    Thank you,
    Mr. Moore

    1. It will probably get in if you mail early in the morn,if you don't think that will work we should have enough for you three.

  4. We went to 94 Roberson School Road this morning, and there was nobody there. No cars or anything. Did it get cancelled because of weather? Nothing on the site here.

    1. I jut found out myself as I am still recovering elsewhere. The was upposed to be someone there until 12:30

    2. Thanks and Thursday I told them to buy the large Potty at Walmart and I would pay them back but they didn't, so I could not have done more than go back but still wasn't doing well and Susan told the women that she lived 5 miles away and to call her if she needed to go but they didn't. Tar River doesn't rent them anymore. If I had only been there I could have let them inside.


    3. Cousin John sent all the checks back and just want to make sure that everyone received theirs. Thanks.

  5. Thanks. I will watch for it. Hope you are doing better.

    1. Thank you and I finally got 6/7 hours of sleep last night which helped quite a bit as I had 3 1/2 the night before.
