She also tipped me off that the main part of the Christmas stuff should be arriving by the beginning of October with some misc items trickling in before that
I was just looking at that collection in a catalog that I received, she will love them. An early Happy Birthday to her!

here is another picture



please pray with me Louanne...and if he crosses the rainbow bridge...would You hold him in Your arms?
I am sending up prayers for the baby hedgehog. He is precious.

Good evening!
I am going to turn in a little early tonight. I am so tired and could use an extra hour or two of sleep. The girls are all home. My oldest has her boyfriend over, my middle one has a few of her friends here in the back yard, and my youngest is doing some summer reading. She has a couple of books that she needs to finish reading before she goes back to school. My husband is working on the floors anyway and he said he would keep an eye on everyone for me.
I hope everyone is well, had a great day and enjoys their evening!
Goodnight MMC!

Does this refer to the human "turkeys," the frozen turkeys, or (I suspect) both? I'm glad you have a vacay to look forward to in a few days.
I was talking about people, bosses, rude customers, and so on.
