Good morning Beryl, Jenn, Ardyth, Kathy.
What a morning I have a job seeing the keys on my computer it is so dark and raining cats and dogs.
I do not think my landscapers will be doing much today.
My son returns from Monaco this evening, so from a 28c back to at the moment 10c.they will need their thermals on.LOL. Off to feed the cat now in the pouring rain at least the car will get a wash.
See you all later. bigsmile bigsmile blowkiss

Morning Ice! At 2:15 am EDT I was awakened by loud thunder accompanied by very heavy rain that lasted until around 2:45. Fortunately, we did not lose power. I could not get back to sleep so at 3:15 I got up.

Good morning ice, I can hardly believe the miserable weather you are having this summer. Sure wish it would turn around so you could get some sunshine and warmth. Your son will want to turn around and head right back to Monaco I think. shocked bigsmile Just today left for you going to feed the kitty at least. contentsmile

Good morning Ardy, I wanted to tell you because of you we went to Burger King yesterday! Since you posted about going to McDonalds I’ve had it on my mind…lol I do not go often to those places as I know it is not healthy food. I got a grilled chicken sandwich with fries and Denny a big burger, don’t think it’s called a Whooper that is McD’s.

Good morning Kathy, oh please be careful in that kind of hot weather. fire We are on the cool side here, I wore jeans the past two days as it was a bit cool for shorts. We can feel that change in the air, mornings a bit more cool than in July. That is always the way in August. Keep hydrated and in a/c my dear friend. doubleheart

Good morning, awake and made it to HI just before Halley arrives. She is hollering for her fish now. I would love to get in that little boat and paddle around the bay this morning. Does anyone know another cam for HI. I see pictures posted from different angles not seen on this cam? We have a problem with the pipe under shower in our RV. It cracked yesterday and we drove a long distance to the dealership where we bought it. They didn’t have the part ( though they said they did on the phone ). Sent us to… Read more »

Morning Jenn! I am so sorry about the cracked water pipe under the RV and hugely disappointed in the dealer having you drive there just to say they don’t have the part that they said they had cry

Thank you Kathy. It seems to be the way of things anymore. The guy was too lazy to look if they actually had the part. When you get someone who is very helpful and efficient you are so grateful anymore. I know I am. They said they are booked into October for an appointment for service! Denny said, I can do the work I just need the part! We have had a slow leak in that area and Denny is always checking it. When it cracked yest. and he took it off he saw it had been cross threaded when… Read more »

Good morning Beryl, Jenn, Ardyth, Kathy.
Heavy rain overnight but the sun is shining at the moment.
The landscape gardeners are turning up this morning to start on the top half of the garden, it will be largely maintenance free. Costing an arm and leg but you cannot take it with you so they say.
Tomorrow is looking very wet just right for the gardeners. cry
No idea how long they will take but it looks good on paper.
Beryl hope you are getting better. blowkiss bigsmile

Hi Jenn..Our landscapers are a local father and daughter, she is amazing the work she is capable of
doing, already in a few hours she has lifted loads of old paving slabs and is now levelling the ground. I do like to support local talent if possible. cool blowkiss

Hi Ardy…The top half of the garden is being landscaped with some fancy paving over half and fancy gravel for the other half so a nice place to sit out on.
When it is finished I will post a pic on FB. bigsmile
