Is the new guy still studying?

When might he be ready to step in and help you?

Glad to hear that the kids are doing better.

I wish that I could.

Storms always keep me from getting done what I want to accomplish.

The new guy is up and running but not to speed yet.

The one out sick/surgery should be back in April.

Thanks, AZ, for the red, white, and blue tribute.

Was your commute more safe today? Less of a hassle? *HUGS*

I imagine...your storms last so much longer than ours do!

I hope your garden is very successful this summer!

Last night was the last time we get to use our sprinklers. From
now on, we can only water for 2 hours on Thursday nights, using
a hand-held sprayer with a trigger that turns on the water.

2 HOURS a WEEK! It’s going to look bad here if we don’t get
rain. :(

Her name is Ann, and she has, indeed, gone over to the dark side.
