  1. 1081-that is a HUGE tree
    1097-rice socks also a treatment for early abscesses/boils and pink eye
    1124-I’m sure you meant grape juice

    • 1097- Good to know, and then important not to get my “foot warming rice sock” and “abscess treating rice sock” mixed up.

      1124- cough, cough…is that not what I said?

  2. Beautiful.
    Wine is good for the soul…IMO.
    Thankful that Abby has a voice, a will, a mind, can express herself….:)
