Hi ______,

Glad to hear you are okay and having a nice time in Europe with J.  I am doing fine.  I recently purchased a huge amount of carpet from a company that went out of business - enough carpet to cover 3 or 4 football fields.  It was at an auction and a bargain price. P is coming over on Thursday for a visit.  My 45th high school reunion is this weekend, but I am not attending. After the shock of a buddy of mine getting a sex change operation and coming out at the last reunion, I decided not to attend this one.  We are looking for a new puppy to keep Sol company.  I told you that Cosmo had cancer and we could not save him.  We went to see a golden retriever puppy last week. 

Be careful over there.
