Also, your profile doesn't tell us where you live now and your words don't give it away, either. So, where are you living these days? If you don't live here now, are you thinking of moving back?

See ya'll 'round the forum!
Thank you for your welcome and I think it looks like a fun place to hang out.

I didn't put anything about my real name or where we live because my husband told me not to. After seeing and hearing and reading all of the stories about people who get stalked and/or other nefarious things happening to them I just don't give out my real name or where we live. We do live in the St. Louis area though. I don't guess that would get me in too much trouble. We have discussed moving to the southern part of the state though, just haven't made up our minds about it is all. With the housing market in the state it is in we will probably have to wait quite a while before we dare try to sell our home up here though. We have some really good friends who happen to live in Poplar Bluff that keep trying to get us to move down their way but we happen to be partial to the southwest area more. We just don't know for sure is about the easiest way to say it.

Have to clean the kitchen, a really good overall cleaning today so I will only be on at spotty times.

What a trip! Never heard any of that before! Thanks, Voyager!

Here's a working link:
http://www.vpparade.org/]2007 Veiled... Parade - Home

Btw, the problem was at the beginning of the link where "[url=" should have been "[url]"

Hooray! My web design / html class is paying off!

You're very welcome! Thank YOU for updating your profile! It's amazing how much we use them to help us clarify things so hopefully, you won't get called a "he" or have anyone "hit you up for a date" in the future!
