Hello All,

Here it is Friday again. It is raining as I try to type. Just had a major glitch as I had my screen colored, how I did that I do not know. Had to keep playing with all the buttons and trying to get it back to white, shutting off my laptop etc. I am good at messing up this thing. Thinking of all the people in Florida as they await the Hurrican Irma that is slowly bearing down on them. I have some friends and family in Florida myself. I am praying for their safety. Be safe to all in Florida !! We get rain here and I hear people grumbling it is raining, but this is nothing compared to a Hurricane or Tornado. Let's all think of our Southern people.
