the most wonderful time of the year... at least around In
story has become part of In My Backpack legend…
the release of Time Just Drifts Away in July of 2012,
Bob was looking for ways to raise awareness and promote the effort.

avocados can have a day… If scallops can have multiple days… If
raspberry cream pie can have a day… Why couldn’t Bob have

grateful if you meandered over to In My Backpack and
spent some time on the site.
your family! Tell your friends! Visit In My Backpack
often! Let’s have some fun!
