PENDANA - SOLD

ADIOS!  Funny how life changes on a dime!  One minute you are in control and have a pretty good understanding of where one is headed and the next, BAM! Everything changes. A little while ago Claire and I received an unsolicited offer for Pendana.  After much discussion with Claire and the girls we decided to accept the offer on the basis that it complete quickly.
