Note from Joyce:

I am in Mexico to sell a house I hate to sell. Sometimes prudence sucks.
And I have a fever I'm having checked out today. I did not miss our time together for those reasons. Time differences throw me. I missed the meeting.

Coming from food retail, I would not miss a meeting. Food retailers show up.
