Prodded by my brother, who is on Facebook, I finally took up Words with Friends, a variant of Scrabble.

Packing: Double Check Both Coming And Going

Courteous Dress Code In The Bank Line

Between A Competition And A Parade

Donning an elf cap, a special tee shirt, a name tag, and a jingle bell, I went out today and joined other participants on a 5 Kilometer charity walk. There was a run for people who really wanted to run, but I consider running hard on the joints (I would rather glide along in my cross country... Sign in to see full entry.
