We are all abuzz at the AAA mediations in New Orleans,Mike!!! Nelsie came in with 'Arthur' and while we all took turns holding him ( including all the GUYS!!) we talked about you and your journey to Grace-land. ( A little Elvis humor there) Cannot wait to meet Miss Gracie in person. Blessings and Godspeed.
