Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 3, Day 4

Post by DadofTwins »

While I have a few minutes, I'm going to post days 4-6 of Round 3. Round 4 will start when I get clearance from The Powers That Be. My hope is that once Round 4 gets underway, there won't be any more delays.

And we have another guest writer today. Enjoy.

Good luck. To us all.
