18 on the 18th…Happy Birthday to my Son

Gathering of the Readers: Book Club

November 17th, 2014 (No Comments)

This weekend was a welcome break from a stressful week, I was looking forward to a low key weekend, if there is even such a thing in my world. Halloween started out wet, and I’m not talking about the much needed rain we got, there is a leak in my garage that had flooded one […]
