It started out as a Cub blog with cuss words. I'm still cussin'; it's the Cub part I'm a little squishy on these days.

You are TOO CUTE! That is MORE of an honor to ME, that you listen!!

Yeah..Cubs DO suck right now. I had tix to today's game and sold them.
I couldn't get the $60 I paid for them they are soooo bad! ha. Oh
well. Thats what I get for waiting in the virtual waiting room before the
season started to get tix for the END of the season!!!

I learned something new...I didn't know Ernie Banks did that! I'm
trying to soak up all I can on the sports world. Needless to say, when I
first moved to Chicago...I was a TOTAL DUMB GIRL! Hopefully I get
things under raps before I'm too old to enjoy it!

Mt. Prospect huh? Are you a football fan? Starting with the first
Monday Night Football...I'm going to be at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Mt.
Prospect EVERY Monday'll have to swing in!

Thanks for listening Rob!! And ABSOLUTELY! Write about me anytime!!
((As long as its nice...haha.))

Have a great week...


Anyway, I asked her for a bigger pic, so hopefully she sees this and sends it along.

I have PEEPS now...whooooooo!
