For Word Lovers Everywhere

(Hi Pat, Glad to hear from you! Hope YOU make it back safely! Sue)

Hi Sue,

Thought you might be able to use thisl

So far I have had a very uneventful trip, excluding driving 95 in Georgia. That road has got be the worst in the country. I will probably have to replace my windshield when I get home.

Had a great visit with the Edwards Family in Burgaw, NC. Burgaw reminds me very much of Mayberry, USA, Then on to Bueaufort, South Carolina. It has been about 39 years since I lived there. It really is beautiful. The antebellum homes on the bay have been refurbished and tourism has increased. The Marine Corps Air Station is still there and busier than ever, but it does not dominate the economy as it once did. I have a few post card pictures to show when I get home. Next stop....Sunrise, Florida. Sun Rise is not laid back like other places in Florida. The drivers are wild and remind me of New York City. Turns out most of the people living in the area have retired from New York. My friend Glenda has a small condo in the area. This is a large complex and units are now selling for $28,000. They have lost half of their value.

I was very glad to hear about Glen. Doug needs therapy. I saw his last picture.

Happy hour calls. Will be in touch.
