Thank you Marcie, Tammy, Stacey, Mata, Carla and Jessica!
Marcie, I don't think I have enough of these to make a calender, but then, every time I think I'm done with this series, I do another one and love it, so we'll see I guess..
Mata, yes I do love my country very much, as I'm sure you love yours.. Thank you all for responding so well to these. I'm not really sure when this series will be over.. until then, hope you don't get tired of them.. #1062188
