Happy Hour Time

Welcome, Welcome, to Happy Hour Time on this wonderful Friday! I can hardly believe that today is the last day of February! Even though you can get away with going overboard with pink and red and Valentine’s is always a fun time, I am glad to see February go; it is just one of those months that wears on a person a little.  I am sure everyone has some get plans for this weekend, whether it is catching up on some rest or going all in with the Mardi Gras celebrations. Here’s to a wonderful weekend ahead, may March bring some great memories and warm weather! Cheers!
