Ten on Tuesday

Sonic Time! Best Iced Tea!

As it was a long weekend, today’s topic is Ten things I did over the Weekend. 1) Finished my run of knitted dishcloths.  They are easy and don’t require a lot of brainpower. 2) Read a lot.

Pretty much sums it up.

But you can’t make him drink” “Up to my eyeballs in alligators.” ” I don’t have a dog in this fight”. “If you don’t behave, I’m going to snatch you bald headed!”  I realize that these sayings might be unfamiliar to those of y’all from ‘up North’, but I can’t tell you how many times [...]
