Thanks, KM :)

Hey, Mom Whig!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Candy-O'67:

That is, Mom Whig. Who is that, KM? do you know?
Avatar 5:16pm Kitschy Mama:

not sure.. it looks like Freddie Mercury though.. it can't be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Oh, that's Freddie, alright!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Candy-O'67:

Oh, wow, KM! That's neat you lived here. I love it here. I always wanted to live here when I grew up in Houston, but then I moved to Southern California for 14 1/2 years. I thought I was gonna stay there forever until my dad made me the deal of a lifetime to come back and take over his biz and said I could live in Austin. That was 7 years ago in a couple of weeks. I joke now that I took an almost 15 year detour in CA before I made it here! haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Daisy:
