Today is my final day down here in Florida.
I leave for Greenville tomorrow, to start making preparations to work from
I don’t know when I’m supposed to get the new computer, but I plan on
calling Division of Services for the Blind Monday morning to get them to
bring by the loaner.
It looks like I’ll be working from 10:30 to 19:00, but I’m going to see if,

with, or for the cards I have been unexpectedly dealt, however you want to
view it.
