  1. This post is a delightful discovery today! Can’t wait for the reveal. (will be pondering all day)
    Handbells do seem to go with the season (we played every opposing team’s school song during football season half time….on the field….with the girls drum and bugle drill team not the band….yes football in TX is different.)
    Thanks for the fun (not turning the TV/media on today…prefer to laugh at real jokes not jokers)


  2. I love your headliners and I can’t wait for the unveiling!!!!!
    Like Doggy’s Style, I’ll keep refreshing too! πŸ™‚
    Meantime… happy Wednesday, Frank!
    PS. yes, they are itching for either the ambidextrous artist, or the other one with the piano and paint.


  3. Can’t say that I recognize a single blogger from that list, however I hope you’re enjoying your Wednesday Frank. It’s a cold, rainy, one in San Antonio today, which means I love it!


  4. When I talked to my mom today – she told me that she turned the heat on already today. It was a bday gift to herself.
    It’s a bit chilly here. I’m trying to hold off till the end of the month. We’ll see.

    Already preppin’ for the holidays I see. Boy – that time will be here in no time!
