Day 100 - #100DaysToOffload

This is it, the final day, day 100. I truly never thought I would make it. I clicked the link to bring myself to this dashboard and kept getting a "Server not found error". That would have been typical for the server to crap itself on my very last post,…

A Flurry of Orders
