  5. My brother & sister-in-law's place is just inland from Carolina Beach. Cold comfort, but it's about 2 or 3 blocks from the ocean and up on stilts. Hit me if you need directions.

  6. We're on the Banks o Carolina now. Here (hopefully) till Saturday. Corolla. You?

  8. Haha. I'm not a parent, but I can imagine... :D

  9. It's the most wonderful time of the year......

    PS. Cupcake answer was classic!

  10. Nooooooo! Just received email from school district about potential school closure on Monday!

    C'mon Irene.....
