Illustration Friday : BUZZ


So many things came to mind when I heard this week's word...buzz haircut like my dad always had. Buzz, my husband's best friend in Rhode Island...get a "buzz" on, what's the buzz, and on and on. But then I remembered I had news to share with all my Iffer friends in Ifsville! So many of you wanted to know if Olaf proposed that cold night he skated to Olga's house, and the day has finally come that I can share the good news! So go ahead and read the engagement announcement in "The Town Buzz." I'd be happy to pass along words of congrats, and you can be sure you'll be the first to know when they've set a date. That's it for now...gotta buzz off!!
( For newcomers to my blog, please see IF:Might so this post will make sense!)
