Early this afternoon, I will be making a flight back from Orlando to Minneapolis, and then from Minneapolis to Warroad. Let's just hope for no delays! But, you do know what day it is, so you never know what to expect!
For today, I am just going to post some bullet points and see where it takes us. I apologize for the laid back approach today, but it isn't too easy planning for postings four days into a trip. If you know of any other good links to stories or blogs, please feel free to post them as well.
Thank you and have a great weekend!
That's it for today and for this week! Enjoy your weekend! I believe I’m at home all of next week!!
