Hey it’s Saturday! It’s college football day! Unfortunately, Missouri and Kansas State are off this week after both winning big games last week. So today we just get Kansas. And that’s an 11am game so after that your day is open for whatever else you want to do
Did you order your new iPhone 12 yet? I didn’t but my wife did. She has been dealing with a phone that will not turn up very loud making it tough to hear someone when on the phone. A new phone is a good thing.
Enjoy your Saturday! I’ll see you back here again tomorrow.
