Thank you for that update. Nikki, I hope you're okay after the fall. I'm glad you were laughing about it.That was a strange little snow storm, even extreme NW Florida had a taste of it. It took a huge dip south.

Brandon, loved the attire dude! And, your singing while doing your morning chores is a sign of contentment that, unfortunately, many in this world may never know. Sing on! However, the ducks may steal the center stage. Cute little duckies!
