    I apologize for missing this meet-up. My son had an accident at about 3am so I was up kinda late.

      Hi ladies, thank you for your concern. He had gone out with a few friends and on the way home the guy who was driving lost control of the car and ended up tipped sideways off the road. Fortunately no one was seriously injured, just bumps and bruises.
