Re: Spring Sprung

Noreen - congrats on your new addition - guinea pigs are too cute. Would
love to see pics of your yard, any chance of sending some to Marge to
post on the tour site??

P.S. we dodged the bullet this weekend - no storms here despite being
under a tornado watch all weekend. Darnedest thing I've ever seen, they
went all around us!

thank God!
