Yes, I'm feeling a bit of it as I had promised to post about the Fourth of July.  The most I have the energy to say about it is that it was fun, hectic, and managed to include a massive thunderstorm right in the midst of parade time.

None of the celebrations were called off, even with the storm, and everyone seemed to take all the lightning and thunder without much of a thought of safety.

As you have seen, I've included a couple of my favorite pictures.

Drowning in the Sea of Key

Oh my goodness.

The norm is about a dozen or so sets of keys coming in for work each month.
Today there was a total of 11 sets.  What is today?  The 13th?  So far this month there have been 16 sets!  19 more days left...

I'm tired.

Not complaining (too much) because having work is a good thing.

But I am tired.

She Loved Flowers

Here's an email I received Wednesday morning. Changes I made to eliminate names are indicated in a different color.

Hi Deb:
This is a difficult e-mail for me.  Sorry to have to bring you the news that your aunt passed away this morning.  "Caregiver lady" specifically asked that we NOT let you know.  I am going against her  wishes since I think it appropriate that you and your mother are aware of your aunt's passing.  I would appreciate it if you would try to not get me in trouble for letting you know.
