Hi Jo!
Thanks so much for your email! I'm new on the network and am looking to connect with some folks :) My son leaves for Parris Island in August and I thought that joining this wonderful group would be helpful...
Have you been a member long?
Take care and stay warm!

~  Hello Jo, & All of Your Loved Ones as Well

~  Here's Hoping that Y'all had a Merry Christmas :-)

~  Christmas Eve: we had a Nice ham dinner with our middle son & his young family; & we're still trying to co-ordinate with the rest of our brood, yet somehow, we'll all work something out with everyone's various schedule(s) {with Cathy having been a career Nurse, we Understand & are used to 'different' holiday flex-schedules}.  :-) 

~  Former Cpl. Jess had to work cyber-security all night Christmas Eve, not sure what was with his wife's schedule as a Nurse.  Our youngest son, Michael, is taking a long week-end Out of Town {away from the world' largest marketer}, in order to Make Sure that he gets a decent rest for a little bit, by being away from it all, {Ugh, the headaches from becoming a boss}.   ;-)

~  So far Today:  Cathy, Charlie, & I are just Enjoying an easy day, although that may be subject to change if'n I hear soon enough from our niece {it's only a 3 hour scenic drive to SE oHIo from here}.   Recently, I called her & left a message that we'd like to come visit either late Today, or possibly someday this coming week;  if'n she gets some time off from teaching others how to become more effective/better teachers.

~  Here's Cheers to Hoping that Y'all Have a Happy & Prosperous New Year ;-)

~  Respectfully Sincerely, Mike  ~

Praying Often , for Everyone, Everywhere, & for Every Need as Well  ~
