I know, please forgive me - I was overcome last night when I saw that
pix you sent of your first bloom of the season. I'm not sure what
happened to me after that.

LORRAINE: I, too, have enabled Duane in his addiction by sending him
iris. :-) 

On a more serious note (as this is seriously O.T.): Enjoy your next

We'll both be tired come August. (And hopefully, back to normal sanity,
as I'm not sure we are right now).
