Here’s your warning ! The Highway Patrol is out in force during the upcoming July 4th weekend. Have a blast but if you imbibe, hand the keys to someone who did not. Beware if your boating as well. The patrols on the lakes will be ramped up as well.
I will be on vacation next week. No big plans but I intend to sleep in (at least 6am) . I might play a little golf, might go on a day trip or two but mostly I plan to chill. The Blog will return Monday July 13th. If nobody else loves you, I do !
