Turn the heat on!

This amazing weather continues.  Got home from work yesterday at 4 only to find our house at 64 degrees, so last night turned on the furnace, hopefully for one of the last times this season.

Are we a step closer to knowing who our next coach is?

Yesterday's quiz question answer, It's My Turn.

What A Sunday!

It was fun getting out and cutting the grass yesterday.  Will I say that come August, probably yes.  It is the one thing I do that cuts me off from the rest of the world for 70 mins. as I cannot hear my cell phone.

Anyway, back to work Monday.  What don't have a new coach yet.  But I do have a cool story on "Where's Waldo".

The Weekend Arrives

Is this the weeknd you start cutting the grass and jumping into some other household chores that you haven't tackled since last November?

Yesterday's quiz question answers Led Zep and U2.

Have agreat weekend.   We're on the radio from 5 til 10 and streaming right here.

Thanks Lee Marcus!

Thanks to Lee Marcus for changing his schedule around the last few days that enabled me to spend a few full days with my family.  With Jennifer and Christopher getting older, summer jobs, etc. this past week will be the only time this year we were able spend a week together.  Time moves on so quickly.
