It feels great to be officially back from vacation. I got a decent amount of practice in amongst all the resting and relaxing…My husband had me practicing to old episodes of Perry Mason during our vacation. It was great practice too. I guess I know what DVD box set I’m getting for Christmas as a stocking-stuffer. Lol.
