Remember to R.S.V.P. to parties, turn on your blinker

tirado.jpg

Have you ever invited people over for a meeting at your home?
How about a little get together?
Or a huge party?
What about a group over to watch the Super Bowl?
Did you send out a cute little invitation?
Did it say “R.S.V.P.” or “Regrets only?”
