  1. Wow! Y’all have been busy! Sounds like a good, fun, productive kind of busy, though. I was starting to wonder what was up with all of my fellow bloggers… it was getting a little Twilight-Zoney. I’m glad you’re back!

    You are having good kinds of busy-ness. Dump run? If there’s room, we may have something…

    And happy birthday to Bethany, nice job at the concert (what a day!) and congratulations on commencing ….will see you all Tuesday – maybe we can sit in the same section and cheer.

    Just reading about 8.2 tons of rock has made my legs muscles and back convulse in pain. Now I am ruined for the day. Must find Icy Hot and pain reliever – fast!
