Check Cashed

Our agency cashed our check.  Another couple grand out the door.  Only several, several grand more. 

We are still waiting on the I171H.  Slow down is what we are told.  

I found a the perfect house for us online.   Maybe.

We were at Maddens this week on vacation.  It was so nice to get away.  Doggie is exhausted for doggie hotel.  He’s sleeping on the floor in front of me, all mellow and relaxed.   Making doggie dream noises.  Joe is down at the farm today chopping down trees.  Good for him.

Still hot in MN.
