Ooh, what a fun blogfest! I'd love to participate, but the only kind of writing I do anymore is of the comic strip variety, so I'll have to sit this one out and see what everyone else comes up with!ReplyDelete
Congrats to your father in law ;)ReplyDelete
This is when I wished blogger was more friendly to pre-written posts. (Allowing you to grab the urls before published.) *sigh* I'm so in, but won't be able to add to the linky for a while. Super awesome.ReplyDelete
