I'm not writing much of a Report this week, tho there are a few things to Report. [wry grin] I just have too many other things going on today and tomorrow. Not the least of which is after several rainy daze, we had a very nice sunny day today. Requiring me to spend a couple of hours weeding, tilling and planting the garden, give a bass lesson, work on the bike, go for a ride, put up 3 screens, etc. I just hope your day was a good one...

Quotes From the Ledge:
This is a group of people I used to go walking with. (long pause) That's me on the left. (even longer pause) On the right is the woman I married, Audrey. (very long pause, speaker looks at shoes) Which just goes to show that danger lurks where you least expect it.
