    We got rid of ALL our lights--we sold them to a neighbor who does her house up big--inside and out--so the more lights the merrier for her.

    I'll do this little "snapchat" feature, too! This is fun! I'll also delete mine.

    I'm a little more salt-and-pepper than you guys, but Simplemind and Geila, you look great!

    Sounds wonderful, Tybee! I LOVE those kinds of simple meandering days, especially in a pretty town.

    Along those lines, while not in a small local town, my rave was about my walk yesterday, too!...
