Re: Chat chat

Got back last night from four days in Maryland visiting family and  
celebrating DH's birthday with crab, crab, and more crab. I think we  
ate it almost every day! Spent a day at Hershey Park with the  
grandkids... exhausting. Now off today for the State Master Gardener  
Conference. No wonder my garden is full of weeds.
I've done that cruise, Auralie, way back when we were stationed at  
West Point, in the mid '70s. Lovely location.
