I do hope Midge the days are not so hot now. & you must all try to cheer up Grandma who has spent so much of her life working for & cheering up others. & Maggie too. Tell Mary Im sorry the mining craze has so blocked up travel so that I could not make arrangements in time for an excursion for her. But she must just come another year when everything clears.
