Stopping by to say hello...

What a wonderful list. You certainly had a glorious summer.

Agreed: a dive bar is often the best place to get fried mozzerella.

Wow. THE Michele came by to say hi. I don't know if she's ever stopped by MY blog to just say hi, and I've been going to her way longer than you! I brought you to her! Ew. =)

I like your list! I want to make one! I'm glad you had a good summer - and I'm glad I was on your list a few times!

See you tonight, I hope!
