    Michele, I wish you could've been there, too. Next year!Paula, PJ and Rula – so great to meet all three of you!And, Kathy, I'm with Lois. Cute poem, but …Hey Kathleen!

  9. Paula R says:

    Great pics here, Helen.Kathleen's poem isn't so bad…it's just the last line that is out of rhyme, maybe she could try the following line so that you can rhyme with place…"where you fill it with beauty and grace."(something like that, maybe?) Think about it.Peace and love,Paula R.
