I just wanted to check in and say thanks for the birthday greetings. 7-7-07 sure was lucky for me, and the start of a wonderful year I hope. I have been working at the Community College for a couple of days and lurking and checking in to see how you all are doing. I was sorry to hear that Pagan got turned down by SSI and happy that Mere is about to leave for England, and glad to see that Pete hasn't been Disneyed like he was last summer. Great to see photos by Joe, and comments from you all. I have been having fun camping, going to the beach, going to Reno to play cheap blackjack, hanging around the garden and walking Freddy. My midge cure worked, and my roses look great. I miss you all.
