Sounds like a great time!!!! Hope you enjoy it!!!

Holiday, I just prayed for you and your company! I know that has to be stressful.

Snowflake - sorry to hear about your phone, but glad you are OK!

We got some upsetting news at work today! Our biggest customer (we have been making parts for them for 15+ years) has found a cheaper way to have their parts made & will be leaving us after November!! UGH! We can't come close to making the parts for what they will be getting them for - of course it's overseas! Hopefully the boss man can find something to take their place or we will all be looking for a job. This product was a full time job for 4 guys & a lot of my work too! UGH UGH UGH!!!

Yep. Of course with the way things are going here lately, I may need that vest just to go to the grocery store up the street.

It is going to be hazy, hot and humid again today with a chance of thunderstorms. The local news keeps talking about the heatwave finally being over. I don't know, it is still too hot for me and way too uncomfortable outside. I tried to walk the dogs late last night and they started to pant so bad that I took turns carrying them again. People must think I'm crazy, lol. It's not even worth going, I need some cooler temperatures!!
My youngest isn't feeling well. I am going to make a doctor appointment today, not sure whats going on with her. She had an invitation to spend the week at a beach house with one of her girlfriends and the girls family. They left yesterday and she's disappointed that she didn't go. If the doctor says she is well enough and she feels good, I could still send her. I just have to put her on a ferry and they will be there waiting for her. So we'll see what happens.
Anyway, not too much going on for me today. I have a few phone calls to make and I also need to order books for my middle daughters nursing program. I must order them today because she has a summer packet to do and I want her to have a few weeks to pace herself and get the homework done.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
I hope your daughter is better soon! How is Maggie doing? I hope you have a wonderful day, too, HMG!

My buddy started a new job yesterday working 8 to 5 so I won't be hearing from him as much anymore. That will free up some more time for me. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!
The cold front has arrived here - it is fall-like!

Other than that it was a pretty good evening, saw lots of cool Halloween stuff last night,
Aw, poor Harper - I hope she is better soon!
