Thank you, Tom for being the first to leave such a thoughtful comment, there’s a lot of truth there. Thank you for your kind sentiments, as well, things are getting back to normal. My family and myself were sick with the flu during the month of March and my 92 year old Dad was hospitalized for 3 weeks due to flu complications. He’s home now, back to his usual spunky self - thank God! I hope all is well with you, my friend. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan
