OFFICE HOURS on FRIDAY
I am having some work done at my home that was supposed to be completed when I was off last Friday. Then it was moved to Monday...and then moved again to Wednesday... and now it is Friday again!
I will be in the office tomorrow, but my hours may not be the norm. If you call the office early please leave a message and I'll get back to you. You can also email me at the office or at home. My home email is: barblh@neo.rr.com. I'll check it frequently.

Thanks for understanding,
Barb
