        Well, I do have to say that I wish the rain were a little bit of snow. Everything is beginning to look a little blah. The snow would have made everything look so clean.
       The biggest shopping day of the year is this week. I know I am excited. I hope everyone gets everything on their list. Before that though, is Thanksgiving, which is not my favorite holiday, but I wish a happy day for all of you.
