Gotta say that I love my summer.  It was great and it was all about work, fun, and most importantly...GOD AND FAMILY!  We had a lot of fun, and I think that I hate school more than the kids.  I thought I was done with homework when I graduated law school....  Mostly I like the freedoms to do what...
It's been a while as my internet is on and off...and as I have been as busy as ever. One of my favorite Friday Night Tunes Ever....Love this band. Called Cloverton. Here's a raw version of the song....called....TAKE ME TO THE BEAUTIFUL.... Hope you like it like I do!

So we just got back yesterday from our "summer vacation."  We spent it in Door County.  We have a farm just south of Kohler, but we're on a land contract and, as a result, are spending less and less time there as we proceed in transitioning to the new buyers living their dreams.  So....in an effo...

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
