They are not in order. Should I put them that way?

Have a safe trip? I'll try and wave back.

Due to an incredible lack of foresight on my part, the results of this nomination round will be posted later this week.

Who made Thanksgiving so late and then said we have to travel? <sigh>

Have a fun-filled Thanksgiving.

That was the idea, but the prediction of freezing rain while driving through PA changed that. Instead, on the Hoosier farm with my parents.
