    Hello Debby,

    Thanks for the comment on my page. Yes, we have had about the same time for our last year of being survivors!! Its not just us going thru this its our whole family and sometimes its harder on our children then we think!! Love you page. I have been doing gardening also. This year I planted Blue Iris's, A rainbow of colors of Tulips, and then yellow daffodil. Will be pretty to see them all this next spring. Love fuchsias also!! Talk again soon!! Dotty
