We will not be able to post for a couple days for this morning around 3:30 am. the house next to ours was leveled by fire and we will need a few days to get our home repaired from the experience. After two years of regular posting, this will be our first down time. We will be back at it in a couple days. Keep well and please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
