It's been quiet here.
I still am getting the dining room fixed: The doors are rusted at the bottom so that metal frame is being replaced. The spigot in the sink is dripping just a little, but I will replace it now rather than wait til it leaks all over the place.
Lolo is fairly good: He is strong enough to go outside in the late afternoon with me, either to sit in the garden or sitting outside our door to watch the traffic go by.
We got a Christmas card and letter from Dane, and a photo of him in uniform. He is US Navy now and studying at Virginia Beach. Dane looks like Lolo but thinks like his father, who is also USNavy: well organized. He should do well.
