Snark Meister said...'s about 50 degrees here in WA and looks like it might rain at any time! Me and a group from the store are going a "Precision Shopping Cart Drill Team" for the Farmer's Day Parade today...just hope it doesn't start hosing on me as I either bike to work or push my cart in the parade!
