OMG

Isn't it funny how once you learn something it becomes integrated into your life? Just a few days ago I became acqainted with the text message phrase "OMG."

Confused again

Here I am confused again. I was grazing my blog profile and other pages I am not always sure how I navigate to. None the less, a pop up box asked if I wanted to share my blog post on Face Book.

"Yes LI was a washing machine but east of Block over to Buzzards Bay was downright nasty. I'd have enjoyed it more if we could have stopped to smell the roses but this was all about getting there so it was long days."
