Not sure!...I paid for the original Tapatalk, and the upgrade says Tapatalk is now a free app. I looked in the app store & it says it's version 2.0. The latest version, that it was overdue for an upgrade. So confused!!

Maybe...it says in the description that it's only upgrading the original Tapatalk users. So, you probably have the latest version already =)

Pain in the you know what!! Haha!! In all seriousness, I figured it out pretty quickly, because it was driving me nuts not to talk to you guys. I hate re-learning things, too.

I don't know if I will work that Sunday or not. It's after my weekend to work and usually I have the Sunday night off, after my weekend to work. Hopefully I will be here. We'll see!

It's their annual convention, so it will be a rather big parade. They'll like that.

I hope you all have a great day and ate enjoying the weekend so far. I know I am. Talk do you later on. God Bless and keep smiling!
Hope you guys had a great time!!

Stay cool, friend!!

Hope your foot feels better!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! The heat is officially back here with a high of 84 today. Ugh!!!! I really hoped the fall like weather would stick around. I need to take my niece's home soon and then I need to clean up the mess they made. Then it will be time for Nascar and football. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!
