Good for you doing another 5K, and this one with hubby...sounds like a fun way to support something so needed for our furleggers. Funds are drying up for all these rescues it seems. I did a mile on my peddlar, I'll try to motivate myself to do another 2 over today. My leg muscle and knee are doing better so don't want to push it until I get into see ortho.

BNA is beyond a zoo and I don't see it getting better even after they finish the terminals. Dang it is worse than walking ATL from end to end it seems then getting to the garages. Never mind the traffic and lack of good signs. Now they have announced that next year they are going to lower a portion of Murfreesboro Pk to add still another runway! It is one long parking lot now during rush hour. It's amazing that it has been that long since they opened the airport. About that time our daughter and a group went to NYC when she was a sophmore, they flew out of Nashville and not Knoxville (?why, who knows) So yes, it has morphed quite a bit even in the 20+ years we've been in and out of here. No I don't like it but what are you going to do? Besides stay home.

Enjoy your weekend!

It does seem less humid, dew point is down a bit, but I see the forecast has hot hot hot coming back in full force. Still a little hazy from the smoke but that seems better too. We have seriously had a good season as far as summer, I am not gonna complain! We are going to do a 5k this weekend, hubby and I. I will walk with him. It's for Freedom Farm and we like to support them since we got one of our previous kitties from them.

Was remembering when I moved here 34 years ago. The first few times I flew here to visit (before I moved) the airport wasn't even there....it was on Airways Drive off Briley in a much smaller building. Later that year the big new building opened. So much change and growth...some growth is good, Nashville is certainly booming, but I am not sure I like it that much!!!

The humidity doesn't seem to be so bad, maybe we are getting used to it again?

I understand about that drive from H'ville to Gallatin, it just takes forever. Sounds like you got some good eats though. Good for you getting into an exercise routine again!

Nothing around here, can't believe it is almost Friday already. So hope you have some fun planned for the weekend.

Seemed a tiny bit less humid this morning but that didn't last long, lol, but still not bad for mid July, I will take it! I went to the Farmer's Market here, they didn't have much, other than than a lot of 'maters, so I went to Hendersonville Produce. I love the Gallatin one better to be honest but not loving the drive, as close as it is, it takes 30 minutes to get there, ridiculous traffic. So I got blueberries and blackberries and YUMMM!!!!! Been staying busy, today continuing education and dentist latter. Got a better routine now for exercise, so that's good too!

Agreed on the humidity, but at least there was a good breeze so it made it comfortable to stand outside and talk to a friend hadn't seen in maybe 2 years.

So did you make a short road trip to Gallatin? Too be sure the local stuff is far better than the tasteless berries etc from even Publix. We haven't had much produce at our market this year, and what is in, that I want, goes quickly.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Happy Saturday! Haven't heard anything about my PC yet, this iPad is so old and slow! Not as hot today but just as humid. Wonder if we will get more rain. At least our grass is green beans again. I am wanting some fresh berries, might just drive up to Gallatin to the market there, or I don't know, just run the Farmer's Market here, that might be better! Hope all is well!

Yikes, sorry about that Gloria! We have another month of sparks or did they change the date to July? I would hope dell would get it fixed sooner.

Momma may have a curious fawn and she just went off by herself hopefully realized she should have stayed put and doesn't go exploring again. I can imagine how the kitties reacted.

Hello! My PC has to be sent in to Dell for a few days so here we are at the end of SP and I won't have a PC. I will be trying to check in with my iPad. But no worries Kelly, I know how to find you! Hahaha, well anyway, got my walk in this morning, a small rain shower caught me but as humid as it is, it felt pleasant. The kitties did see the fawn! At first I didn't know what all of the commotion was about but they were going nuts and then later that day is when I saw the little one in our fence and Liz was at the window checking it out. Honestly, it's very young and not much bigger than she! Anyway, mama took her little one out and guess what, she actually has two babies! Not sure why they weren't together but they are now.

My brother in law's house didn't have a/c until about 15 yrs ago, summer in NY can be stifling too, the downstairs stayed fairly cool with ceiling fans so they held off. They have whole house ac since they rebuilt, more efficient everything so they enjoy it. Agreed, we forget what it is like in places. When the kids were in high school, there was no ac and summer practices indoors were brutal, what helped was a huge tub of solid ice and one of those industrial fans.

Sounds like a fun read thanks, will keep it in mind. Sad that folks feel they have to be so foul.

Saw your post about mamma parking her Bambi with you, I wonder if she just got curious and wandered into the fence. Mama's don't usually leave them out like that for anyone reading and did not know that. You did the right thing by not moving her, it's a common mistake made by many thinking they were doing the right thing. So Gloria, thank you for babysitting haha! Can't help but wonder, did any of your furbabies spot the fawn?

Happy Saturday, ugh, this humidity is rotten to the core! I don't know, this morning's dew point wasn't really any higher than the last few days but I was feeling it this morning when I was out running, my hair was so wet from sweating. Summer days! I was reminding my mom that not so long ago people didn't have A/C and they just had to deal with it. And a lot of people work in it all summer long! So we are pretty fortunate I think.

Read a hilarious book about running, not a book for anyone with with objections to profanity because the author DOES cuss and swear A LOT. And she is a librarian to boot! But anyway, the book is called "Running with a Police Escort" and it's about being last or being a slow runner. I could have written parts of that book myself, verbatim!

Nothing gone on up here today, just gonna stay cool!

You got rain near you Kelly? Well I am kind of jealous of that! Maybe we will get some over the next few days. I guess late yesterday there was a very light misty rain here, not even any drops in my pool, it was so light. I've not been doing too much over here, walking some, running some, strength training a little, cleaning here and there, but not enough of course, lol. Just enjoying the summer!!!

It was a quiet weekend here, stuck pretty close to home.

Surprising as hot as it was yesterday even after 5p did not feel that humid. Then again I wasn't out in it for too long of time. Crazy rain this morning, poured for a short distance coming home, pulled into my 'hood and it was dry!

Everyone have a good day tomorrow.

Hope it was a safe and happy holiday for everyone! It was quiet here, some pool time, some running time with friends, sat out in the yard and watched the neighborhood fireworks. The heat and humidity are climbing back up but I am enjoying every minute of it because wow, just a couple more months and we are on the way to fall again!!! I am getting in some running, some walking and some strength training, a little bit of that anyway!!!

I don't know of any yurts around here, but I know a couple of folks who have stayed in one...glamping at it's best I guess. But they still had to schlep to the "outhouse". I'm sure there is something like that around here.

So your hubby is a showoff taking his time with his chocolate cake! I'm going to have to make sure I am in a different lane as I go by that place because the car has no sense and will pull in for dessert.

Hope everyone has a fun weekend planned. I will watch the fireworks from home, one year I bought a ticket to watch from the Adventure Center. It would have really been better if the weather hadn't been so lousy, good spot. Except getting home from any direction was a wait. Don't know if they are doing it this year, didn't even think to look.

I had that leftover salad. Sometimes leftover salad isn't great but this was still fresh and crispy. I ate my cupcake as soon as I got home, ha! Hubby was better than I, he made his upside down German chocolate cake last a couple of days.

Haven't gone glamping yet, I think I should! One of my friends camped in a yurt. We had planned a bigger vacay last year but that didn't happen of course. Then with too much uncertainty we didn't plan anything for this year...maybe should think about a short trip to somewhere, beach or mountains. Doesn't have to be fancy!!!

That is a fun outing!!! Heard of Bledsoe but can't place it, you'll have to tell me all about it. My idea of camping is motel6, haha, although folks have gone glamping and loved it. You still have to schlept to the outhouse though. (I hear their outhouse isn't what I remember)

See ya tomorrow!

I camped with two girlfriends last night and at Bledsoe Creek State Park. Lots of fun! I think my knee is improving, I did walk the trail there this morning, three miles, but no running. We kayaked a little but not much. I am tired!!! Can't wait to see you Monday Kelly!

Hear you on the knee issues, got them myself and I also need to call the ortho man...I know better too than to put it off so maybe we should listen to each other and make that call. Who knows how long of a wait it'd be for an appointment?

By the way, I thought over the weekend I was over the hump, wrong this morning.

Great weather for sure, I haven't done anything at all though because I screwed up my knee, can barely walk. This isn't my first rodeo with knee issues, nope, been dealing with that since I was in elementary school and first major injury was when I was in 9th grade so I now need to decide if I should see an orthopedic doc or if I just kind of wait and see if it gets better. What a hassle!

It seems especially muggy and gross today, I guess we might get the weather later, thought it was supposed to rain all day. At least there is some wind today to provide some relief. Nothing happening over my way today, I am just putting off the grocery store! I oughta go get my hair trimmed too, plenty to do and I don't have to rush to do it, I am living the life!!! emoticon

It is the 28th, seemed like ages ago we decided on it so I understand. haha

Nothing interesting this weekend, at times it seemed awfully muggy then it wasn't. I think I was just looking for an excuse to stay inside. Hope you two had a great weekend, have a great week.

Okay, just confirming it is the 28th, next Monday (not this Monday) at 11. Awesome. It is muggy but I'm still okay with this weather! Looks like we will blessed with another couple of days of cooler temps and low humidity during the upcoming week, woo hoo! How lucky is that for mid-June in mid-TN? I am needing to get a grocery list together, honestly I can wait until Monday to go there, we have meals for tonight and tomorrow night but with the rain predicted on Monday, I am thinking I ought to go ahead and do it today or tomorrow. I want to go to the market in Gallatin too but that will have to wait until next week, I don't have any immediate need to go there, I just like it! Went today to Percy Warner with friends but just walked on the road, no trails this time. It was actually pretty pleasant early on up there in the trees!

Wait a couple of hours and GO to the pool!

Muggy as all get out early this morning, didn't feel so bad when we came out at 11. We hang around after we get out, chat, drink coffee and eat cookies. Don't judge old folks haha

11 is fine with me. If you come in on Briley, it is the next block from publix and the firehouse. Baskin's is no longer there it is a jiffy lube now.

Nothing interesting here, probably head over to the market later. Really don't need anything.

Everyone have a great weekend, stay hydrated.

11 works for me if it works for you Kelly! I am excited to try a new place out! It's on Donelson near the Baskin' Robbins, is that right? Sunshine Bakehouse. I feel like they are going to have 1,000 things that I want to try.

Got my run in at Percy, a lot of walking, a little running, four stumbles, but no falls. I enjoyed it. Lots of people were there.

Looks like hot hot hot today. I will be chilling around the house. Maybe will go in the pool. Maybe to the grocery store. Who knows, today I am not making plans!

Early works for me too, that way if they are busy we'll be ahead of the crowd, and after being in the pool I'll be hungry early too. 11 or 11:30, you pick since you have to drive further.

I'll take what we've had the past few days compared to what other parts are going through. We sort of got spoiled with the nice spring for sure.

I enjoyed Percy Warner, you are wise to be aware of the terrain, so just enjoy the scenery maybe walk at a fast pace? I haven't been over there since Mayor Dean's walk thing...

Here it is FriYaY eve, hope everyone has something fun planned for the weekend.

All right, the 28th it is, I am looking forward to that! We will have to decide on a time. I am usually an early lunch person but I am also flexible with no concerns or worries, so I can meet whenever!!!

The low humidity for a few days was a nice relief, looks like the dew point is inching back up though. It is practically summer solstice so it is not a shock! We've been very blessed with beautiful weather this spring.

I am going to Percy Warner this evening for a trail run, haven't run on trails in at least three years, it will be fun. I will be slow and walking a lot until I get my footing on the different terrain!

Well, I stopped by over the weekend, thought well I didn't hit post. So started over, hit post and it didn't go, so hit it again and nada then all of a sudden a new page with an error showed up! Ugh

So instead of a long rewrite I just wanted to say I did a happy dance that you stayed in Michigan and had such a fun reunion of sorts. I think these events mean so much more after the past year+.

I have the 28th on the calendar!!! Looking forward to it!

Try to stay cool in this heat, will stop by later. Welcome home!

Hello Hello Hello!!! Got back from Michigan yesterday, oh so glad I went, so glad I took your advice Kelly! Saw my aunts and uncles, cousins (and their kids), sister, BIL, niece and one nephew. And of course my parents. I was busy busy busy doing stuff, had dinner one night with one of my BFFs.

Kelly, I haven't flown in almost a year and a half, what is up at BNA? And I guess LaGuardia has always been a disaster. I saw some Rainier cherries at Kroger a couple of weeks ago and then I found a few for my mom in Michigan, they are the bomb.com~~~ What a treat!

Yeah, I am really hoping that SP will add teams to the new product, that is my favorite thing, and I don't use the rest of it much at all anymore. What is really crummy is that it won't be available anymore to people outside of the US. I have one SparkFriend who is on a team and we communicate from time to time and I get a lot of joy and pleasure hearing from her so that really stinks.

Kelly, what about the 28th (Monday) for lunch - not this coming Monday but the next one. We can text and figure that out.

I've been so busy today and still have a ton to do! Glad work is not an issue, I would never be able to get all of this done (let alone take off spontaneously for Michigan and stay for a week). I had to do laundry, groceries, I went to the produce place in Gallatin, stopped by the car dealership for something, fixed dinner, need to clean up around here, just STUFF!!! It's a good busy though and I don't have to panic about it since I don't have to WORK!!!!!

GOOD for you - stay a little longer your folks are not done spoiling you yet. haha
Really, I am homesick from being back from NY not even a full day but not enough to move back (that is always the case with me anyway). The mess at BNA takes the sails out of wanting to fly. LaGuardia is still as big if not bigger mess with their terminals, not even an improvement over the past two years.

All we can do with sparks is let them know how we feel about this, it stinks but I am not surprised they are doing it. I remember they said eventually it'll happen if we continued to block their revenue attempts. They weren't happy with one or two ads per page, it went to covering it seemed like every bit of white space including on some teams covering their logo. (They covered our Blue Star Moms Team logo) Too much for too little because I didn't see much difference whenever they "improved" something. When was that? A long time ago I guess.

If it happens we can still be in touch through emails and lunches.

Meanwhile, enjoy Michigan. I was thinking the other day have their version of Rainier cherries hit the market yet? I've only seen sweet ones out of CA, nothing like the original.

I just heard that SparkPeople is going away. I am terribly sad about this. Kelly, I am in Michigan, thank you for your advice to come. I did and I was going to come home on Monday but now I will stay until Wednesday or Thursday. It is great to not have a job so I can do things like this! I am still in shock about SP. I've been checking in for years, I will miss this!!!

Luvin' your profile picture!!! Jobless looks good on you.

Yesterday was a perfect day for a race, saw on fb that you improved your time so high five!

I'd love to be out kayaking but my knee doesn't like to be bent like that for long and I am always afraid of not getting my lard arse back into it if I flipped it. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it, do I see a new toy in to the future?

Even though it is overcast it is nice out this morning.

Sent you a sparkmail.

Okay, I need to find a time to come down and meet you Kelly! I don't have your number so once I figure something out I will send you something via Facebook Messenger.

Got in the pool a little, I guess that was last weekend? The past few days it was so windy and so much debris flew in, should have had it ready for today since it is so nice but didn't. Yesterday went out on the lake on my friends' houseboat and we kayaked, my first time kayaking. That was fun, and 10k race this morning. I am feeling tired but in a good way. Went and got more strawberries this morning, this might be the last of the local ones, so yummy!!!!

Pick a date and time, since I'm only a few miles from there I can pretty much do anytime! Nice car, heard good things about them.

Geez, even I'd have that AC cranked if it were 80 in here!!! Interesting how Lizzie reacted. In here it has gone up 2 degrees since noon (77)I've turned every ceiling fan going so that helps but I came close when I got home earlier. It feels like a sauna out there and not sure I want to go to the market today. Other than that nothing new or even interesting on the horizon for the weekend. Have a good one, have you dipped into your pool yet?

Today is the 21st day
of the 21st week of the
21st year of the
21st century.

Yep, no rain and no rain in sight, yikes, we do need some. And I think we are going to get the humidity with the heat that is on the way. Right now it is warm but pleasantly so, but those dew points are going to rise. I finally turned the AC on, hubby never once complained but it was in the 80s in here so I know he was too warm. Turned on the ceiling fans in the bedroom and Lizzie who is FEARLESS saw that and ran and hid under the bed! But just for a minute.

Yeppers, got a new Subaru Forester. So far I am loving it. Kelly we just need to plan a lunch date and meet over at the Sunflower place on Donelson!

Looks like somewhere else got rain so far but it is still cloudy out this way so hopefully we will get some later. Yup, the heat is coming I heard early as next week UGH. Gotten so spoiled with the nice days we've had. I've got to get our sprinkler guy out to wake up our system, meanwhile the new rose bushes will get drinks manually, I just do not feel like hauling the hose to the front yard. We have a year round place that has nice produce in Hermitage.

Did you get new wheels?

I'll try to remember to let you know the next event at Buchanan. A few years ago they did a blacktop 50s sox hop that was so much fun, maybe they will do it again soon.

Nothing much new here, so enjoy your day!

I had forgotten about the Buchanan Log House. I will have to be watching out for that event next year.

Maybe a tiny bit of rain this morning? If it doesn't evaporate before it gets here! We could use it. And it doesn't look like much rain coming up in the forecast either. Hot is coming though. I am sure the ACs will be on soon if they aren't already!

It's hard to believe it's already mid-May, senior graduations are already happening, school will be out in a just a week and a half or so.

I think our Farmer's Market starts this weekend. Usually they are pretty light on produce early in the season and then it gets better and better later in the summer. I went to Hendersonville Produce last week, I love that place and they just get better all of the time.

How lucky to have another nice day, even though the temp is higher at least there is a breeze. The Buchanan Log House had a funraiser today and it was very well attended, thankfully. This one probably far exceeds the attendance of anything they've done the past 4 years. I noticed yesterday that folks were a lot friendlier everywhere.

I hear you on local strawberries, I've picked up some up there probably the same one you went to and they were really really good (ate way to many on my way home). In St. Augustine there is a huge hydroponic strawberry farm that produces great strawberries. Our farmers market is on the smaller side so far but I think things will pick up .

Regular gas today seems to be back to normal, I just stopped and was able to fill er up, didn't even have to wait in line (otherwise would have just kept going) I try not to let the gas go below 3/4 empty.

Enjoy the rest of the evening, have a great one tomorrow! The closet can wait, at least that's what I told mine all week. haha

Good Morning, looks like another beautiful spring morning. I am loving this weather, can't believe it is already halfway through May though. Last week (I am sure I forgot to mention this), I went up to Gallatin to get fresh strawberries at a farm. Oh my, such divine sweetness and so tender. Not like the hard tasteless things at the grocery store! Hope I can get some more before the season is out, but we are just two of us so we don't eat them super fast. I never had time to do that before, this is just wonderful! Did a deep cleaning on the guest bathroom, and now am working on cleaning and organizing my clothes, will be getting rid of some things. Have read a couple of books (one fiction, one on running) and did some hours of continuing education.

Oh Kelly, my parents had an oil furnace back in the day, not only was it expensive but that furnace would break a lot! I would wake early in the morning to an ice cold house. Luckily the guy who fixed them lived just down the street and of course back then you could just give him a jingle, on the house phone of course, and he would be there in a few minutes. I don't remember when they converted to natural gas heat but it has been a long time. I keep the house very warm in the summer and very warm in the winter, ha!

Any trouble getting gas? We haven't been going anywhere for so long, guess we aren't too concerned and we have almost a full tank which should last us a while unless we have to go anywhere unexpected. I think by this weekend or early next week it ought to be back to normal.

Sunday's weather was something else, glad it calmed down yesterday. Guess it'll be warming up as the week goes by. The air doesn't go on til the house goes above 76, I know...the house is cold in winter and warm in summer most of the time. I think we got used to doing it that way when we had electric heat and air, ouch; even bigger ouch was having oil heat, that was a budget buster even in the 70s.

Let's try to get together sometime soon, that was awhile ago wasn't it? Gwenn, if you are still lurking here stop in and say hello! Bonnie you too!

Enjoy your day everyone!

Happiest of Mondays!!! Hope it was a good Mother's Day for everyone. Kelly, did you go see Kyle and the family?

Okay, Sunflower Bakehouse, yes! That sounds so interesting, we will have to get together sometime and check that out Kelly, I would love that! Last time we had lunch together was at Taziki's with Gwenn, that was a good long time ago.

Seems like we did get plenty o' rain yesterday, thought I heard we didn't get as much in April as usual, but no worries about things staying green, I am really kind of enjoying these lower than average temperatures because the AC doesn't need to be on.

I'm not sure how to spell it either, I don't think they care long as we do business with them if only one cookie at a time! You've got the same traffic messes up by you "amazed" at how everything has grown in the past 20 years.

You are thinking of Sunflower and you were right on with where it is. When you decide to try it, let me know I'll meet you.

Lousy weather today, feel sorry for those who planned on outdoor stuff. Although right now here the first wave of that storm has blown through and a little bit of sun is peeking out.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Happy Friday!!! I haven't been to Mount Juliet in ages, I should go check it out, but yikes, traffic was already so bad there, I am sure now it is worse. We have a Crumbls (I honestly cannot remember the spelling), we have been once but talk of going often since they have different flavors every week. I would go and get ONE cookie, hubby wants to go get four or five, so I am staying away from there because I would eat all of them!!!

You all have such a good Farmer's Market in Donelson Kelly, I will be checking out ours here and I have wanted to go to the big on in NashVegas for years, and never had time so I am going to put that on my list for later. There some place in Donelson that has super healthy food, totally can't remember what that is called, I think on Lebanon PIke not too far from Publix maybe? On that side of the road (but definitely not sure about all of this) and I want to try that place out, HEALTHY food.

Already you are sounding more relaxed. You love the outdoors, work outside when it is nice and inside when the weather isn't. I know, we all notice things when we aren't under the gun with a different to do list, for now enjoy yourself.

Happy to hear you all came through that storm, compared to what went down to our north and east we lucked out again.

Chilly this morning but it is turning out to be a nother nice day, going out to grab some more vitaD. I didn't go in because I saw the sign too late but Mt Juliet has a crumbles or whatever it's called. That shopping area is becoming another Cool Springs madhouse on both sides of the interstate. Amazon is building a mega complex near there (it can be seen from outer space I hear) so it'll be interesting with the accidents on I40 even though they are widening it.

Still nothing new around here, Donelson farmer's market opens for the season tomorrow, hope the weather holds that is about all for around here.

Good Morning!!! Hello!

Yes, it has been good, since I even worked on my vacations days this is really nice, very relaxing and I am doing things around the house but more leisurely of course! I did do some work for them on Sunday but that was all.

Hope no one had any issues with that crazy weather we had yesterday. Nothing bad here in our immediate neighborhood but that was kind of scary.

I'm working on lists, things to do, organizing, cleaning. This house needs it, all I did was work, this place is so neglected. Outside needs help too.

Hope you are enjoying your down time AND that the office is leaving you alone! Hopefully now that you are not so stressed your bod will relax and maybe start to heal a bit. Just a random thought.

Nothing new on this side of town.

Happy Saturday and I am DONE with work, for now. We will see how things go, not sure if I will look for something else later or not but for now, NOT. Nice day, I got out and walked/ran around here with a friend, my sciatica is still annoying me, probably worse for the wear now but if I put my mind to it, I at least now have the time to do my exercises, and that will help! Picked up a few groceries, just a couple of things to get by for a couple of days, now I need to plan some meals and cook at home.

Well, short timer hang in there, amazing how much they are putting on you...can't help but wonder if they are trying to lighten their current workload knowing you worked so hard.

Mid term spring is on the horizon, we will remember what it is like to sweat when not exercising for a brief while. Crazy.

I was back at the pool soon as Cooper opened private (guess that's what they are called) last summer. How's your sciatica?

Absolutely nothing new in this part of town, take care!

Glad you got a new PC Kelly, hope you get the mouse issue straightened out though because that would be a huge pain. Glad you can still use the pool Kelly, I know you enjoy that! Only a few more days for me at work and I am working more hours than never but soon it won't be a concern anymore. Wonder when second spring will be back? Monday I think because I heard it will be very warm again.

Good for you, and that s great you have potentials on the horizon...yes if you feel you eure.

Forgot about that craft sale, at this point any time we can get out and about is worth the effort, even if it is physical.

The pool according to management is ours until next Mar, then it'll be decided if they will consider to continue. Hope so. It is now called Sonesta, they are out of FL.

I'm on a new laptop and the old mouse will not install so I am having a hard time typing because I tend to rest my hands on that pad or whatever it's call and the curser is having it's way jumping all over, etc. There was no instruction book unless the geek guy forgot to put it in the box after set up. So I am going to go do something else because my patience is wearing thin.
Have a great week everyone!

Worked a million hours last week, tired tired tired and validates my decision to quit. Have already had some potential opportunities but I still think I should wait.

This weekend was the consignment craft sale, we had to go out to Murfreesboro this afternoon to get the stuff that didn't sell. I made a little but not sure if I will do it next year as I am not sure it is worth all of the effort to prepare the stuff and take it to Murfreesboro and then go back and get what didn't sell. But it was a fun field trip.

How is everyone else doing? You still here Portia? Kelly, has the pool over there shut down yet? Is the name of the hotel going to change?
