Better get those drinks in tonight and tomorrow.

If participating in the 2016 Lent Season, any special goals?

I'm hopping back on the wagon (as I do every year). I already disengaged from Social Media late last year.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
It is a good time to reflect on your life, break old habits and establish new ones. It is said that if you can do something consistently for 40 days it is now habit. So choose something good to do for 40 days and get in the habit.

As a non-Lent follower, I'm very glad for having good fish for the next few weeks !

I am tired of watching people eat those dang underwater insects called crawfish. They stink! I hope most folks give them up for lent!

Never had a crawfish. (My landlocked is showing.) I'd be willing to try one though, should I ever take a trip back down south. I love seafood, so I just might like it.

I haven't given anything up for lent in years. I *could* give up cigarettes I suppose, but they don't give us enough vacation days here for that. wink
