Sounds as if there's been joy and some sadness. I'm glad that everything has leveled out for you and that all is well.<quoted text>Hello BLong, good to 'see' you! What I've been is busy! Started off with a grandchild's arrival, the holidays, a funeral, a blizzard a wedding, flooding, and critical and acute medical emergencies with a couple of immediate family members, but I am well because of/in spite of it all now.
How have you been over there?
Things have been okay. I just wish that things would pick up a bit more here, where I work. Makes me a bit jittery about a job that I've had now for 35 years, that is by no means secure.
Have a good evening.
Always a pleasure 'hearing' from you, Pais.
