We Extremely Enjoyed The Golden Girls Trivia Game With Jessica SassyJay Leggett Please Do This Again Maybe Every Week... Great Job😍😍😍
It’s Friday...”Book em”
Reading a book on magic. Not sure if I’ve got this right...but I’ve got a few Twix up my sleeve.
I’m currently reading a Stephen King novel in Braille. Something bad is about to happen...I can feel it.
Daylight savings is like cutting a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and thinking you have a longer blanket.
Some assembly required.
I’ve noticed that all the great authors have been strangely silent concerning cheese...
K9 Library
If they only knew! 😍 In honor of the very best media specialist I’ve ever known, one who broke the chains of illiteracy for thousands of children over her career.
I was wondering if you might have this kids book offering by a Mr. Smelt it and a Mrs. Dealt it? Asking for a friend.
I picked up a signed copy of an all time best seller!
Well...I just dropped my copy of “The Christmas Carol” on my foot. It hurts like the Dickens.
