Family is fine - had an email from the Wisconsin G'daughter - they were out of school for two days due to the bitter cold. Tracy is enjoying warmer temps than we are but did say it was cooler there than usual. Nate called to see if we were alright (and we were) but he really wanted Tracy's phone number - he keeps losing it! I called Mark to see if he was alright and he said he was trying to stay warm. Nate's work hours have been cut back and Mark said the plant has cut back, but his hours haven't changed. Mark also said the new Honda plant in town is shutting down four days this month. Chet is still here, too - doing alright. He isn't back from church yet - his buddy lost his wife the 1st of the year and poor Chet was just as upset as the buddy was. This gal was not able to do anything for months.
Time to sign off for today - lunch time and Chet will be home soon - licking his lips and sniffing around for food!
Till next time - - take care
