Hi Thomas....wow...I'm really behind the times. Our White Tank Park Arts & Crafts Fair is over...next is a presentation I'm giving on March 9th at the same Park...then our community's Arts & Crafts Fair March 23rd.....who knew retirement would be so much work!
Congratulations on this Finalist...I loved it before and still love it. Will eventually catch up on January's photos....All the very best.... #10585905

Thomas E. Hinds level-deluxe 2/26/2013 6:33:13 PM

Patricia: So nice to hear from you and thank you for commenting! Being busy is a great thing. Being too busy is not so much. Now that you're retired I bet you are regulating your busy ways in right amounts! Keep having fun! #10587312
