  3. September is the best month! Yep...Me...I was born in September. My sons family take talk like a pirate day to a whole new level. The fly flags,they dress like pirates, shop like pirates, eat like pirates, scare the UPS man and the grandsons have even attended church wearing eyeliner. It's annual event that keeps growing. Have a wonderful September day!!!

  6. 'Morning Melinda. Amen to September 22, the first day of my favorite season!

    Thanks for not "abandoning" me during this end-of-summer funk...I plan to start reading/writing again. :) And I'm always happy to see your comments. A hug to you.

    And now, tally ho...the children await!

    PS--I hope you're feeling better! We grown-ups should be exempt from getting sick; we've already been through all that stuff.
