Thank you, Patsy for the questions tonight.
We have stayed in out of the cold today.
Hope you both are feeling well and that you rest well and stay warm.
Have you been reading a lot this week?

Ugh, I'm terrible with Geography. I missed them all. I knew the circumstances of the event but can never remember where it happens. Thanks for making me pay attention to all the details. ~:)
