    • Thank You very much for your kind words. Yes it has been many years. I have not forgotten you either. I also remember your dog, car, and your parents whom were very nice to me and was always trying to give me something to eat. I have good days and bad days. I have my grandkids a lot which helps. I have discovered I do not like eating by myself. I hope life has been good to you. I know nothing about where you’ve been or where you are living now.
      Take Care,
