In no time your boys will be working with you and Pam!! Thanks for the memories!!!

    • Hi Chris — Thanks so much for the comment. I was excited to come across you standing by the pier. I literally just pick a few volumes off my book shelf at the beginning of the month and then flip through them for our Revisited each week. I recognized you immediately. So glad you got to see it. Take care!
