Just made 39 years we are living in Holiday Pines as well and even tho we knew you that long our paths rarely crossed. Except for the time you found our Yorkie, Oliver, in your yard and you returned him to us asking,
Are you Mr Dawe? We said no. But what you really said was,
Are you missing a dog? !!!! Yes! Thats our dog jumping up and down on the front seat of your truck!!!! Yipes! Thats what I said... are you missing a dog? Lol That could have ended badly! Thank goodness it didnt. Thank you Bob!
