Happy Pines day everyone. A hot day here in the mountains. We are forecast to hit 88 in town and 84 at our house (difference in elevation). Too hot for me.

Busy here at work as we are reaching the end of the state's fiscal year. I have to get my part of year-end completed before June 26 so we can go on vacation. So looking forward to vacation this year.

Have a blessed day everyone.

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be HOT here today with a high of 91 and a heat index of over 100. Then we are going to have some strong storms overnight. Fun. My sister has no hot water so I have to go look at her water heater to see if I can figure out what's going on. Then it will be back home to sit in front of the A/C for the rest of the afternoon and evening. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

We have some customers coming in for the plant tour and meetings today. I'm never going to get my work done.

VBS is going good. I like the outdoor games with the water balloons best. Fun stuff!

I hope y'all have a great day!

She was watching the movie one day and asked about the pregnant lady in the movie if that was a baby in her tummy. I told her it is. Then later in the movie she said, "grandma, that lady has a different shirt on". I agreed with her that she does, then she said, "who held the baby when she changed her shirt"? I guess she thinks the baby just sits under your shirt for 9 months!!! That little girl keeps Wayne and I laughing all the time!!!

LOL!!!!!

Our little furry family member is still doing well. Maris has adjusted to home life very well considering she lived on the streets for the first year of her life. She is one happy little girl and we are thrilled to have her!

That's a great surprise and I'm glad to hear my little buddy is doing good!!!

Good Wednesday, everyone.

As hot as it is here (upper 90s today, heat index of over 100), I will not need the hot tub tonight at the Pines! In fact, I hope Carl cranks the A/C up high and has some snow cones or something. Maybe that crazy camel has the pool all ready to go and it is just waiting, inviting us all for a swim. I think I may talk to Carl about putting in a water slide, too.

Hope you all have a great day!
