Congrats on your gold star for the virtual walk! And you were listed first! Safe travels on the road today. I'm headed to the funeral this morning and going to Earth Fare with Mom after taking Andrew to class.

I'm so happy your bp is normal now. I'm hoping to drop bp meds too one of these days. And thank you for the prayers for Tolly. I was with her the day she died. She appeared to be sleeping, but I don't know now. I prayed my rosary, blessed her with her holy water and left because she wouldn't want people hovering.

Funnily enough my very best friend ,we have been friends since kindergarten is 5 foot. We were chatting on the phone the other day and it dawned on us we had been friends for 52 years .Holly says now that I am in a wheel chair she is finally a bit taller than me !

I was just teasing between Al's sister and Jean though you qualify as one of the tall people ! Al's sister likes to say she is 5 ft but that would only be after we had put her on the rack and stretched her and Jean has given up all pretense she just says every short person needs a tall friend and vice versa and don't mess with either of us !
