Such a day!!

We drove down to meet with Jeff and Jan and look at the house they have purchased.  I think they have done well.   We all are pleased.   The house needs work in the area they want to work - the yard.   They can create what they desire and they have a view, and a beautiful kitchen which is a must for they who so love to cook.   We are thrilled.   I see my grandchildren being born in this house, and there is a room for us when we visit.   It is quite the day!!

I was just sent this and I love it.   Enjoy!!
