Good Morning . . .

 

The wise man can pick up a grain of sand and envision a whole universe, but the stupid man will just lay down on some seaweed, and roll around until he's completely draped in it. Then he'll stand up and go, "Hey, I'm Vine Man."

 

A pretty busy weekend for me, lots of gatherings and parties that started around Thursday - including a great "Mardi Gras & " party this past Saturday evening.  Hope everyone is enjoying the summer, or what's left of it at this point . . . are we really more than halfway through it already?
