If you were wondering what's happened to Ruth ... she checked in with the mods this morning to let us know that she's run away to the beach. Just had it up to here with the cold and snow! So right now she's parked on her lounge chair in her itsy-bitsy teensie-weensie yellow polka dot bikini, sipping a pink drink with an umbrella in it (SBD friendly, of course!) But that darn Raoul got massage oil in her laptop and fried her modem, so she isn't going to be able to post until she can get it fixed.
Ruth assures us that she'll be back home and on-line in a few days, right after the wet Tshirt contest.
