I Love a Parade

So I was in Williamston on Friday night. It was their homecoming night. I didn’t go for the parade or anything – I was just lucky. I love marching band music.

Yard Sales, eBay and Other Scary Stuff

I’m going to spare you the Lily update pictures. I will just tell you that I have less than 45 stitches to decrease before I can finish the final corner and graft and be finished. I hope that will be taking place later this week. I have a yard sale to prepare for. I need some little tags and I […]
