Good evening!
I am going to turn in soon. Just trying to unwind for a few minutes. My husband is very cranky tonight, the hot tub doesn't seem to be working. My oldest had a lot of people here last night which probably had something to do with it. Who knows what they did. My husband will figure it out, he always does. He is just annoyed because he has so much going on with the construction in the house, he doesn't need more work. And my youngest had friends over tonight, we had to keep telling them to keep it down. When its summer vacation they seem to forget that people have to get up early and go to work during the week. They are making us crazy this summer, never a dull moment here.
Anyway, I got my truck back and they did a great job detailing it. I didn't realize how filthy it was until I got the car back. Of course its going to rain tomorrow, lol. But the good news is the temperatures will only be in the 70's. Not bad for August 1st.
I hope everyone had a wonderful day!

I usually see them before the end of July, but nothing yet this year here.

I hope you all had a great Pines day.

Good night all!!!
Yea, I was the same way, I was all screwed up yesterday, I kept on thinking that it was Thursday all day! Wishful thinking huh....

Yea buddy...I'm with you on that one~

Nope, not yet here on my end, but the Fall and Halloween stuff is starting to roll in, big time.

Yea, George is a scream with some of his responses, he's quick on the draw (as they say), I miss seeing his posts.

I used to do alot of the games as well and I have not visited that section of the Forums too much lately. I should get back there once in awhile just to break things up a bit....and say Hi to George as well.

You know, speaking of George, have you ever been to his website, he is a fantastic cartoonist, his work is unbelievable good; I was totally blown away with his abilities...

I have to tell you about how much of an impact things here at the MMC forums can rub off on your daily life... Here I was at Michaels the other day and I walk past an isle that had Crayola products in it. On one of the shelves was a kit where you can make a Polar Bear, (I thought to myself that Louanne would have loved that).

Then as I was walking thru the store as a whole, I caught myself saying out loud as I walked past certain items; "glitter" and "glitter - drink", LOL... This is the truth! Lisa even heard me and she goes, "what are you saying???" I just started laughing to myself as I started to head to the isle where all the Halloween stuff was set up...

Good Morning, new month Folks.
(August already. Unbelievable!)

Continuing on through our count.
Onward and downward to our remaining Milestones and then the start of Christmas Season 2013!

Days to the Season: 104
Days to Christmas Day: 146
Just over half a week left now until the 100-day Season Window arrives.
(Getting mighty close, my Friends!)

Still we cling to the nice-for-July weather.
Hopefully, it will last on through to the weekend.
We have 72 degrees here currently on our back door thermometer.

Have a Thrilling Thursday, Everybody.
Weekend Eve once again tomorrow, you know!

Nice; I've been doing the very same thing with the "Hagerstown Town and Country Almanac". I've been saving each copy, for about 20 years now. I re-new a subscription for myself and my grandfather every three years...
