Yes, two weeks and school starts again. Ugh!  Hope I live to see it.

I went from the back pain to a respiratory problem that doesn't seem to be getting better just worse. Medicines are not cutting it.

The remodeling is still not done. We decided to go ahead and use the tongue and groove paneling for the walls. It is different than what we put on the ceiling but the same color.  Wow! The cost of remodeling has shot up to almost the limit of the budget. I don't foresee have any left over for another job.

The new picture window has been ordered and will take three to four weeks to get here. Then we wait for the installer to make time to do that.

I have been trying to read Joseph Finder's Vanished, but just don't have the time to sit and read it all at once.  It seems to be interesting as I want to get back to it to see what is going on.

He has several out and they are all great reads.  Check him out. I am sure you will find them to be good.

After getting the first three chapters on the novel re-written, I have not had the time to do any more.  I must get back to that too, as I really wanted it done this summer, but that is not going to happen now maybe by Christmas.

I guess I should look for another place for the Blog as this site doesn't give you much room, so no pictures can be posted with the entry.  I would post a picture of the room we are remodeling if it would allow it.

Okay enough about me, how about you?  What have you been up to?

Leave us a comment on how summer has been treating you. We would love to hear from you.

Until next time,

July is supposed to be the hottest month and yet we have nights in the 60's.  Next Tuesday is supposed to be 68 for a high. Not really a hot summer, but a lot better than last winter.

They say trouble always hits in three's, but here it has hit in four's.  First we find the shower leaking (for quite some time). It has been replaced with an even better one. Then we find the picture window broken (still not replaced). The car was next. Four new tires fix it. Now the refrigerator's water line will not work.

To top it all off, while working on the remodeling of the shower room, my back, which I hurt back in 1976 while serving in the Air Force, decided to go out really bad. So far it has taken three trips to the Chiropractor. Now only the neck is killing me. And then next week I believe it is I get to go see if I do have the big "C".

So, guess you could say we have been hit by the six's instead of the three's.

Been doing a lot of reading lately to help me decide how to fix the story I am writing. Guess, I will be back working on that for several hours a day before long.

What have you been up to lately?  Is anyone doing anything wonderful this summer?

Leave a message below and let us all know what is going on in your life.  It really is not too hard to leave a message.

Almost 1800 people read the last Blog, so there are many who would be interested in what you have to say.


Until next time,
