Still Waiting

By: plapman, 3:28 PM GMT on November 25, 2014

We're still waiting, no new babies yet.
I called AlleyOpps yesterday and had a good chat with her. She seems in good form and is patiently waiting for her operation on Wednesday.
We're expecting show flurries today but the driveway is clear as I blew the snow away yesterday.
