Well we are supposed to get a pretty good rain overnight. So I may have just went to the store and bought a pretty big canister of lighter fluid. If you here about any forest fires in Indiana tomorrow, I swear I had nothing to do with it!!!!!

I'm not sure why they stopped coming here. We threw some tubes in the pool and I read that may prevent them from landing in the pool. I guess it worked. I kind of miss them, lol.

OK!
Back on line and on onward with our ever-dwindling count:
Days to the Season: 93
Days to Christmas Day: 135

Highdy-Ho, good neighbor, and Hark as well!
TWO days remain until we reach yet another Milestone, the 3/4 marker to the Season and the start of our final quarter.
(Makes you want to get an advance on Carl's eggnog blend!)

The humidity?
Oh, yeah. It's here in spades.
The temp?
Not too bad but coupled with the humidity, it makes you want to give a gold medal to whoever invented air conditioning.
Right now, we show 76 degrees here in the capital city.

Have a Marvelous Monday, Folks!
(And after reading how close our next Milestone is, I'll bet your Week is off to a Fantabulous start!)
Glad you got everything fixed!
