I've been married 32 years, but it has taken 3 wives to get to that level!
The first two were not "Ham Understanding". Beverly, the third, and final YF
is understanding, does bring me meals and tries to accommodate me as much as
she can. She's a KEEPER. Congrates Jeff on having a secure and unselfish YF
like mine.

PS No Don, the kitchen at the farm house ain't done yet. But two more towers
are up!
