I did well on today's questions Patsy.

Our snow is melting today. It was pretty just long enough to make Christmas very special.

We are finishing up the leftover spaghetti today. Guess you are eating turkey sandwiches. You and Bennie enjoy your afternoon.

One out of two again though I really knew the second one but second guessed

No snow in Forida but it's only 43 degrees at noon. Eating leftover ham. Hope you all stay safe and war.

We went to a school named Gilboa for a couple of years. My mom and her siblings graduated from it. It is in upstate NY. Got that question right but not the second. What a gruesome thing of hanging the bodies on the walls. However, it might be a good idea to do something similar with photos in high crime districts to use as a deterrent? . . .
