    Hi DS! It is a beautiful spring day where I find myself! I certainly WANT to... "PULL UP THE WINDOW AND THROW OPEN THE SASH. Alas, whoever wrote that, CLEARLY, did not have allergies! Praying everyone is doing well... and in strong resolve for the reason we are all still hanging together... however loosely. I, for one, still "believe". If you are reading this, (plus others) I assume you do as well. Have a wonderful day, my friends! 🤔Hmmm, Did I post this in the correct spot? Things look a bit different from my end. Today is Tues., Mar. 28, 2017. I ask, because it is showing at the end of the posts on "block" 3... I think. Usually, I see any post I make at the top. See no place for new posts to display at top... and no dates for the actual day posted. Serves me right! Guess I've been so sporadic in posting that I have forgotten how this works! Help! Lol!
