Purple Rain..
Purple Rain..
Remember that song by Prince??

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain

Thanks everybody, your comments are very encouraging..

My daughter Kim Lund lives about 5 miles from me and their house was hit by a tornado, trees down everywhere, one fell on the roof..but thankfully they are safe...we are getting ready for another in the next hour...maybe delayed in comments for the rest of the day, probably will turn my computer off..
