Just a few words of appreciation for all the kind comments I've received since joining the Soup in early August! They make my day every day! First thing on my mind when I wake each morning is excitement and anticipation for another day with all my friends here! You are all VERY VERY SPECIAL to this old geezer! To all, love and happy thoughts! Jack
