So, this morning I got a little more brave. First I received an email about the audio version of Snowball that is in production. (The release of the audio should be in 5-10 days.) If you want to check out the Instagram post by the producter/narrator Anna Grace Conover I am putting the link in … Continue reading Being Brave
First Twitter post I saw this morning was about Mickey Mouse's Birthday. It brought back to me memories. Memories of Chef Borardee's box of spaghetti dinner, TV trays, watching television and Marlon with his Wild Kingdom. Then after the credits and commercial came Tinkerbelle and the Magic Kingdom. It was a wonderful life, one of … Continue reading Happy Birthday, Mickey
