feelin' like summer

so i've been working in the sweat shop, bought a new oscillating floor fan which helped a tad by moving hot air around while my exhaust fan attempted to push the hot air out….i think I’m going to be working a lot at night this summer! Trying to wait until I just can’t take it before the AC gets put in the window. Anyway, worked on some new products, watch for new post soon, and started to scan our family slides that I finally got from my brother Scott. I wanted to post these three….my sister and I are cooling off in my Maumau’s backyard in Hagerstown; Loving the bib I got on for Christmas at my Aunt Anna’s house with my cousin Cathi and loving that wrapping paper from the sixties while looking at my sister’s goods from Santa!
