My daughter called also, said she was lovin it, she loved the PT also. She now knows where her Dad started putting salt and pepper on everything(he is retired army), in her words the food sucks LOL. But besides that she sounded really upbeat and she also said she didn't think she was going to take the leave, cause she didn't want to go in the hole. So we may be in Pensacola for Christmas lol. Of course I was at the hairdressers with dye in my hair, but you know I was taking that call LOL.
My son called on Saturday but I mised the call. My phone had shut off and I didn't realize it. I was so upset but I did get to hear his message he left on voicemail which was good. I took care of the phone problem with a new phone - less costly than replacing battery. He told me to keep the letters coming.
