Thanks everyone. It was a good day, most of the children called and talked to me. Jack is giving me a Brinkman Smoker/Grill/Cooker. I put it on layaway at WalMart and we'll get it out this weekend or next week. I had one for years but someone doing cleanup around the garage a few years ago decided it didn't look useable anymore and pitched it. A new one will be very welcome.
My sister made a beautiful fabric purse for me. She is so creative and an excellent seamstress.
