  2. Heavenly…..we all feel sooooooooooo sorry for you being stuck out there in the middle of nowhere in the peace and quiet and beauty and incredible scenery and dogs, cats, horses, snow, etc. It’s a rotten job but someone has to do it !! Sam wants me to mail him there in a postage-paid box ASAP! LOL
