Is it too soon to say our count is starting to dwindle down into a bedpost?
<< Yes, Crown. >>
Well, OK then.
But that will come sooner than you think!
Warm and humid still yesterday, and today should be a repeat before we get a nice "Autumn Preview" this weekend.
Which brings me to the announcement.
The beach cottage rental season has ended and yours truly must travel over to the coast to see how the place fared and get the lawn (well, tough coastal weeds really) mowed.
As such, a countdown volunteer will be needed for Saturday and Sunday mornings.
This coveted position does not pay well (in fact it doesn't pay at all) but the fun and prestige is worth it as past vounteers will surely testify(?)
Any takers? Apply within. (Within the thread, that is.)
We stand at 74 degrees here this morning and please - have a Thrilling Thursday, OK?
Crown, I can take over the duties for Saturday and Sunday. I will be in Rochester, New York for a tournament, but that only means I will be up early and posting the count prior to leaving. Waking up an extra 10 minutes early surely won't help my morning preparations. I haven't searched to see if there have been any volunteers quite yet, but I would be happy to lend a hand should it still be necessary!
