Hi, Patrick . What a terrific macro this is. Belated Congrats on the Gold Medal.
There are so many people (above) in the bp community who no longer comment or post. Then there are the dinosaurs like you and me. ;-)
About your note under the hydrangeas. I wish I could say I have more good days than bad, but the truth is, the past year has been very difficult to get through. Hospitals and nursing care/rehab ate up my summer,
and my staph infection left me with pain every day from the scars in my lower spine pressing on nerves. So that explains my lack of posting these days. Just sitting here writing you has put a ball of fire under me, so I'll close now, leaving you to whisper, "Thank God,she's finished!" But you asked!! :)
Hope everything is going well in your corner of the world. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
