    I'm late. I'm sorry. Life has been busy since I retired a week ago Friday.

    emoticon Laurel! I hope you had a fantastic day and I hope you are well.

    I did remember yesterday (How could I forget when it's the same as mine? emoticon ).

    Take care.

    Hope you are having a wonderful day.

    I have a sore back and it is in the kidney area so I am currently worried about that. I think it is a pulled muscle. I guess I need to check it out if it continues.

    I imagine I would worry with DH sleeping in too. We have to enjoy what time we have left As you said we can't dwell on the alternative or we won't enjoy the time we have.

    Take care my friend.
