Thanks for the shout out on GS cookies, Bobby! I can't believe after this beautiful weather that we are going to be selling in the snow tomorrow!

Saturday is a big day for people to get out and get things done. I imagine you'll have plenty of customers, regardless of the weather (which doesn't sounds like it will be real bad).
