Dear Jan, Gray hair looks so distinguished on men that I often dated older men when I was only 18. Love the chocolates, too. So you are living on an island off the coast of England? Wow, you could easily make that trip to Pompeii. If you go to Easter Island, please take me with you!!! Congratulations on your big win, Jan. Love, Carolyn

Jan, I am sorry you are bummed out today and I want you to know what an awesome poet I think you are. Just came to tell you that before I go home from work. I lost time to catch up here today because my mouse would not let me click on the boxes here for about an hour. I have reached Mauricio, so just ignore what i asked you to do for me in an email. Luv ya. Andrea
