I hear you on the temps, CAH. It's 80 here in the shade. UGH! Have a great day with the grandkids!

Kids will be here shortly so I better get busy and get some things done around here.

I hope you all have a Merry Day!!!

Wish I had more time and energy and drive space to convert our LPs and cassettes! I've done a handful, but I doubt they'll ever all be digitized. Happily, we have a couple of turntables and cassette players, so I can play them, but not in the car or on the go.

Have your son apply for an Elks scholarship! They normally give out some good ones. The national winners get $60,000 each!!!

I hope your mom feels okay to go to Myrtle Beach. I loved going there as a kid and teenager.

Praying for both of your parents (N and G).

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.

With all that running around you do, you sound as busy as HMG and Sugar! Maybe that's why you think it's Friday!

Have fun at the water park! Hope the temps will be high for that.

We did all of our running around yesterday, getting Jacob to guitar practice and Elizabeth to ballet practice. When we finally got home, they up till 11pm doing homework. Yippee, schools back in.

It's hot & humid down here, so humid you can feel the moisture in the air. Yuck! But we go back to the water park tomorrow evening, so that should be fun.

I hope y'all have a great day!

I have been super busy. I feel like everytime I log on here, I have to log right back off to do something. We have been doing some back to school shopping here and there. We have also been scheduling some doctor and dentist appointments. My youngest took her senior portraits a few days ago. I have also been working on financial aid applications for my two oldest. I am having some problems with that, and I am getting frustrated. And to top it off we are still having internet problems, we keep losing the connection. It also affects my phone. I could be in the middle of a conversation and then I lose the call. I have another technician coming to the house today to see if he could figure it out.
Other than that we are well. I am just completely sleep deprived and exhausted. I am looking forward to the start of the school year. I am looking forward to the girls being in early on school nights and me being able to get some sleep!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Next thing I know I'm waking up on my front lawn with no recollection of how I got there, wearing a sombrero that I've never even seen before. Needless to say, my wife was very disappointed in me.

I would love to visit the Lake District. The poets from the Romantic period (Wordsworth, Coleridge, etc.) are among my favorites. English literature is wonderful!

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!



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



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.........
