Sorry for the delay in responding everyone. New internet provider/email program so I've had to update ALL my online memberships, transfer email files and notify everyone about the change..a time consuming task, but not unpleasant.

HI June Marie! Isn't it finally about time we've had a break in that cold snap?? Was tired of the daily challenges this weather caused (though I prefer cold snaps to heat waves any day!)...the extra home fuel, the 1/2 hr car pre-starts, the extra bundling up....am glad we're getting a break!
Many thanks for be so sweet ....I appreciate very much that you take time to comment. Happy shooting!

Hello there, Sweetums!

Thanks so much!! Good grief...I need to have a connection to summer however I get it!!...it is one brutal winter! Brrr... I, for one, AM SICK OF IT! Cabin fever for sure at my end! Hope you are well and enjoying your shooting days! Thanks so much for the smile! #61723

Donna R. Moratelli

Hi Delores,Cabin fever on this end too. I just had the flu but am well now, I hope!! Not much out there in -4 degree wind chills. Horrible winter,I agree, but you always come up with something perfect and positive! Keep up the GREAT WORK! #61745

Dolores Neilson

Thank you, Donna! I'm sorry you were ill, but tis the season! Fortunately, none of us have been afflicted with as much as a cold so we can count our lucky stars. I insist on frequent hand washing at my house and hopefully, it reduced our chances of getting sick. My daughter is so tired of me asking her if she washed her hands after school! The invariable "Yes....Mmmmmooooom" with the simultaneous roll of the eyes! #61757
