E-MAIL from JOHN BARRETT...You can take me off the prayer list at Rotary and add ELIZABETH, she is well, only tired of being Florence Nightingale. I am walking on crutches, the pain is gone, the staples are out, and I expect to be at Rotary next Tuesday. The “plant” was great, that’s two. The geranium that was sent to LIZ is the size of a small tree. It is planted in my Grandmother’s old steel washpot out on the porch. It is nice to have friends. Thanks! JOHN.
