Re: [MOL] Deb



June,
We could try: Pleasantville, any one of the five towns, heck why not
come to New Jersey! We would love to have you. Just think we could "do
lunch".
Sorry to enlighten you but being realistic means that you will be living
in Holtsville at this time next year in the same home that you are in
now, doing the same things that you are doing now. You know what I mean:
laundry, washing floors, windows etc.
Smile, Debby
