Hi Marie, How are you. I hope you enjoy the picnic. I seems like you have had a lot of fun this summer with things surrounding the fair. I would like to go to Maine sometime. It sounds like a beautiful place.
It sounds like Reed has resolved some of his issues below from his latest email. I am glad that Russ is doing better and Reed got good news from the doctor about his PSA level.
I enjoy the cooler fall weather although it is barely here. At least we don't need to worry about air conditioning any longer.
I hope you have a nice weekend. Thanks for the updates on what is going on with you. Ellen

Besides, I'm going to need all these people to walk me through it when I have a grumpy teenager on my hands instead of a sweet natured 7 year old ;)

AW, shucks. Just trying to give back what I got when Eric was little. Soothing the panic!

Hi Marie-I see that you just got back from a vacation. You really deserve one. I hope you were able to chill out. We are just about settled in the new place. We do like it here. It is nice to have everything on one level. Jim likes that it is near our old development.
We have lots of friends there and our house is just 2 miles from the new place. I hope to have more time to visit TuD now that we are settled. I still do go to PT 2x a week to help with my balance and walking. They have a fitness room here and I hope to check it out.
Soon it will be time to start up Marie's Bakery. I hope you have a great season of baking. Have a nice weekend. Cat
