First you better check to make sure

Frozen carburetor


In the fun world of the administration of justice, not all the
laughs are in the court-room. Indeed, giggles and guffaws can erupt at almost any time or place.

Dear Patty ~~ This is a great joke,
but it is understandable when they are all covered up in their gear.
Thank you for stopping by and I am glad you liked the chocolate one,and like you, I am a walking alphabet.
The onion idea is sure worth a try.
I take 1 tablet called Inner Health
to keep myself healthy with good bacteria in it.
You have been working hard in the yard again I see. It is good they make mulch out of green waste. We
have a fortnightly green bin just for that, so guess they do similar here. The soup sounds delicious, just when I have stopped making

I hope you are keeping OK my friend
and sleeping well. I can sleep any
time lately, day/night. Take care, Love, Merle.
