I really missed BYC, I had only been able to get on to check messages for a few minutes in the last week or so. For those of you who did not know, I left to go see my Son/Baby of to Afganistan :-( THANK YOU to those of you that sent emails it was very thoughtful of you. We had a really noce visit and had some fun. talking/joking and lots of laughing. I am very proud of the Young Man he has become. I will worry about him constantly but will try not to let it affect things here with my girls. He has orders for 14 months but is hoping it will be droped to 12. I have a lot of things to do around here to get cought up on things but should be ready to converse with you all on Monday. Your Chicken Friend Melanie Who is now crying just from writeing this.. MY BABY WITH HIS FIRST BORN - Taken a few days ago. I did not expect it to snow in Kentucky.
