Ryan... good luck with your job app

Mgramsey, Enjoy the tour on saturday with Ethan.

Sugar..Why dont you get both that way you have a choice if needed

Snowflake...Hope the wee dog was catch and is safe. i wood have been worried to about it getting hit with a car. and i might of had a few picked words for the hubby. cant figure why it did not come for a treat maybe just cause it was scared or does not know what a treat is. Sometimes when a dog gets out it will run round the place for long enough.

As usual I loved catching up on the posts and reading about what everyone is up to.

I notice some of you can reply to multiple quotes in one post. Can anyone help me figure out how to do this?

Grey, humid and rainy here today. I can't believe we are almost in May!
Have a great day everyone.

Good morning! It is going to be much warmer here today than it was yesterday. It will be partly sunny with a high of 60 degrees. Nice weather to go walking with the dogs. I don't have too much planned for today. I have to make a quick trip to the supermarket for a few things and then back home for chores. My two oldest have work later today. I found someone that will repair the glass on my daughters Iphone and there is only about an hour wait. If she has time today I would like to go with her and get it over with. I hope everyone has a great day!!!

Wet morning here.
Only way I can type right now is to use tapatalk, so glad I have it!
My lap top likes the letter "k" and types it constantly!
Will pick up a better keyboard today after work.
This is reason I am not replying to posts right now, reading them all so I can keep up with the news!
