No, it's just a because I love you gift and we both like the design.

They brought a helper today and are kicking butt. Just found out the guy is 63 years old! I think his helper is on speed but they're getting it done. We just sent out for pizza for them and I made them some cookies earlier...

Excellent! A friend of mine told me years ago that if I will feed the folks I hire to do roofing, cement work, etc., the job will be done faster and to my specifications. I had forgotten about that until you mentioned the pizza and cookies.

Cookies? Oh yeah! Maybe I'll drive down and help them.

That sounds great-it sounds like it would be a sanctuary-peace and quiet.

Well, today we finally had some fun since moving out here to the Midwest.

Before, we had unpacking, landscaping beds, older kid issues. We did go to the beach 2x in the summer but that was in NC not here. We did go to the casino in St Louis but since I'm not a gambler I just walked around for like 3 hours while my husband played Black Jack. Never again-he can go by himself.

Today we went to an air show. We live very close to Scott Air Force Base in IL. It was amazing. The fighter jets, the huge transporters that can take can take off on a short amount of runway. It was breath taking!

Tomorrow I will post some pictures!

Sounds like a really great day. When I worked at the Navy Base, I spent a whole afternoon getting to watch the Blue Angels do practice flights from the air field across the ocean. I was right under them when they took off and it was FABULOUS! One of the most memorable days of my life.

I'm glad you are finally finding some fun things to do in your area!!

Can't wait for the pictures. Make sure and post a link on here if you end up posting them in another forum (like the photography forum or whatever) if you dont' post them directly on here.

Question Shout Out to MOVED

You getting the smoke from the fire? None of it came my way (north), so I wondered how bad it was south ...
