My sister, older than me, will have a lumpectomy for breast cancer next Tuesday. Hope all goes well and this will be the only necessary treatment. She's in Israel.

The rain has stopped. Now we're having sunny morning changing to puffy white clouds then full overcast back to broken clouds. Clearing at night and cold for this time of year. It was not quite 4 degre ...

Slim, heretofore - I use the snipping tool. Then just right click and tap "copy" the snip. Move cursor to my Downsizer reply box and tap "paste". Only this time it didn't want to cooperate. No matter.
