Thank you! Yes my day has been pretty wonderful so far. I hope yours will be great as well.

I have walked the dogs, straightened up the house and started laundry. I also drove my youngest in to work this morning, she had an early shift. My oldest will also be going in to work later this morning. My middle one has off but she will be working on a summer assignment for her nursing program. I can't believe we are half way through August already, they will be back in school before you know it.
Not too much planned for me today, typical day of errands and chores. I am definitely going to get outside and go for a couple of more walks with the dogs and enjoy the cooler temps!
I hope everyone is well and has a great day!!!
We have temps around 70', but it is said to get warmer in the next couple days.

Hope you are all well. I am fine expect for my knee, it decided to go for a walk without me and is still sore as a result. It does not like stairs, so I have not been in the staff lunch room all week since it is up a very long set of stairs. Walking around is OK, but not bending. Anyway, that is my whine for the day, have to go. Working 8:30 to 4 today.
Have a great day.
Hope your knee is feeling better soon, CS. Thinking of you!

Chris has recently started building and selling his own like of guitars and amplifiers. Here's a link to an interview done for him while he was at the big music trade show this year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzYhEf9MQrY Chris is a great kid. His older brother is one of my best friends, and played in the band with me for many, many years. We even survived a shootout in a bar one night...but that's a story for another day! LOL

I hope y'all have a great day!
Congrats to Jacob!!

That is awesome, Brad! Thanks for sharing!!

And I want to hear that story one day!

Good morning all. Anyone talk to Made this morning? Hope he's doing good and had a fun, restful night under the stars. Me, I'm sitting behind my desk like a sucker...wishing I was camping.

Hope everyone has a great day. I took tomorrow off to stay home, as its the last day before school starts, and my wife will be at work getting things ready. So, it will just be me and the kids and I'm going to try and make it a fun day for them.

Kind of weird that school starts on a Friday but my wife prefers it that way. She said they can go over the rules and procedures and then start actual instruction time on Monday.

Yes, I heard from him.
He had a nice night, and is taking the scenic route home =] And stopping to sample chocolates. Sounds like a great day to me!!

Enjoy your day off tomorrow with the kids!! How fun! What do you guys have planned?

Thanks for the update Snowflake!

Not sure what we are going to do tomorrow. There's a place the kids love called Andy Alligators that I may take them to. It's one of those arcades (aka c*sino for children) where they try to win a bunch of tickets and get cheap prizes that we could buy for a lot lower cost at the store. It really reminds me of slots as the machines all have bells and whistles and lights that go off as they shoot out the tickets. But the kids love it so we go sometimes. We may do that.

By the way, I saw where a Halloween store has their sign up so they'll be opening soon! Can't wait!

My kids start this Friday, too. Oh, they're so sad.

For the last few years, they've been given a pretty good bit of homework to do...on the first day!

I hope your days before your vacay are uneventful so you can at least pretend it is restful. It is so exciting to hear about the turkeys! I love the sound of that! Your Jim Shore ornament is a fantastic find! And the bubble lights really bring back childhood memories for me. Thanks for sharing those, Xmas.

I will start to receive my turkey order guides for Thanksgiving VERY soon, and the first deliveries of frozen turkeys will be in about 1.5 months.

Have a great Pines Day!!!
