Hey, Jean - Mary took the words right out of my mouth!! It really IS "great to see you on the site again"!! Where have you been?!! ;o) Phil and I trust that you have been, and are, well...as we are here!! :o)

Hey all my wonderful BP friends who have stopped by for this pic, it is GREAT to hear from YOU! My dear mother whom I was taking care of passed away last summer and I have been grieving (before and after) ever since. Just put the camera down practically for a few years as just too darn tired to pick it up! My new email or personal email is jpapo@comcast.net Love to catch up and hear how you all are doing.. Thanks for the kind words, Aphrodite is mine, I'm going through a second childhood, thus, pink, haha, and the afternoon lighting gave her a nice glow. Take care! Jean #5581762
