Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Friends.

Sunday is here, and with it another count figure.
(The numbers are coming and going like ghosts.)

And the stats this morning are getting scarier and scarier:
Days to the Season: 94
Days to Christmas Day: 136

Why scarier?
Well, because we are now under half a week off from the 3/4 Season Milestone and the start of the last quarter of our journey.
And next month, my Friends......
Yes NEXT month......
Christmas Blossoms 2013 will be launched!
(Better be sure those camera batteries are charged and that you have plenty of disc space!)

Wow!
The humidity is back with a vengence. Just walking around the block with our sheltie leaves you drippy.
And he's a slow sheltie!
We have commenced the 2nd half of our weekend at degrees.

Have a Super Sunday, Everyone!


Update: My computer simply will not access the internet any more. Spent about 2 hours with tech support and all their suggestions came to naught. A technician is to come out on Tuesday with a new modem to see if that corrects the problem.
As such, my daily count posts will likey be delayed at least until then.
Please bear with me!

I haven't started it yet since I was already reading two other books, but I will get to it soon. The reviews were mixed.

Hope you all sleep better than me!!!!
My daughter works front desk at a major hotel here in town and she has see and heard it all. Her biggest complaint as a worker? Why when people are having problems with anything, do they not call the front desk and give them a chance to fix the problem? They come down in the morning complaining about everything under the sun, most of which could have been remedied had the guest simply asked.
So glad you have the good sense to do that! (call the front desk that is, LOL, just read this again and realised it made no sense)
Where are you off to now? Don't forget the pictures!

Crown do you want some volunteers to fill in until then?

Kind of pointless me asking as I just realized with out Internet you can't read my above question!
