What a year! Immediately after Spring Training, the world changed due to the Corona Virus Pandemic.

We didn't do many of the things or take any of the trips that we had planned but we didn't sit around and mope either.

Click on 2020 Home Page if you'd like to see some of what's been keeping us busy.

We've had a lot of fun and have a lot to be thankful for.
