Bell rings.

Grade, grade,  grade.

Drive downtown.

  1. Good six minute recipe to remember.Everybody in Pacific time needs a folder of them. I’m on Mountain time ~ that gives me another hour, barring early crashes.

  2. Awesome! Truly, impressive. I have been under similar pressure with my slicing but I don’t think I pulled it off as well as you did. Loved the humor you sprinkled in! Great day, really!!
