Thanks for the mention Mike! I can’t wait for Spring either, mostly because they won’t get started on my house until it stops freezing over night.

Have a great weekend!

I spent the whole week shoveling again! I guess I’d rather have that than earthquakes, civil unrest and disasters. Who needs a million anyway! Thanks for the mention, Mike!

I’m definitely with you on the winter thing. Thanks for the mention.

Winter sucks. I think I want to transfer to Florida, and fill chips there. Of course, I’d complain about the hurricanes or the snakes or something.

Thanks for the mention!
