Thanks for the reminder about Christmas magazines. I looked last night at Wal-Mart, but I didn't see any. Soon we will!

July is just about over, now it is time for what I feel is the longest month of the year.

Anyone seen any Christmas magazines yet?

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!!!

I'll take it...only if it will actually feel like 70 degrees! Can you throw in one of those fancy new Carl mugs, too?
