Well, let's see...I could try to get Lornetta pregnant again...but I doubt
I'm up to that all winter without breaks.  I do enjoy cold, and Chicago
ain't for sissies!  I loathe and detest Florida, but Lornetta just got back
from France and would move there in a moment!  (She was supposed to be on a
retreat with a bunch of Dominican nuns, but at my age I don't inquire into
these things too closely.)

Will take your suggestions under advisement.
