Last Call For Jimmy T

I am very grateful for all you’ve done! I’m taking your spirit with me when I go!

To make sure I get in, I’m asking you (for the last time I promise!) to vote one more time and to forward this to as many people as you can.

Five minute of your time could change the lives of my family!!!

 Thank you so much…. your support means everything!

Jimmy T.

Who’s got “First Flower”?

On December 6 Sharon posted a frozen chrysanthemum as last flower. What I want to see is first flower. It might reach 50 degrees tomorrow and right through the weekend. So can we make a contest for who can get a first flower posted? Crocus, Pussy Willow, even just the buds on a Weeping Willow will do it for me. Extra points if there is a boat in the background.

If there is a Crocus flowering in your yard Miss Etiquette says it is OK to drink Gin and Tonics in the backyard. Find that crocus.
