Goro, steppington, zeoyn and loulu79 - excellent work!

I was going to go with the Native American storyteller also, but I
just HAD to watch The Bachelor to see if he picked the cute one from McKinney, Texas - and he did! Both ladies were super sweet, but being a Texan, I had to root for Sara B. Its a big embarrasment and I hang my head in shame to admit that I got totally hooked on that stupid show!


Please reprimand me if I don’t contribute every day from now on! I keep skipping days, and that’s not productive!:slight_smile:

Very little time for lunch today. About 10 mins openCanvas.
