It’s Friday, and now it gets really dark early, which is kinda depressing. So I looked for cheery things in my Twitter stream this week, and came up with a few. I’ve included others that are amazing or inspiring. And I know some people actually like time changes, so I salute you!
Please remember that Sunday, November 11th is Veterans’ Day. Thank a vet, and learn how vets and active duty military can eat free (other than beverages and tip) on November 11th at Applebee’s! Enjoy!
