Today is Andy's Birthday! Whoot!
You just knew it was a holiday weekend without looking at the calendar. How? The neighbors. Sunday evening. Perfect weather. Not too hot, not too cool.

The true name for this post should be "Pissed Off". A couple of things are bugging me right now and I'm here to get them off my chest… 'cause, you know, I can. (In no particular order.) I promise to stop when I run out of fingers… for now. Nicole had a nice rant the other […]
