It is hard to believe it has been almost a year since I last posted on this site. Much has happened this year. I retired in April and had two back surgeries, one on July 24th and one on November 6th. I went to see my daughter and grandchildren in October for Halloween and made it through Thanksgiving and I am now enjoying in pleasures of the holiday season. I have put up my decorations, done my Christmas shopping and I am now enjoying the festivities of the season.
