    Happy New Year….like you said….maybe this is the year we meet in person.
    While cleaning drawers upstairs today, I found a scrap piece of paper from Nic…..with your name and address on it. He slipped that to me right after he met you….that’s the day we chatted on the phone til we were disconnected.

    Small World…so glad our paths crossed.
