Just kidding -

In explanation - When I first signed on to this board & the Countryside board - I didn't know what it was all about, so didn't use my name - just my initials. Now, everytime I post, that 'hmm' automatically comes up - Since I've been here a little while now, when I remember (that's the hard part - remembering!) I type in 'Heather' instead of 'hmm' -

It's Heather Meeker Metheny - that's my name.

THANKS - I'm glad to be here ;)
