    Happy to oblige, Nancy. :-) Glad you are taking a sewing break to join us today!

    I really like the Davidson's eggs at LF. They are pasteurized and have no hormones. I'm hormonal enough already...just ask my family. ;-)

  • Nancy Feb 7, 2013

    Bless you Faye! I just realized I need eggs and there you go, setting me up at Lowe's! WooHoo :)
