  1. CyberPete: Thank you! I hope October is a great month for everyone!
    I hope to post something on the 16th too. I’m glad I didn’t give away my dictionary!

    Tim: You could always tape or glue the bakery buns to your ears to honor the holiday, but that would probably be a bit much.

    Cyber: :D

    Laura: Thanks! I hope to enjoy this month, and hopefully celebrate more of the holidays than I did last month.

    Dmarks: I hope you do, but either way keep on visiting! :)
