Hello All,

It’s been pretty nice most of all outside. The flowers are getting budded out, the flowering bushes and flowering trees so pretty. The leaves just seem to pop out so quick. It’s nice. Love this time of year. But the humidity always ruins it for me. Life goes on.

Get well to those that have been having bouts of the flu. Wearing masks so much for the kids has been hard and it seems like they are getting sick now. Be well soon.
