All the stops were pulled-out in last week in an effort to keep the good Ju Ju flowing. Talismans were unpacked. Packer Mardi Gras beads were hung from the Packer Tree. I wore my Packer jacket all week long to the day job. My 1995 Packer shirt was brought out of retirement and worn today. Jill donned her LeRoy Butler jersey.

And Sister-In-Law's G-Force apple-cranberry victory pie was enjoyed by all.
