My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Lori in South Dakota couldn't get the comments to work, so she emailed me her entries. If you have similar problems, my email can be found on my profile page.


stereotaxic--a stereo that is dying or working sporadicly

stereotomy--a lone ruling stereo, or else one that is owned by a teenager and is driving a parent crazy. Said parent is going to "remove it" ASAP

LOL---looks like you added latin endings to normal words. How was halloween??

Lori in SD--who didn't have much a clue for last weeks words, and this week has even less!!
