Wayne Martin no festivals for me this weekend, Wayne. And it's okay as I hate crowds. I've got three properties to get on the market in the next couple of weeks and a ton of work to get it all ready.

Hi Nina:

I bet things are off and running today for this fun event for the holiday weekend. Hard to believe it's September and summer is closing out in just 3 weeks.

Have a great weekend!
