He tore another wall down yesterday so we had a lot of cleaning to do. He said that was the last of the demolition work. I hope so! Anyway, not too much going on here today. I have a couple of quick errands to run later. Then back home for daily chores. Have a great day!!

One of my favorite "windows" is coming up! I love it when we get to 199 and then 99 days to the Season.

Day after tomorrow -- SINGLE DIGITS to the 1/3 Season Milestone.
Add a day, and the 200-day Season Window opens on a 100's count landscape.
And here's a quick head's up on our NEXT Milestone: ONE MONTH from TODAY, we will be HALF WAY back to our grand and glorious Christmas Season!!
(Isn't this starting to get exciting?)

Real pleasant here yesterday, with the high in the low 70's, lots of sun and not a smidgen of precip.
Even the pollen fall took a bit of a break.
We read 62 degrees here, currently.

Ready for a Marvelous Monday, Folks?
Hey. It's ready for you!

Hmmm. Fire = cool. Out here in California, most fires are either warm or hot, LOL!!!

Hopefully by Sunday of this week, all will be complete and we will only have a few finishing touches to do. I'm tired of the upheaval and glad to see the completion in sight!

Great Day All!

Normally the Elks have reservations at many of the hotels around the cities where the conventions are held. If anyone is serious about meeting up in Indy, I would suggest looking for reservations now. I will be staying with the California-Hawaii delegation. All the states will be assigned a specific hotel. I will try to find out where they will be. The hotels do not reserve all the rooms just for Elks; there are still rooms available for regular customers. Oh, man. I hope many of you can be there. This will be so much fun!!!
