Husband of the Month Award

One of our customers was given a new toy for her birthday on Friday. Kim remarked to her that she "was saving her pennies to buy one for herself".
Due to our very busy work schedule (and her dislike for driving any distances), our "vacations" are pretty much a thing of the past.
So, I came up with an idea of an "Ideal Vacation" for her. Where she could escape from the chains of her computer to enjoy herself "out in the world".
So, I went over to Lexington this afternoon and visited Fayette Mall (Which I swore many years ago to never step into again) and made the selected toy purchase.
Then, this evening while at dinner at our favorite Chinese Restaurant, I handed her a bag that I advised contained "brochures or ideas" for a vacation for her.
In the bag was a new Ipad 2.
She was shocked and brought to tears.
It was decided at that time that I should bequeathed the title of "Husband of the Month".

However, it should be noted that there is only one more day in July!

Catching up time here

Well, I've been pretty busy with work a couple of weekends, and kind of got behind on "my blogging"
Going through some of the threads I follow, I was sorry to see that there have been some health issues reported by many of the fine folks I follow on here. Hopefully, they will be able to come through the suffering very soon.
The weather here is miserable. Temps in the high 90's, high humidity, and heat index around 110.
Did escape to the cabin a couple of times for an "overnighter". Left the mutts home so I could just unwind. I was able (over two weekends) to set out some daylilys and a couple of burning bushes at the cabin, along with groundcover and mulch. Of course this work was spaced between naps and reading of my Kindle.
During this miserable weather, I'm letting the mutts stay in the cool 62 degree bombshelter down here in my dungeon (man-cave)
