Friday, October 04, 2019      20 comments

No kidding, I love shrimp. I enjoyed yesterday's lunch without pigging out. In fact, later in the day I told a friend how it went and what satisfied me. He said, "wow, in the past, that would've been the appetizer for you." Don't you just lo... Read more

National Coffee Day

Not sure if that is the best humorous quote to use on this site. (smiling) Have a good day, SP friends. p.s. I'm adding a pic of the skeleton hair clips. I DO have teeth even though my smile looks like I don't. Took at an angle. N... Read more
