Holy Wow... I'm busy as hell, believe it or not. Even worked on Monday. Sad, but it needs to be done.

Got to have supper with my cousin and her family, last night. Heheheh... that was cool. It was the first time that her little girl has seen me, and she was busting me up. As soon as I walked in the door, she looks at me, points, grins, and takes off running, calling, "Mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, that... he's... your brother... who is he? Your brother is here!" So now I am again Uncle Joe. It's cool..

Supper was excellent, as was the company, and of course, they spent some time trying to talk me into making my stay here permanent. I couldn't hear much of what they were saying because of the roar of the sweat waterfall running off of me, but they said I'll get used to it. Then they insisted that if I didn't always wear the boots and jeans, I'd be much more comfortable. It gets a little strange when your own family is trying to talk you out of your jeans...

Don't know how long this is going to take, but we are making steady progress. Hopefully, we'll be able to get this thing running soon.

Hope to keep you informed, but just in case, I've asked a few folks if they would stop by and break bread with you guys.

Enjoy the company... that's what it's all about.

Two things give away your 'Northern-ness.'

Boots AND Jeans in Florida...(Don't you know they all wear flops and shorts down there?)

and calling the last meal of the day 'Supper.'

Glad you're making progress!

I Dunno. I lived in Georgia for many many years and I never ever wore shorts. Or Tennis shoe's.

Keep yer Jeans Bro. I've seen the mosqitoe's in Florida. If you don't watch your car close they'll steal yer tires off yer car. Or just steal the car.

I will say you are getting September heat right now and that's a bit unusual (Joe Luck?) HOWEVER - summer = hell there. Honest. Unless you're a beach or boat's hot. Hell hot.

And I'd pay good money to see you in flip flops. Seriously. That image'll have me grinnin' all day!

Hey, I did fine in Florida - so long as I was standing up to my neck in water... lol

Glad to hear things are coming together. :)

"It gets a little strange when your own family is trying to talk you out of your jeans"

As my blogson, I figured you'd be USED to that sort of thing by now :-)
