Hello from steamy hot South Florida. Got up to 87 today. Like summer in Michigan. It is hard to believe there is so much snow up there right now. My citrus trees are in full bloom right now as is my star jasmine and I can smell the sweetness coming in through my open windows. Got a cold front coming tomorrow and our high will then drop down to 79 for the day high then back into the 80's on Wednesday.

I have finally finished all my special contract work and have about finished a stocking for another new arrival into my family. Grandson number ten came into this world on the 7th of this month at 8 pounds 13 ounces. He was eleven days early. Here is a photo of him with this email. Gage Kogan Schmidtke.

Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
