    1. We are all well but very busy. Our June & July is shaping up to our home being a vacation destination!
      I know you understand that.

    1. I know you have been very patient with me. My last attempt at a blog was disasterous and I got hacked immediately.
      Scared me but finally had to get over it and start again! LOL

  2. Hi Sandy, I’m not local but do you have a catalog online that I could see? I’ve actually never bought any CTMH products but have heard nothing but good things about the products. I signed up in the side bar because the link in the blog entry didn’t work for me. I hope that was okay. The site looks really nice.
