I DID send you a warning -- did you get your 'mergency supply of chewies and stuff stashed in case you can't get to the chewies store?

(whose mama is now turning the living room into costume central complete with extra sewing machines, rolling racks, ironing boards and steamers -- whatever the heck THOSE are!) Seems it is once again time for the ice skating show.

Rocky, you were right. Dowi and Adam in DC are buried under snow. We got a heavy dusting and lots or rain. We did get out supplies and we are trying not to succumb to cabin fever. Of course we refuse to go out. I mean really! Sounds like your mama is busy. I am partial to feathers and sparklers. Got any of those?

Badges!? Oh, good! We need stinkin' badges.
