Loose Wedding Rings

In the meanwhile, this might even call for going outside today and getting some chores done and sneaking in a little walking.Might as well get it in before the next string of 90+ degrees sneaks back in. Happy Wednesday!   ...more

A few weeks ago, I went to the library and checked out a handful of books on the subject to see if I could answer that question. I just finished the first book.
