Norte Dame is playing Oklahoma again this year in South Bend. That will be a good game although I pick the Fighting Irish.

No the person who was watching him told him he's too young to be sharing phone numbers, also he still doesn't know our phone number.

Can't wait to start listening to Christmas music. I start in October at some point, gradually adding it in and I just realized we are only a month out from that month!
I tried stuffing the ballot box with one of my favorites last year for the top 100, you know which one Seawaters, it didn't get in though.

The only thing it will affect is the decorating of my trees. It is always the weekend after Thanksgiving, everything else gets put up slowly starting after the Halloween decor comes down.
