Good Lord! See what happens when you don't follow the discussion board? I had no idea that there was a gathering brewing. Were I not headed out for Taiwan the following week on family business, I'd insist that wkdpanda place me on his manifest. This instant. What a lovely weekend I'll be missing! :-(

But alas, I am required elsewhere. So drink a toast for me instead and we'll vow to make up for my absence in California in July. I'll buy first round!

I've thought about that since I love to garden and it would be nice to have a long growing season, but my husband (he who hates everything) cannot abide humidity. I think we're a hopeless case.

Move to AZ, it's a dry heat. If you can't stand the really hot temps, there is always northern AZ.

Also ...

5) Wear a mask and gloves. Sanitize your keyboard frequently. The CyberPub flu is going around.

6) Check your Water Heater and HVAC system. Lots of flooding and dead heaters going around.

Yeah, I know. I starting running a fever yesterday afternoon. I think I sweated it out last night. But I'm taking it easy today.

I would say watch out for the heater, but you guys had problems with it last year.


How far did you run the fever? Around the block a couple of times, or down to the local park?

Let's hope it is only through the Cyber Pub, and not actual contact.

Hope you feel better soon.

Oh, no worries on any of those counts. kkv123 is a frequent lurker, just not a frequent commenter.

You have to admit, the rpm tours hit capacity in just over 24 hours. If I had been off the boards for the wrong day or two, I would naturally assume I could not join in, and would come to the pub for commiseration.

Nah, too hot for polarbears. Really.

It was a great time and place to be last week. Other than running back to the car from the St. Pete pier in pouring rain. My jeans were dry the next day when my daughter took us to see her lemurs, so it worked out fine.

Did I mention the deck is southern exposure? I built a 4x4 garden box on it, in which I grow herbs, tomatoes, peas, green beans... I don't have the patience for the fall harvesting things like melons though. You can start seedlings indoors in the former burlap room as it gets great sun exposure and makes for a good green room, and then growing season goes from about may til october. Low humidity, too!

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"
