    Neither trick or treat. I was thinking crap!

  7. If you have read the posts– which you’ve had over a week to do, then these posts are easy. If not, shame on you!

    Oooh, that rhymes!

    And BW, don’t be so hard on yourself!

    Doublex gets 10 extra sweetheart points, BTW.

    So, answer my riddle: What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three legs in the evening?

    Extra credit for anyone who brings in the answer and the story on Wednesday.
