  1. Fair play to you Andre. This is hard work with very long days but am glad I didn’t miss the opportunity. Don’t forget to feed the cat.!!

  2. Ross just checked your blog Andre and I am so thrilled he did! What a fun adventure Rose, Ann, Mary and Patricia are having. Happy 60th to Ann! I love you girls.
