Busy night, like usual. Trying to get LC down tonight was tough because he was full of P & V probably due to anxiety for his first day of school tomorrow. I have my night shift tomorrow, so I will be able to see the boys off on the bus and get those pictures.

I hope everyone had a great day.


Good night all.

Breaking Christmas Information!!!!

I forgot to say earlier that I was watching Home Improvement on Hallmark Channel this afternoon. They went to commercial and all of the sudden I hear Bing Crosby singing It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas, they had commercials for their Countdown To Christmas which begins November 2.

I think that was the earliest I have ever seen a Christmas commercial, and it is just awesome!!!!!


Good night all! (again)

those were some of my favourites too as well as Hardy Boys, Sweet Valley High and another I can barely remember the title , I think it might have been Monster something.

I can't wait to hear if Santa emails you back!

I hope you all have a good day. I will try to check in on my lunch break and if I can't I will check in after work.

Maybe Carl will have a little something to calm my nerves tonight at the Pines. Wait...on second thought....I want to make sure I make it back for my second day on the job tomorrow, so I'm staying away from anything Carl tries to give me.

Have a good Wednesday!

Good Morning, Center of the Weekers and 'Pines Preferrers.


Can we be back around to the Shispering Pines weekly open house day again already?
Carl says "YES" (I think somehow he's able to speed up time!) and his theme tonight is "welcome to the burrrs".
I suggested to him he might have meant "bers" but he said that was too pat. With the theme referring to "burrrs", the drink of choice will be ice-cold smoothies to herald the end of summer heat and the soon to arrive crisp fall weather.
(To be honest, I think the SP is probably ovestocked on something that will likely be blended into the smoothies and I'm not sure I want to try one!)

While thinking about that, make a note of this:
Days to the Season: 70
Days to Christmas Day: 112
And it is not lost on the casual observer that we find ourselves less than half a week away from SINGLE DIGITS to the 100-day Christmas Day Window, our final "window" Milestone of 2013.
Then.......Double/Double Days are here again!

Humid. Boy is it HUMID around here!
At least the temperatures aren't too high. Don't think we got out of the 70's or perhaps low 80's yesterday but it sure felt warmer.
I'm hoping for a respite today!
We are at 70 degrees here, currently.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday, Everyone.
And may you have a Practically Perfect 'Pines visit in every way this evening!
