That's very kind of you!!

I do have Halloween & Christmas backgrounds & screensavers, even some other holiday ones I use. I just don't have a desktop countdown per say.

My favorites are from American Greetings!!

Good morning! Happy Pines Day!! Not much going on around here today. It's going to be a hot one! And strong storms later they say! A guy from our town here is a storm chaser - he has posted on his FB page today that we could possibly have 100 MPH winds! WHAT??? I hope he's wrong!!! They are saying the worst of the storms are supposed to come overnight! Ugh!! I better go & be safe at the pines - I'll sleep in the slide!!! HA!

Have a great day everyone!
Stay safe tonight, my friend!!

This afternoon has been a little quiet around MMC, and I think it is because Made and Snowflake haven't been on! Kind of suspecious that those two have been absent on the same day at the same time, isn't it? Wondering if they weren't galavanting around town together, getting into crazy situations and shenanigans and ended up in some sort of trouble of the legal sort. That sounds like Made and Snowflake, that's for sure!

I always have my computer on so I can check in quickly from time to time. TTYL
Have a safe trip!!

You and me both!

July is a big month for us as we have my daughter's birthday on the 3rd (she missed being an Independence Day baby by two hours and fiteen minutes), then the 4th is always fun. My anniversary is in mid-July and my birthday is at the end.

So, really, August is the month for me that just drags on and on.
