    when did summer arrive ?

    Back in the sweat shop again. Vaughn you should have a song about sweat shops.
    Still waiting on my AC guy to install the unit I bought last year. I can't take this, can't take this, not another day ! , not another day ! and it's still May !!!!!!!!!!
    Don I don't see how you guys out there handle it. Maybe I should go turjkey hunting in NH for a few weeks.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    The question here is: Where did summer go?
    We had some nice warm weather then it turned to chilly and almost continous thunderstorm days. One happening right now. Hail, heavy rain, thunder, high winds, tornado warning sirens, etc.
    I would rather have the sunny 90 degree days anytime.

    We are still waiting on it out here. I've still got trees that have yet to leaf out.

    Bob I'll check to see how much longer the season is in. You might get a visit

    May 3 to May 31: Statewide NH

    Just a little late for this year. But I may look at next year now I know the season goes an extra week their. This past weekend next year would be ideal if I don't go to SD which in on the books.
    Bob do you have a good B&B close by ?

    Franks weather is almost here, as usual Little warm today, getting cooler and stormier.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Still wearing a sweatshirt. Should be 60-70's which isn't bad in and of itself.

    They say for every week we lose on the Spring side we gain on the Fall side. I think it's true

    Hopefully my daughter and her family will have their own place by then and move out. That will open up 3 bedrooms

    You would be welcome to stay here.
    I'll look into the B&B.

    You know what I like about up north , the weather in the summer. I may have to relocate LOL But I do not think the wife would go for it. If I can get her to ware shorts I may convince her someday
