Hello! New Year, new things going on.

We discussed how I was feeling and things to do in this month to improve my health...ha,ha. Spent a little time chatting with Walter. Worked on my Short Story and my novel. Talked to Tom to arrange a meeting...our "first" date so to say. He has called me several times and now it's time to meet. He's 71 years old. Lives in Columbus Grove, Oh. and is a retired truck driver. He's 6'1", says he has red hair and blue eyes. I'd bet his hair used to be red and is probably gray.

Heather cooked a birthday meal for Kent which consisted of steak, baked potato, and brussel sprouts. She filled the house with smoke and we all had coughing fits. Doors were opened and fans turned on to clear the smoke out. The meal was tasty.
