Good Morning.


Oh dear!

It's finally happened.

Nothing to say.

No witty statements.....
No alliteration......
.....Nothing to say about Bing and their coffee issues.....

------ Writer's block! ------

******* SIGH! *******


Wait. Hold on......

{{ What's that Carl? Oh REALLY?? }}

Good old Carl.
He's saved the day for me by stating that the 'Pines will be supplying ALL the free iced tea you can drink tomorrow at the weekly open house!
(What a sympathetic camel!)

Now I'm happy again and can bring the following proudly to your attention:
Days to the Season: 288
Days to Christmas Day: 330
Two weeks from today, Folks -- Milestone #2 -- the 1/4 Season marker.
Be here.
Aloha.

Well, the long-awaited warming trend has started.
We crested 50 degrees yesterday for the first time in quite a while and today we should reach at least the mid-60's.
And tomorrow -- the 70's.
WOW!!
At this moment, we show 49 degrees on our back door thermometer.

Have a Terrific Tuesday, my Friends.
And we (hopefully) will see you at the 'Pines tomorrow evening!

Who else had their air conditioner on last night??? Yes, it was that miserable in our house. We have not ran the heater for 3 days and finally last night we had to have the air conditioner on just to get some sleep. 71 degrees out right now. I am hoping for some cold weather soon and possibly some snow!

Good thing about the warm weather, I get to ride my bike today! =)

I had the window fan in my bedroom window and the furnace down to only 15c. I cannot stand to sleep in a warm room, even in a snow storm I will have my window open a crack.
