Taylor is 16!

Happy Birthday Taylor Simpson!!!!!  Pretty soon, I’ll be able to catch a ride with all of the kids who have ridden with me through the years.  I’m sure I’ll be the person they think of cruising with first!   Oh, well, Happy Birthday, Taylor!  So, it’s been a week since I’ve updated.  Yikes!  I’ve been super […]
