    you are not serious MAY 5th

    November 23, 2012

    • Dean H

      Haha! Absolutely! Indeed I am serious! For 2012, I had events going from January right through until mid September all posted in advance! I knew what vacation weeks I would take and what weekends that I would not be around and the rest was finding new places to go to where I have not been before and wanted to check out. I pretty much stuck to the plan as well as it unfolded. I will not be posting much into the new year this time around.
