Hi Lydia, this is Tanya. I just wanna wish everybody a Merry Christmas and have a blessed and a happy New Year and thanks for all of the help on ordering a telescopic cane that you know I'm very excited about that and I will let everyone know how I like and yeah as soon as I figure out how to get back on this list meaning I put your guy's list address under something in my address book and I can't figure out which spot to look under. So as soon as I figure that out I'll be back on the list.
