Still working long and hard, night and day to finish up by Monday noon. Why does she need to finish by Monday noon you ask? Because Frank, Willie and I are leaving for Salisbury, Md. to see my Mom. She'll be 87 years old on January 31st. Her name is Ruth Bromhall and she is happy and healthy an very feisty! Then we'll leave from Philadelphia at 6AM on Thursday with Frank's Mom and sister Amy for Aruba. Frank and I will stay there for a month and my oh my are we looking forward to it. So I'll report when we get back on our adventures. Aruba is a wonderful place and WARM. A note to Lynn in Va., you can order soap from our website anytime darlin. To Emma Lovejoy , it was so good to hear from you and know you miss Ocracoke. Emma is the daughter of friend Karen Lovejoy and Dave Frum and our foreign exchange student from Ocracoke to Denmark this year. To the person who offered a prayer for my son and his family, many thanks. So.....adios, adieu, see ya later.........when I'm tanned and rested. Wahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
