Thanks for the good wishes for John. We're in the recovery room and I can tell the doctor's promise of pain will be accurate! So many friends and relatives having surgery this week and next. Hoping for a good outcome for all.

Tomorrow John has hernia surgery. Wish us luck! Last surgery he had (appendix) turned into a nine-day hospital stay. Hoping by this time tomorrow we're both home and resting comfortably! (His doctor warned him repeatedly "there will be pain!")
For those of you with farmhouse sinks . . . .where do you put the dishes you wash? I have a double sink and would miss having the drainer in the sink. I suppose you have to put the drainer on the counter? :(
All too familiar.
