    Karen--Right now they have me schedule for 3 weeks, twice a week. I wish I could go in the water, but it hasn't been a year yet, and Medicare will not pay.

    Thanks so much for your comment today! How cool about the Waltons! I know the Afton area fairly well as I've been through there numerous times. Very beautiful. Was your family in Louisa affected by the big earthquake a few years ago? I was at church (work) when it happened and I knew immediately what it was. We could hardly believe it was so far away because it was pretty strong and loud where we were! We could only imagine what it was like at the epicenter.
