I thought you should know that yet another person has received the calendar so that you can add me to the delivery statistics to calm the fears or frustration of others -- the US postal system does deliver! Cheers, Rosemary

Quote: Dear "Men", Hi you devils, what a neat thing to do. How many beers did it take? Sent one to my friend who has seen male stippers, can't wait for her phone call. You made this Old Ladies day, on oxygen, 24 hrs. a day since 1995. Saw you on TV. Like the sound of your town. Are the gals doing a calendar? That's what I heard. I like May, my hubby was a carpenter. God Bless...
