  14. Hi Mary
    Thanks so much for signing on at the new Back Porch. Unfortunately, just after you signed on I accidently deleted the Google Friend thing. Thank goodness there were only four there so far. Makes it easier to go around and apologize for the mixup. Hope you will stop by and give it one more try. I promise to be more careful!:-)
