Keep a book or two next to your favorite patio or porch chair. Nothing better than a good book, a glass of your favorite drink and some relaxing time on the patio or porch...

Hey readers, so sorry for my spotty answering of your comments. For the past several months I've been in and out of wifi as I travel. It's feat enough just to get a post up. But that does NOT mean I don't love you! Keep commenting. It's good for the soul.
