She has to get a good case after its fixed. She always has a cute girly one that is good for nothing!
I'll be back later, hope everyone has a great day!!!
We usually get our warranties through SquareTrade---they will cover that sort of damage, and often at a better price than the manufacturer's or retailer's coverage. I'm not a shill for them or anything, just a customer. If she has to get a new iPhone, you might look into their coverage. And, like you said, get a good case!

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

What a beautiful morning here in southeast Georgia! I think I feel a bass fishing trip coming on soon! Jacob and I went fishing in my Grandaddy's pond a couple weeks ago. I love that pond, but the gator is getting worrisome. He's started following the boat around, but he doesn't get too close. Just close enough to make you want to keep an eye on him LOL!

I'm going with the family on the Tuesday afternoon trip to take Jacob to guitar lessons, then on to Wal-Mart.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be a nice morning but there will be some storms moving in this afternoon. So I guess I won't be sitting out on the porch this evening. I have a few errands to run this morning and then it will be home to play on the computer while it rains. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, there have always been gators in the local ponds. They're generally liked, because they keep the turtle and beaver populations low. But when they start getting 5'-0" long and following the boat around, they get my attention.

Good Tuesday morning everyone. Woke to a nice 39 degrees this morning and expecting a high of 68. I wish it would stay this way through the summer.

Leaving work at 3:30 today to go to my son's high school baseball game. We only have 7 games left then the state tournament, if we qualify. We have have quite a few snow days to make up so school is now extended to May 30. I hate to see this school year end since he will be a senior next year.

Saturday we are visiting Gardner Webb University for "junior day". It is a 1/2 day of scheduled meetings and tours for high school juniors who are looking to attend the college. Ethan thinks that is where he wants to go and major in Journalism. It is a Christian university so we are happy about that but I'm sure I will have a lump in my throat all day just thinking about him leaving.

Have a blessed day everyone.

Good afternoon everyone. Finally getting a chance to check back into the countdown thread. I think I've missed so much I'm not sure I'll ever get back up to speed. Hope everyone is well and best wishes to all those who aren't.

Hello everyone. It's been crazy busy as yesterday I was at a conference. I'm sorry if I missed anything important here on MMC. Well, everything is important here as far as I'm concerned, but you all know what I mean.

Made-Awesome blog. It takes guts to share something like that and I respect you for it! I look forward to reading more.

I put in for a job today that I think I have decent shot at getting. It's with an agency I work with and am on good terms with their staff. It would allow me to do quite a bit of public speaking and writing and both of those are something I very much enjoy. I hope, if it's God's will, it works out!

Hope you all have a great Tuesday. I missed not being around here yesterday!!!
