posted Oct 5, 2015, 2:11 PM by Kate Starr
I am sending a BONUS edition WICOU that combines last week and this week!  There is nothing different in the formatting or information of the Bonus Edition, but "BONUS EDITION" sounds better than "oops I skipped a WICOU".  So without further ado, I present WCOU #24 THE BONUS EDITION!

THE WEEKLY ICO UPDATER #24 (WICOU pronounced Why-COO)

 

Below are organizational updates and weekly bits of fluff for your entertainment.  I will try to add a weekly photo as well.  Please let me know of any updates you would like added to the WICOU.
