We didn't let the rain bother us. . . Deborah got away from the store early today, so the Mrs. and I went Christmas shopping. We decided to give West Mobile a shot and there was much to see and do. While we were wandering around, one must always stop for a good cup of coffee. In this case, Carpe Diem on Old Shell Rd. was just the ticket. If my expression appears to be serious, it is just "sticker shock" from the prices of Christmas goods. Cheers!
