  2. Thanks for the recipe. I will try it when I can get around better.  Something happened to my left foot. I can’t stand on it without some very bad pain and even when not standing it it is painful. Don’t remember doing anything to sprain it so don’t know what it is. Maybe the nerves are shot in my foot.The feet are just to old Lol who knows.ON A HAPPIER NOTE. HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND BILL!Sent from my Sprint Samsung Galaxy S9.


  3. Thank you! how about that! First time I ever tried oatmeal! Delish! That Paula Deen! We are doing ok. Been thinking of you Margo alone there, (thankful for our pets!) ; hoping you too are ok and staying safe, well, and strong. Looking forward to your music Sat. !!


  4. This looks similar to my standard meatloaf recipe. Hope you are both well. Margo
