What a Great Day!

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Wow!

You’d have thought it was my birthday or something!

Today was one the best days!

I started out to work, but after my arrival was notified that I could take the day off. Not too bad so far, eh?

Then, I went to a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts shop, ordered a dozen glazed on the half shell with coffee, and read the newspaper, checked in on FaceBook, and swapped messages with friends locally and abroad.

Then, I went to the …Continue…
