Hello

You have got a nice blog. There is a problem though. I couldn't find any way to search your archive. It's annoying to manually go through several months. Please add a search box to the layout of your blog. Here is a link to a ordinary search box that you can add to your Blogger layout.

The comments above. The "anonymous" people.

I can see it now..."Johnny, thanks for the Gladiolus! I'm glad you think that much of my character."

Em's favorite are Tulips...I like them too.
