Thanks Lee & Buddy and Jim . . . .HUGS back at ya . . . .we are having a great time down south enjoying the Arizona sunshine while reading about our snow and cold back home. We are eternally grateful our PC journey has allowed us to do this and pray to stay healthy to continue to do this for many years.

This is our first winter trip to AZ and we are already planning to arrive earlier next year . . .like "honey let's try Christmas in Arizona" . . . . you know Christmas without snow! The next few months will decide that.

Take care all.
