<Greeting or Salutation>
Hello. How are you? We are doing well. Steve and I really enjoyed your
stay with us at our house this summer. We had fun canoeing, fishing,
biking, and golfing. We have been doing a lot of golfing since you left. I
am still working on beating Steve at the game. Maybe someday Iíll get him!
I hope you are finding some time to golf too. Steve and I have added a
bunch of plants to our flower and vegetable gardens. We even put in two
new plum trees and another apple tree. We have been watering the new
plants a lot. Our dog Tia wants to know what you have been doing since you
got back home? She doesnít say it, but I think Tia misses you. We hope you
will be able to come back and see us again next summer.
