Well, here in Central PA we are halfway through the July 4 holiday weekend. Whoopee. Oh, and we had rain last night. Lots of rain. While not a deluge, it was steady and sometimes heavy. More is expected today, with forecasters calling for cloudy skies and thunderstorms. Last night's rain will insure my lawn gets another mowing this week. Whoopee.
Business was slow yesterday at the store. I cut some blinds for a customer. That was about all the action I saw. This is not the time of year for flooring. There will be customers, however, who show up because they need a new grill and need to buy one that's fully assembled and ready to go. We all know people like this, the ones who wait until the last minute because it never occurs to them that they might want to be a little preemptive when it comes to grilling on the holiday weekend. They will also complain because we have no grills left in the mid-price range and the only grills sitting out front on our concrete apron and the high end grills, and those that might survive one barbecue.
Yesterday was also the first stage of the Tour de France! Whoopee! I do like watching it live and would love to be there. This year it starts in Spain. The opening stage took them through a number of Spanish towns including Guernica. I was waiting for the announcers to mention Picasso, or the fire bombing of that city... nada. Even a slight mention would be nice. I actually got a chance to see that infamous Picasso painting a long time ago.
