last three weeks. Feel free
to enjoy and pass the gift along
to those who create in you 'a song'

Boy, you've got Christmas on the brain... *snicker snicker*

I love how snowy it is at your blog... wondering if you'd share your secret?

I'm a little worried: In response to "chafing," you said serving dish. I said crotch.

I think I'll go make a pot of tea now.

Hey,ARI_1965,I thought of that one but did not post it.
