Seventies: The snow here is an insult to people who want to get a day off from work... lol Its just floating around in the air... lol
Selma: Told you I only want snow for temporary decoration..then melt quickly

alt: for sure vkn, Happy & Glad to be anywhere

Seventies: Yes, Africa is the 2nd largest continent and definitely the wealthiest.. I gotta run, deadlines to meet. Y'all have a good day!
