Karen, I loved you post. So good to remember you as a energized, positive girl. Can't even imagine you as a LOL. I'm so sorry @your losses this year. My dear one left us in October. I sold our home...too big to be alone. I live in a Senior Apt and like it very much. I garden the courtyard with lg.pots of flowers and play Bridge too. Have my dog too, so good incentive to walk the neighborhood. Still see
my neighbors of years out for lunch. Yup! Socialization is necessary. I can't go to MN either. Next week kids are gathering at Beach house to memorialize "Honey, Dad, Papa". Take good care, Karen. Mary

How I love Rod's comment. That's why "BFF" as the kids say is beautiful.

My thoughts of sadness for Pat's close friends and family. Pat had a beautiful, warm spirit, beautiful smile and twinkling eyes. So glad we visited at the 60th reunion. Special thoughts and memories for you, Mary Ann, faithful friend.

Howell. Thanks so much for sharing the new St.L.Pk HS drone video. The school looks like a Corp Headquarters/Country Club/Resort with lockers! Really Beautiful!

Happy Birthday, Dick. What a time to be in the Public Health/medical profession. I'm sure your advice to others is still valuable. Teachers, Nurses, Doctors ...lifetime profession.

Barb, I hope you had a wonderful Birthday. You're such a "young chick." Speaking as your senior friend. Hope you can get your shot soon. I had my 1st 1/2 way to freedom! My best to you.xoxo
