   Hello all! How was the weekend? I am happy to report that I'm finally feeling better. Still have a few very faint symptoms, but the aches, pain, and the urge to stay on the couch is gone! Now I have to play catch up. Just wanted to let everyone know that Black Fox has a new website! Check it out and let me know what you think. We're still tweaking it, but Pam, Quita and I are very excited. Hope everyone is finding a little time to submit their work. Hopefully, you can find something on my list.
