Thanks, Leanne, you should taste the homemade stuff; now that's good!!

Sorry, Colleen, but this one is sour! They make the best jams and jellies though! Thank you!

Looking for the pineapple next, Allan! And then will surround it with other fruity goodies!!! Thanks again!

To my buddies at GG, Patricia, Joyce and Paul, you're all special and I greatly appreciate your graciousness!
