I am a little bit distracted and keep misplacing my wallet and my book of parking coupons for hospital etc. My son gets a kick out of that. So please forgive any typos as I am on the run as they say. Things are improving and I am making plans for the rehab center hopefully in a few days.

Have a pleasant evening.
