Re: Daily Check in Oct 21, 2015

Shel, is all this the bust after the boom in oil and gas? It seemed like the industries were growing like crazy for the past few years. We are all a little bit sick this morning at our house.

Re: DeCluttering

Jackie, I had a few more summer things that went into the donation bag this morning. They fit, but I hate having to tug at the neckline of shirts all day long, so off they went. Someone who likes to flash more skin than I do will enjoy them. :)
