Congratulations, Maura! I'm truly happy you received this recognition, but I'm even happier that you joined the forum. I'm sure we all have some posters that we gravitate toward and your postings are ones that I always think, "Oh, good! There's one from Maura. Let me check that out right away!!" I enjoy your pictures, your commentary, your wit, your strength....YOU!
p.s. My mother's a Maniac, too. Sure, she calls herself a Mainer, but we kids thought Maniac sounded more appropriate!
