Nancy, this is a beautiful job. In our new digs here in Florida, we have spoonbills just outside often, so this is particularly appealing to me. Beautiful work with this. After many months of getting all of the move accomplished and very spotty time to catch up at BP, I finally think I too may be able to get back to normal soon.
