Soooooooo, yesterday Sheila and her DH and I and mine took in a Concert on the Green. Later, we headed to the Mall to grab some yummy ice cream.

As we were walking through the Mall, Sheila's DH, Ken, suddenly said, "Hey! That hot girl just looked at me and smiled."

"That doesn't surprise me in the slightest," Sheila replied. "The first time I saw you I laughed out loud."

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
