At the moment?

Half Asleep! :))) ...And trying to stay warm. It is 0*f right now at my home in Canada. WAY below 32*f, and snowing. To be even 5 feet away from the window feels VERY cold! I have resorted to wearing a SHAWL in my OLD-COLD age! HA!

HOPE YOU ARE WELL???!!! :D -Laura #9201602

Merna, this is just wonderful. Many, many belated congrats on such a terrific finalist, it should have been a winner! It is in my book. Sorry I have not been able to catch up recently, the work for the Navy (even as a contractor) is never done. I ALWAYS value your comments on my work and that of others. Thanks for all you do! #9326954

Merna L. Nobile 3/31/2011 1:19:06 PM

Hi Gary: I received the macro lens as a gift and I really enjoy what it allows me to do.
Gary, I sent you another message today about my granddaughter, I thought you might be interested in something else.
My 17 year old grandson, Dylan won the Nationals last July and was given 15,000.00 dollars by the Italian team and we are going to Paris to watch him race against the best in the world in June. He also has a website (it is not up to date) that I put together with my photos and other photos through the years. He has been practicing at Fontana before he goes to France. We are very excited!
