  1. CJ,
    You ladies have certainly had a trip! I can’t tell you how much we have enjoyed the pictures and accounts of your travels. Thank you all for sharing. We hope the trip home is also enjoyable. Please drop an email when you get home and are rested.

    We leave May 7th for Key West for a week or so. Our son and daughter-in-law are coming down from Memphis to join us for a week. Time for some sun, sand and fishing!

    Later, F
