She got a phone call from one of her neighbou...
The holiday (as it were) is over... and we're back to work.Monday was crazed leading into the 4th of July, as we tried to get everything done leading into the holidy.  Then Tuesday, was "off" (still managed to negotiate a contract)... spent the afternoon/evening calming the puppy...  and now it's...
