  2. Hello VGW. How I've missed you. :)

    Marathon work week ended, and bestest friend arrived for the weekend. So now finally finding time to stop and wave tiredly. It's been a great visit, and I dread her leaving. Now I return to the work week, and am hoping I can keep the working hours to a reasonable level.

    Hope your agent situation has improved, Maria.

    Love these words, Jim! The power of position and punctuation. :)

    And hoping the rain has taken a break. We had 100 here the past couple of days, but a cool front is blowing in. 90's today, 80's tomorrow, woo hoo!

    Finally bought a car - did I tell you that already? A newer version of my other one - love Toyota Solaras. I'll try to post pix, etc. at my place this week. Just glad the ordeal is over.

    Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there!

  3. Wild violets! Seems like our rogue white ones are getting more and more numerous each spring.

    Yay Beth for new car! May you get many years and miles out of it.

    Spent much of yesterday levelling out an area for the patio & laying down the rubber tiles. Got the chairs assembled as daylight called time on me. Still have to assemble the table. Maybe after Mason's awake.

    Later!
