Good Saturday morning everyone! I love Saturdays, especially when my hubby doesn't have to work. :) I am really looking forward to today. It's supposed to be near 70° and I just know it's going to feel good! I am ready freddy for Spring!

Okay, one last thing that's been on mind, lol. Please tell me someone else had The Little Professor calculator when they were little? Remember these? I LOVED mine!! HELLOOOOOOO...remember it was an **owl!?! It's so funny how popular owls still are in scrapbooking and with how much I love them, that it makes perfect sense that I had one when I was young! LOL!
Sooooo, did you have one? I think there was 2 different kinds, but this is the kind I had and I thought it was so cool. :) I'm thinking it was circa 1980 or 1981...

**ETA: I've come back here to say that my recollection of the Little Professor being an owl is wrong, rofl (thanks Leigh for jogging my memory!)! I had another calculator in mind. Will share that one (and it IS an owl, lol) tomorrow! ;) But I still loved my Little Professor either way! ;)

So, that's it! I told you, quirky post! Enjoy your Saturday!
