Hi Mary,

I hope the package is there, or Friday. I hope nothing got broken.

That was fun! I read them backwards...I don't know why...I think I just couldn't wait to see what you were saying about yourself by then.

I love to color too. When the kids were young and would get a coloring book and crayons I got my own set. Loved it!

You sound like someone that would be relaxing to be around and a very loyal friend.
