I'm waiting for the next chapter ... this is so funny! (Laughing WITH you, not AT you)

What happened to the burro? If you say "what burro," I guess you forgot about that part. And if you forgot that, you probably forgot about your flamenco demonstration, too. Ole!

It is a three day weekend here and the last of the summer festivities before school reopens. We are hoping to go to an animal park near the lake district maybe on Saturday and perhaps a drive to the seaside again on Sunday. Other than that we will have a BBQ and watch some movies and chill at home.

Thank you Snow, that is kind of you to say. School re opens on Sep 04th! I can't believe it's almost over to be honest!

One day away from the beginning of the weekend...
Hope you all have a beautiful & blessed day!!

Sounds like a great plan, have a wonderful lunch with your family! What are you doing this weekend?

Most weekends we make the 3 hour drive down to check on my ailing parents. Neither one is doing well. Mom is still determined to go to Myrtle Beach on Labor Day weekend to see the ocean one more time. Hope we can make it happen.

An article in our local newspaper stated that the mountains of western North Carolina were second to Hilo, Hawaii in rainfall for the year in the US. We have already far exceeded our normal rainfall amount for the entire year. I certainly like the cooler temps but the rain has gotten old. Just 5 years ago, our well went dry during a drought. Now we have more rain than we can handle causing several land slides. It is suppose to be a nice weekend with only a slight chance of rain and highs in upper 70s and lows in mid 50s. We hope to be able to stay home and enjoy it.

Have a blessed day.
I am very sorry to hear your parents are not well. I hope you get to go to the beach, I am sure you will treasure these memories.

Wow senior year, I bet you feel like it was only yesterday he was little! I sure know what you mean about turning back the clocks.

Weird weather every where this year. I hope the rain lessens up where you are. Have a lovely weekend.

Ahhhhhh so that's where my sombrero went to.........

Seems like I was AWOL for a day or two and didn't realize it. Sorry 'bout that! I was here, but didn't leave any footprints.

Since we have no kids, I feel like a lazy slug compared with you parents who are keeping up with the beginning of another school year. We're busy in our own way, but not with the dawn-to-dusk job of raising children. Caring, engaged parents and grandparents are super-people---congratulations to you all!

I've been working on this year's YuleTube clips, planning a Christmas afghan, and wondering when the Christmas cards will come out at the Christmas Tree Shop so I can get an early start. Yep, it's August, all right! A couple weeks ago I started building a new Christmas library on iTunes so I can sync it up as soon as the season arrives (for me, that's usually right after Halloween---until then I listen to some Christmas music here and there, but after Halloween it's all Christmas music).
