Hello friends

My dear friends, I have been absent from the forum for quite a while, have had some health problems to work on,   beginning to get them sorted out now and taken care of.    I have missed all of you and it will take some time to read back  through and catch up on things. Had all my teeth pulled and it will be several months before I get my new choppers, my choice, then it will be on to Phoenix  and Mayo for some heart surgery, have to regain some weight first, I didin't want any of you "old timers"  to think I had gone to the "happy hunting grounds' just yet, I am still kicking ,  one of Leslee's daughters had a daughter and named her  Leslee Ann, How proud Les would be.    I will be taking a balloon and some artificial roses out to Les on Valentines Day. and if the weather is decent March 7th her garden will be dedicated that day, the new building is almost reardy to move into, planting will begin as soon as we can. Maybe some of you remember that we had a flood  that took out most of our downtown and many blocks surrounding the area, the building that Les and I worked with was destroyed, will get some pics posted as the work progresses.  Marty

Good to see you back. Sorry about the teeth and the heart issue. Mayo's a good place to go as is Cleveland Clinic. There's also a wonderful place in Texas, can't think of the name of it right now. Hope the heart problem isn't too severe.

Great about naming the baby Leslee. It means a lot to a family.

Hope to hear more from you.

I remember the flooding! I will be anxious to hear about you and your healing and also how the garden is coming along.
Take care of yourself,
