Hi girls!

Merle, I'll be there- but I think your today is my tomorrow... or something like that! I love posting in the future on your blog!


Bios are just too interesting- read one on an FBI agent who worked under Hoover, & I would love to post about it, but I forgot his name!

When I look it up, I'll let you know:)
