Labor Day, End of Summer Sales, Here comes Autumn?

I guess I missed most of summer, or was lucky enough not to be in many hot zones this year. First time I pulled out my generator was last week, only to find my A/C was not working. Lack of use? :rolleyes:

Well some good news on the A/C unit. Found a replacement unit at Target, should be a easy take out/put in being the same unit... If I installed it how I remember :rolleyes:

Was rather surprised it was $60 cheaper at Target then at Walmart :eek:

Guess it pays to shop around online ;)

I did that last year. Was up there getting the Espar worked on for a couple of days and had to wait a few days for a part to come in down at Wayne's World. So I hung out at the yard all week, and it was a blast. Got a flu shot on my birthday. Don't know if that's happening again, but I appreciated it.

The breakfast buffet is killer, and the box lunches aren't your run-o'-the-mill box lunches, either. John is a jack of all trades and a master on the grill. If you don't get enough to eat while you're there, you aren't paying attention. Go for the food, stay for the fun.

One of the things I liked best was getting to meet some of the sales people.

Unfortunately we were unable to get a provider for the health fair and flu shots for this week. We are going to try and offer it up in a few weeks. Most didn't have the vaccine yet for some reason.

This is my hat. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

I think it's time to finally retire the original hat. Replace it with one of my backups.
