~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember the last time December had 5 Saturdays very well. thumbsup

You didn't know I was that old did you? wink

I have a time machine remember? grin

I really only care that December has at least 5 days in it.

My birthday is the 5th one. lol

I'm doing a few lines and then posting it, a few more lines and posting. lol

I hate computers!

There must be a better way to get to the internet. duh

After all, if all computers disappeared, or even more realistically, if they all quit working at once, would the internet stop existing?? duh

Gotta post now. slapforehead

TV should have an internet network. thumbsup

Gameboomers could be on Channel 9. penguin

That would make us all TV reality stars.

I shall ponder this as I lament my internet connectivity problems.

Have a happy day everyboomie.

Haroula, please send us some of your sun. We're not going to see it for awhile.

Cailyn, Stay safe. Thanks for the coffee.

Gerry, stay safe also. Loosing power is my biggest concern also.
