I am out. Family decided to throw a birthday party for my son this Friday night. Unless I can figure out a way to have my son delivered Saturday some time I won't be there at all.
It has been decided. I will be up there about dark time. Lol. Unless I can get out of work a little earlier I will be there about 6ish. I will then have to leave about 11 to pick up my son to go where he picked out. The pine cobble trail in Williamstown.
You can take me off of the "Maybe List"
My planned trip to PA is a go. Maybe next time. Here's wishing you great weather!
