2) Ray is thoughtful and asked if Dad and Paul would like to come over for supper on Sunday. He's going to slow-BBQ a roast beef (4 hours) with woodchips. MmMmm!
3) we spent the day outside yesterday cleaning up the yard and burned old tree branches and bushes and old wood for hours. Felt great to get that accomplished!
4) early morning newspaper delivery. Yup, we still get the physical paper
5) a great first week of vacation for Ray
