We had a ton of wind and rain yesterday, power out for several hours - but I'm happy to report that everything is safe and secure here at Forgotten Bookmarks headquarters. We were lucky, and as I am catching up on the news this morning, I see that many places were not. Just a few miles down the road in the Catskills, places like Margaretville, Fleischmanns and Roxbury NY are still battling the water. Further north, places close to my heart, Bennington and Brattleboro have been hit hard.

They are all in my thoughts this morning.

Dear Folks,

Glad you had such a good time while you were here. Looked for you up yesterday. Certificate didn't come. Grotto initiation this Fri. Have been to two funerals in one week. All are well.
