I have a date though.....for the Truxton tour....problem is everyone is scattered here there and every where...but hey life doesn't stop after summer and fall is certainly a spooky time...but still would prefer to get this in SOON....girls come on ...
  • Road Trip the Scenic Route...ditto above...but it's still a MUST
  • Pirate Fest: Our summer backyard bash is a Pirate Fest...it's July 19th...wow that's next weekend...guess I best get busy!!! I do have a little pirate decor and well...the rest will fall in to place....ummm...I hope...and let's pray for NO RAIN!! Once again I'm flying by the seat of my pants...
