Well folks, here is the 9th Weekly wrap-up! With the 4th of July come and gone and the chaotic churn of many birthdays in my family among many travel plans and trips to the mountains, work, writing etc I have had my work cut out for me. I have several projects in line for this month, and believe me, I did not forget nor abandon them. My dilemma is not having enough hours in a day to get to everything. I think some of us can relate. So as for this instalment of “The Weekly Wrap-Up” I am reporting on some of the items that Crystal Dynamics has officially announced. Let’s get started:
I am pleased to say that the:

Student of Egyptology. Huge Tomb Raider fan. Little Croft is my nickname because i am a short version of Lara long braid and all. But I am me not her! LOL! Explorer. World Traveller. Writer. Languages. I enjoy web developing, meeting new friends, having a true blast in the Tomb Raider fan circle. I never get mad. I like to laugh. Have fun. Always learning. Family is an important factor in my life. I do not waste precious time being angry, catty, gossipy, hateful nor a troublemaker. If you are a mean, hateful person, I will just stop talking to you. *waves goodbye whilst smiling* Being nice is good. So, stop by and say hi if you drop in. I would love to hear from you!
