Good morning evening! I’m exhausted. Back in my sanctuary...I mean hotel room...for the night. I forgot what it was dealing with babies/toddlers. Tomorrow is going to be LONG because the toddler gets up at 5:30 and our son has to be in the office tomorrow. They want me there EARLY....umm, 5:30 isn’t happening. Grammie needs her rest! So, grammie is bringing a peace offering from the Golden Arches at maybe 7:00....plus several large coffees.

@Mike from TN, we did make an emergency trip to Aquatic Critter this evening! Nice store! Toddler had a blast. The turtles in the critter section were his favorite. I’m sure we’ll be making many more trips to Nashville in the coming months, so maybe we can meet there sometime!

Good morning.
Going to need to break out the coffee and thermos this morning. I am sleepy!
Should be a relaxed day at work today so that’s good.
really need to finish cleaning the house…but by the time I get home from work I never want to lol. Probably should just buck up and do it.

2 and a half days until my love returns home. Not that I’m counting or anything…

Have a great one everybody!

Mornin’ All!
Beautiful day here today. Finally got all of the mowing done until next week when I have to start all over again.
I think I’m going to take a drive into town and go to Lowe’s to “LOOK AROUND” ( ;) :p ) and not buy anything! Where have we heard that before? LOL!
Y’all have a great day!

Good morning,

Need to vent, ...summer time here means less folks in town, the pace slows down, locals come out and occasional European tourists meander about. Its a quiet and a relaxed, very home town atmosphere.

However, this summer is different, we have been invaded by loud, rude, bossy folks from a particular NE state. Not saying everyone from that state is annoying, but come on newcomers. Assimilate to your surroundings.

People are drawn here not just because it’s beautiful, but because we are nice, orderly, courteous and friendly.

We smile.

Don’t change the climate of my town to the climate of the state you are running away from!

Be nice, be courteous, relax and shut up.
Nothing gives them away more then loudly berating the deli counter guy or the beautician, or cutting in line, etc...

Ok, I feel slightly better. Thanks for listening.

Good Morning, Reefies!
@BeltedCoyote I have given up on cleaning my house until that floor gets ripped out. I feel like one of those hoarder people making paths between furniture, my displaced office and the fish tank buckets. I will live vicariously through you - go get those dust bunnies!!!

It's like R2R is a gold and diamond mine. The old ones dug many miles into the earth and many great treasures were found and much knowledge of their experience was saved.

New people show up and lay a shovel on the ground and expect the gold and diamonds to just jump onto it.

I just jinxed myself. I posted earlier that I was leaving town on Friday. Just now my Tunze ATO starts beeping with low water level. It will not pump the water in the sump Now I need to figure out what is wrong with it. Fortunately I do have a spare one if I can find it. :mad:

Preach on! Saw the same stuff in SC when I used to live there. I spent a lot of time trying to find the least convenient parts of the beaches so I could fish in relative peace lol

Good morning/evening again! Another exhausting day of toddler chasing.

Funny thing. My DIL takes tank sitting very seriously. I told her the water line in the middle chamber of the sump should be about an inch below the left chamber. She sent me a picture because it wasn’t “exactly” an inch. Ok, maybe it’s 7/8 of an inch! I didn’t expect her to measure it. ;Hilarious

Next, she sends me pictures of theses “creatures.” Asterina starfish. Yep, they’re in the tank and have been for years! I really appreciate her efforts. ICU nurses are very thorough (thank goodness). She is also the ONLY person allowed to mag-float other than myself and another son (NOT her husband)! ;Hilarious

Good night or good morning - wishing y'all the best whatever it is where ever you are. I finally made it to the end of my day.
