Re: Minnie's 2020 52 Project

you get'n that forgetful (no camera).....fun image.
I had it packed and ready, but...

I wouldn’t have had a lot to do anyway though with the tropical storm beating down on us for 3 days. It is supposed to clear up tomorrow, but we’ve gotta go home for a grandson birthday party.
