Glad you re-blogged this. Very clever.

I haven't been as active on AR lately, and I'm afraid I missed some good posts. Thank goodness YOU don't! :)

Good Evenig Doug...What an excellent reblog.  I saw the original and thought it was very clever.  John must be a workaholic...I cannot understand where he finds time to do all these creative things, along with doing his business.  Thanks for sharing it with us Doug.  Have a great week
