OK, everyone ("everyone" being Beth) -- here's a place to plan ahead for this August's drinking, swimming, pyromania, etc.

Rusty is on his way up to Eagle River right now. I am so jealous I can't stand it.

What is everyone up to this summer? My summer is all about work. Ick.

I hope this early heat keeps the water warm up North!

Re: Lucky lucky lucky

Argh, now I'm jealous too! We're up to working around the house and spending too much money on it this year. We need to work on the roof and gutters, so of course instead we reupholstered some chairs and painted several rooms, and now we're trying to get someone to come refinish the wood floors in said rooms. Which is harder than one might think... craftsmen don't return calls, evidently.

Rich is in Las Vegas this weekend and I'm holding down the fort. Of course, last weekend I was in Houston getting together with some internet girlfriends, so don't cry for me or anything. :) It's a nice break from painting. Today was gardening and the farmer's market (boring! I KNOW!).

Hope everyone is well. And yes, I hope the water is thawing this week. :)

Hey I do know a good floor guy. Like anyone you want to hire to do stuff in your home, it can be tricky to nail him down. But he does very good work. I'll send the number after I find it.

I've been gardening too. We just picked all our cherries (well the ones we could reach with the assortment of ladders) from the tree. I've got to make sure I wash and freeze those after all that work. I wish we would get some decent and consistent rain. PITA to have to water - plus as usual there are water bans in our city.

BTW Houston vs Vegas (baby!) = no contest. Rich wins!

Re: Lucky lucky lucky

Well, Rich didn't actually win anything while in Vegas, so I guess it's good he won the "who's getaway is cooler" contest. :)

We'd really appreciate the info on your floor guy, when you have a chance. I'm amazed at how difficult it is to find people who need money/work. It's another of those things that makes me feel like an old codger. ("I can remember when people *wanted* work! They'd walk ten miles in the rain both ways to get it!")
