You doing ok? Feeling a little stressed here. Booked at the Navy Lodge for 66.00 a night for two nights. His PIR form letter says that he ships out the next day for out of state A school. Yet I have read that if its on a holiday, like July 4th, sometimes they are allowed extra time. Not knowing for sure, is stressful. Sent out 3 letters today and 3 yesterday..this catches up the letter writing. No one else wants to write. And no one else can afford the trip. I am not paying for everyone. Lord. Let me know how u are holding up. Becky
Don't feel bad. Been online for ten years and still feel like a fish outta water. Glad to have your friendship. HUGS. I am treasuring Derricksbox. I had not intended to open it, but instead forward it to A school, however my daughter found it opened it raided it for his phone,and his ear buds. The most important thing to me was the address. I just came home from the post office and sent 1 letter and 2 cards. They are numbered and letter number 2 goes out tomorrow. lol. There are already six letters written. About two pages each. Love ya and write me with your latest whenever!~ Becky
