  1. Hi Melissa! Thanks for the recent likes of my blog, hope you and Chuck are well. Kind regards


    • I’ve been enjoying the drawings, Paul, and I always enjoy your walking updates and photos. We are well and longing for another trip to the UK. BTW, last summer we went to Newfoundland. Breathtaking scenery. You and Elizabeth might enjoy it some day. Chuck sends his best.
