Things To Do! 9/15/2016 – 9/22/2016

Oh my goodness, y’all, there’s so much I want to do this week that I wish I was the X-Men mutant that can multiply himself.

If you know about an event I’ve missed, please feel free to share the details/link in the comments! Especially for things going on this week, I’d hate to have someone miss a thing they’d really enjoy because I wasn’t logged in. If you have a future event, go ahead and use the contact me link to send in the info on that.

If you want to know who this crazy person is who makes these posts, you can catch me talking to The Mid Day Show with Rich & Co. on Fridays at 12.30pm.
