That should be fun tonight, and you did finish in the money! Add another title to Bill's name, (VP) he seems to enjoy and be good at so many things!

It was really hot again today, looks like summer is back for a while. The deck and everything is done and looks good. We have agreed to be friends and try and do a few things together once in awhile. So I was happy he felt that way too.

Met the girls tonight, well two of them didn't come but there was still 3 of us there. I didn't know they were cooking so ate before I went. They had made chicken breast with teriyaki sauce and melted cheese. It looked good but I didn't eat any too full. One of the gals and I decided to go see the Elvis show at the Fireside theater sometime next month. We will go on a Thursday for the buffet dinner.

Hope you had a good time!

Sharon, everyone was doing nothing but complimenting Bill on how well he ran the banquet and distributed all of the prize money. I thought Bill was sick, as he went to bed as soon as he got home at 8:30. I got home a 1/2 hour later and usually when he goes to bed so early, that means he is not feeling too good. He was just extremely tired. Usually he gets home in the morning at 9 and takes a nap for 3 to 4 hours before going back in the afternoon.

He did not take a nap yesterday and was working on changing our travel plans and flight info. So that was the major reason for him being so tired. I always get so stressed out when traveling and he is always so very calm. He is so clam I just get upset in seeing his calmness. I really shouldn't though.

So that is good that everything is all finished and that you both have agreed to remain friends, and to keep the door wide open.

Yes, summer is returning in the fall. After having a mild summer, now we are getting the extreme heat. So stay cool and relax.


After all the times you have been going to that place, you should know by now that more often than none, they are going to have something good to eat. So just do not get anything to eat knowing that you will be going there. The owner sure does take good care of you all.

Very nice that everything went so well, Bill deserves to be complimented for his good job! Sometimes the right person gets the job and looks like this was the case for the banquet.

I think it's great he does all the travel arrangements. I always had to do it and thought how much easier it would be to be able to not have to worry about it. It's so nice that he remains calm too. Bill, my husband had this amazing ability also.

He has a busy schedule so I can see why he would get tired once in awhile. He is probably looking forward to this trip you have coming up to relax.

Had a meeting with my stock guy this afternoon. The market has been doing very well so I took some of the profit and put it in some safer places. Just looking ahead so that I don't lose too much if the market drops. Also sold some that weren't doing to well to cover the taxes on the good ones.

I have to take my friend's who's son had the wedding, parents to the airport tomorrow, they are going back home to Florida. They are leaving out of the Rockford airport so not such a big deal to get them there. Only thing is I only drove it once so hoping to remember how to get there. I can put the address into my car's GPS as a backup.

Friday tomorrow, WW weigh in day. Bill the carpenter had such a healthy diet that he inspired me to try and eat better also. So we will see how that worked.

Sharon, good luck on WW today. Let us keep our figures crossed.

Another hot day going to 95 once again. Now Bill for the second night in a row he went to bed early once again long before me. I am starting to get real worried about him getting sick. But he assured me that this heat is just knocking him out being outside for the period he does each day. This heat can knock us all out.

So Bill was actually Assistant VP and now he has been elevated to Executive VP For Conventions. Our travel plans for getting there is real crazy. I hope and pray that all goes well for us tomorrow. Coming back no problem, we just have to get there tomorrow. Easier said than done.

It should not be too very bad today taking your friends to Rockford. Much better than going to O'Hare.

I would be interested to hear about this fantastic diet that Bill the carpenter is doing. If it is working very well, then why not give it a go. Certainly what we are doing just now is not fully working. Up one week and down the next. He must have felt your frustration.

Stay cool,


Kathy
