      Great! Hope we can make it happen. Where's Risk's back yard,
      by the way? He's not in Florida, is he?

      Dave- I actually spent about 8 weeks total in Sarasota last
      year. My parents have been living there. Mom had cancer
      surgery last summer, so I stayed about 6 weeks and one of my
      sisers took over as I left. (It was really convenient that
      we both work in schools and this came up in the summer.) I
      spent the holiday break there, as well, helping get set up
      to move. If I get back before they leave the area, I'll
      give you a shout. Thanks.

      (BTW, they are on a waiting list for a retirement community
      nearly in Risk's back yard.)
