going to the pines early sounds like a great idea!
It is still hot here too, but not as hot as where you are
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Penny was on my shoulder and then started to slip off and we all know what they use to hang on with! I seriously think I may have to ban her from that perch!
anyway, see you at the pines!
