That is when the black hutch seems a bit too bold.....to me at least!
Thank you Kathryn!

Dinahsoar, I hear you on the house prices! Good luck finding something.... Debbie V my shower curtain came from Urban Outfitters Online about three years ago. They have some cool stuff f you poke around their site! Brenda yes, to each his own, and as for me and my house, we shall lean in towards science and the "better safe than sorry" approach. We have had three different friends in end up in the hospital with Covid. One of them was in for over a month and almost died. (She is younger than me!)Two of the three still have long term problems with memory, and strength. We have had 2 family members of friends die from Covid. Your family is very blessed to have experienced such mild cases. Thanks to all of you for taking the time to read my blog and for elaving a comment! Tracey
