    Hey, VJ, stay out of Harvey’s way. Argh, a bad pun and a rhyme, sorry…but the sentiment is sincere. :)

      Thanks, Cece. We’re not sure yet when this particular area is supposed to get hit. Right now they are saying this storm is gonna be around till next Tuesday (!!) but I will try to post something every day and if I don’t, that means the power is out.

        VJ, you are a trooper. You & your family are in my family’s prayers. Hope Hurricane Harvey fizzles out or at least calms down.
