bay. I had hoped to go to Jamaica with a good friend from college who was from there, to avoid the touristy and unsafe areas; sadly it never happened and he passed away a few years ago. It's sunny and going up to 74F today and not too humid. A lovely day. I made my sourdough bread dough last night. It's to set out and do a bulk fermentation for about 12 hours. Since my house is warm, and also I wouldn't get to it in 12 hours, I used a bit less starter and colder water to retard it a bit. It had nicely risen when I came downstairs this AM, so it's now divided into two and in the fridge in bannetons. I'm not sure if I'll bake it this evening or tomorrow morning. I need to do some grocery shopping, mainly for BFF. I may do some this afternoon (Aldi) and finish tomorrow. @StLouisCruisers I'll be curious what you do regarding the relatives. @grapau27 Thanks for the link. I hope you and Pauline have a good day. @kazu Hugs. I do understand how long term pain and not being able to do things can put one in a funk; been there, done that. BFF doesn't have pain, but is down because he can't do things. I pray that an answer is found to help you. I hope you can stay in your house; I too for a while wondered if I could stay in my 3 story house. @Cruzin Terri I hope today is quiet for you two, and that you can sit on the beach reading. @smitty34877 Prayers that the teenager and his GF will be fine. I've gotten so I don't like big crowds anymore. I hope Tana is having an ok day. @ger_77 How is Maurice feeling? @GTVCRUISER Cool photos. @Cruising-along That is just awful about the spray painted racist symbol on the erratic. Prayers for the Care List and a Toast to those Celebrating.

  18. Sourdough starter is fed. I won't make the dough until later, as it has to sit overnight and it's warm in my house. @St Pete Cruiser Very nice views. @Cruzin Terri Terri, I'm so sad that this trip has been so stressful and not relaxing. I'm glad Jim wasn't hurt worse. Prayers that things start to go better for you two. @Seasick Sailor Oh no on B's fall and broken humerus. Prayers for her. @grapau27 Condolences on the loss of your friend's DW.
  19. Good afternoon. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily. Best Friends are a blessing. Brain Tumors are scary, but most more treatable these days. Caribbean American awareness day highlights some disparity in healthcare access. Not sure I agree with the quote. Pass on the meal (fish), yes to the drink and wine. I haven't been to Kiritimati. One sad day (Mantle) and one awful day in history. Great news about the recue of 4 hostages from Gaza. It's more sunny here today, warming up after a cool start, and a low chance of rain for a change. I guess maybe the multiple doses of Benadryl caught up to me. I went to bed around midnight, woke up to post the Cares List, then fell back asleep until 10AM! So a late start to the day. I'm not sure of plans, but I'd like to start a sourdough bread dough (maybe). These days my knee is a limiting factor, as well as some old low back pain that had disappeared with PT. I will call on Monday to set up PT again, although next week is booked with taking BFF to appointments, and a haircut (thank goodness) and eye appointment for me, and someone coming to look at the radiator situation in the LR. @StLouisCruisers Oh my, I hope your cruise doesn't end up having drama! Sorry DH got a rubbery lobster last night; not right, especially if you're paying extra. Thanks for the link about the USS Liberty. @ottahand7 I'm sorry you had a bad night. I hope your DB does well in rehab and has a good outcome this time. @grapau27 Although so sad, how wonderful that Sarah's best friend's DH and 2 others with brain tumors raised all that money for brain tumor research. @Cruzin Terri Sorry to hear of the troubles with wifi, your TV and phone. Having to move rooms is a pain, but especially if not on the ground floor. I hope DH gets a good report at the medical clinic, although it seems soon for him to be able to go in the water (just my 2 cents). I hope your vacation improves. @smitty34877 Sorry you don't have any extra help this weekend. Prayers for a safe trip into the city for the teenager and his GF. @aliaschief Safe travels home tomorrow. @dfish Your cake yesterday was impressive looking. @marshhawk Sorry about DH's credit card fraud. @Haljo1935 Blood tests can help some, if your calcium or uric acid levels are elevated. A urinalysis can look for crystals. And then examination of a stone. Dietary change recommendations would be different depending on the type of stone. There are nephrologists who specialize in kidney stone treatment and prevention. @Seasick Sailor Sorry to hear of DH's medical issues, especially the weight loss. That's a lot of weight he lost. Prayers he can at least maintain, if not gain. @RMLincoln I'm watching the French Open and will tune in to the Stanley Cup finals starting tonight. I pay $350 for tax filing from my CPA and think that's high! I've been with him 20+years and think it was $150 when I started out. Nice that your DGD and her DH are coming tomorrow. @Quartzsite Cruiser Nice photos from Kiritimati. @Mr. Boston Welcome home! @bennybear Being without a source of water for that long sure does make you think how good we have it, compared to those countries where clean water is a luxury. Lovely wildflower photos. @Vict0riann Great news on your appointment with the surgeon being moved up. Your flowers are beautiful. @kazu I hope you're not in too much pain. Prayers for the Care List and Cheers for those Celebrating.

  22. Good morning. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily @richwmn and to all contributors. I still have one working DVR and need to copy some tapes to DVD. Caring and Food Safety are both important things we need daily. And it's National Donut Day! Good quote. Maybe for the meal, pass on the drink (basil) and wine. Kings Wharf was the first stop on my TA last year, my first time in Bermuda. A good day in history. It's windy here, but at least not raining for now. Yesterday I was sort of a couch potato, mainly reading. I took my RA shot earlier in the day, as I was afraid after being off it for so long, I might have a bigger reaction. I get hives at the injection site, but no generalized reaction, but didn't want to be asleep if something developed. I took 50mg of benadryl, which had me nodding off in the evening. At bedtime I took another 50mg. Despite that I had a small itchy hive on my leg this morning. I'm trying Claritin this AM so I won't be so sleepy, and will take benadryl before bed. No great plans for today; maybe just tidying up. I started feeding my sourdough starter again, and may make some bread tomorrow, for the first time in almost a year. I've been thinking that we haven't heard from @cruzn single in a long time. It looks like she hasn't posted since November. @StLouisCruisers I hope you can make some progress on your cross stitch project. @Haljo1935 I'm glad you got the bad pain checked out. So, it was kidney stones? They can be really painful as they pass. I recall grown men weeping in the ER from the pain. Did they give you a strainer to catch the stones, so they can be analyzed for type? @aliaschief Hard to believe your great cruise is ending. Thanks for taking us along with your photos. @marshhawk Prayers for strength for you as you deal with everything. I'm glad the behavioral specialist called this morning, and could see what the issues are. @ottahand7 I'm glad your back is feeling better; the prednisone must be helping. @cunnorl I was holding my breath until Starliner got those thrusters back online. Congrats on the new car! Always fun (except for the payments). @Seasick Sailor Good news that your ankle is feeling better. @Nickelpenny Oh no on ripping up a tire yesterday! @sailingdutchy Thanks for the great photos. @bennybear What an awful situation with the water. I've not heard of pipes that big. I hope it's fixed soon. @kazu I hope you have less pain today. Prayers for the Care List and Cheers for those Celebrating.

  24. Good morning. Thanks for the Fleet Report/Daily. An important day of Remembrance and the sacrifices made, D-Day. I'll salute creative educators. Gardening certainly can be exercise. Drive-in movies were fun; few exist now. Strange quote. I wouldn't mind a fritata, but with different add-ins. Pass on the drink and yes to the wine. I suppose I've been through Tracy Arm Inlet. A highly important day in history. I just finished watching Masters of the Air last night, appropriately, about airmen in WW2. From my TA last year and visit to La Havre/Normandy. It's cloudy, warm and humid here today. Yesterday I did go to BFF's with supplies, then to my Neurosurgeon. She was very happy that I'm pain free. The incision is healing well. I can start to increase my activity as tolerated, and don't have to go back unless there's an issue. I did get a script for PT. I'm also going to slowly start decreasing my Gabapentin. So a good report! Today I'm battling my GMail - I use the website, and all buttons have disappeared from the top. I can't delete anything. I turned off the VPN, adblocker, cleared the cache, and nothing helps. I can on my phone, but I primarily use online. Ugh. @StLouisCruisers Thanks for the Tracy Arm photos. I need to revisit Alaska; I've only been once. @kazu Great sentiments and words. @Haljo1935 Sorry the knee injection hurt; I've had many and they weren't like that. I hope it and the PT does the trick. @0106 I'm glad you're ok. I was thinking of my friends who live in Gaithersburg. @ottahand7 I'm glad your back is feeling better. I hope the TENS unit helps; I got one when I was having all the leg pain. @Cruzin Terri Good that DH is getting rest, and I hope his leg is feeling better. @marshhawk I'm glad the new doctor has some ideas to treat DH. It's always good being at a teaching hospital, as they are usually up on newer techniques and treatments. And I'm glad you told them to call on your home phone, so you're in the loop. @aliaschief That looks like a great thing to do. @rafinmd I'm glad you were safe from the tornadoes. @kochleffel Nice photos. @Seasick Sailor I'm glad you went to the clinic first thing this morning. I hope it starts to improve now; do they want you back to see how it's going? @Quartzsite Cruiser Thank you for the photos from near Omaha Beach. And the Tracy Arm ones too. @Heartgrove I appreciate you sharing the memorabilia from your father's participation on D-Day. That's very special and I'm sure you were proud of him. @Overhead Fred Safe trip to the cabin. Very sad about your neighbor's daughter. Nice garden photos. Prayers for the Care List and a Toast to those Celebrating.
