WHAT, FRIDAY AGAIN
Posted 9 February 2007on:
A must rush and dash post today… the children have invited friends to my home for dinner tonight. I don’t mind, I love being surrounded by these young couples so the oven is on and wonderful smells are already emanating from the kitchen…
Nothing meaningful from me this week but a few Jewish funnies below and of course Booba’s pride and joy.
