Summer..vacation? Not hardly!
Most people's summer vacations look like this: Mine look more like this: Boy does my cat have it right! In the last week we have: Set the alarm on both Sat and Sun mornings last weekend for 4:30am so that The Boy could be on the beach at 5:30am with his scuba gear to complete... Continue Reading →
