    Oops, Shirley, I am going to have to bow out of our meeting on Thursday, with much regret. My daughter in Fairhope has issued a desperate plea for me to sit with my teen grands this coming weekend beginning Thursday, and I feel compelled to go. I will be sorry to miss the camaraderie, the tasty food and seeing your latest upgrade. Hugs to all, Bonnie
