I hate that I missed this! It looks like it was a lot of fun.
Kaitlin, Make sure you have it on your calendar & check out Durham Mardi Gras next year. Always a great time!
Start slow with rides around the local park to
get your legs back. But what if you have already co-signed for a car loan. Old t-shirts make great cleaning
cloths and can be used to stuff pet toys and bedding.
