  1. Love the pretenders and for some reason this got me also thinking about the Chrissie Hynde / UB40 Collab of “I got you babe” and now I’m listening to that 😁


  2. That reminds me: My sister’s birthday is on Friday. I’ll have to remember to call her. I didn’t send a card, but I rarely send cards to anyone.
