Boy- I not only missed a tornado on my vacation, I missed slander
Sorry Tracey about a rude comment- but for all those new members out
there it's nothing like it was last year- remember KIRBY! ooo- I
shouldn't say that too loud! So let's be gracious from all the
contributions and if you don't like the topic in the subject line
use your brain and just delete. Now tracey did you like the multi
culture web sites I sent? just curious.
P.S.- I like the hobby horse- because I'm visual it's easier to see
that aspect and when I read those lines I saw you riding/bouncing
whatever- but what's the deal with the scarf??
