Greetings from Fort Myers. [View all]

Just got my services up today n I sure have missed you, my Friends! Ian was the most horrific storm I have ever been in n I’ve been thru a few. I am safe n no damage to speak of, thankfully, but feel like a refugee, at times, b/c I’ve taken so many things for granted. Our water still needs boiled where I am but I HAVE water..some don’t. Some don’t have anything at all. Take good care of those you love is all I can say..Mother Nature can slap ya around some 🌺
