Have a safe and fun day wherever you are.

  2. It is nice to see someone actually enjoying the snow. Here, even our kids that love to sled and slide are tired of it. AND it is so cold that it has taken the fun out of it here. We finally got above zero today and now they are saying heavy snow again tomorrow. I wanna go South----waaaaah.....xo Diana
