Good morning, guys.

Sounds like you're living the dream, Mark. Soak it up. Have a beer for the rest of us.

Kwak, it sucks when they show-up early. So long as they don't stay too late, right?

Good morning,

To each their own, Mark. When it comes to Florida I'm of the "been there done that" mentality - though my wife would envy you. Our Floridians are coming up here to avoid the heat, even if they happened to send it on ahead of them. I'm dreaming of going to Colorado and have designs on buying a tent.

TwoCubs, they're slated to arrive sometime around the afternoon rush hour. The house is half ready but we have a ton of meetings today. Grandpa better have his hearing aid turned on because I don't need the TV turned up to 100 decibels and listen to him pontificate. If he wants to do that he can sit in on our calls since that's one area of expertise that he doesn't contribute; he's a retired elementary school principle and we're sweating on getting Justin accepted to a new school. Back in his heyday they'd paddle the bad kids.

Morning.

Kwak, does your TV have bluetooth? If so, get him some ear buds. Then no one else has to hear the TV at least.

That's just part of the issue. They've been retired for 18 years now so working virtually isn't familiar to them. They also tend to just need the TV on for background noise.

Morning. WTH? My son has decided to sleep-in for the second time all summer, but my daughter, for the first time this summer, is up before 6am.

Not winning.

My back would agree with you, Mark - but I do have an air mattress! What can I say? I like nature and hate being in crowds.

BTW, Good morning. There's a break in the rain and I'm getting out of the house.

Good morning, guys.

The neighbors down the street asked me to clean/check on the pool while they are out for the next few days (we get lots of frogs). So, we get to use the pool for the next few days. The kids are thrilled.

Good morning from the northern bed & breakfast.
