Not much pay (in fact, nothing) but a chance to participate in history!
An opportunity for one of our volunteers to post for the 200-day Season Window on Saturday.
(Who will it be??)
Is the volunteer required for both Saturday and Sunday? Or does the cottage only take one day to prepare for the summer season?

Either way, Crown, I will offer my services to volunteer.

Another day, another dollar...Or there abouts...I had another fire last night...I feel the weather warming so I want to get as many in before it warms up...I spent the better part of last night fighting with electronics that advertise all these great features but you need to be an engineer to figure them all out...I get so frustrated...My wife won't even sit in the room with me while I'm doing things like this...I gotta learn to calm down...Airplay...that's what I want to do, and it won't work...everything else does though and the sound is incredible!

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good morning everyone!

Happy 'Pines Day! Midweek is only a few hours away. As always, it is difficult to believe that time moves by so quickly. At the time of our next 'Pines Day, we will be welcoming a new month and ready for May flowers to bloom!

I'm a little sore today. I had a nice run on the treadmill as I continue to rehab. I have another run today and then therapy tomorrow. I have said this a lot before, but I really hope this is my last visit. In my opinion, I am going to have to either get an injection and/or physiotherapy sometime next week. I believe there is something in my knee that active release therapy cannot repair.... but I am not a medical expert. Summer is coming and I am really hoping to be ready to go by mid-June but that seems as if it could be pushed back all the way to mid-July. Quite disappointing, but there isn't much I can do...

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great Wednesday. Great to see the "open" sign on the 'Pines once again!

Good Wednesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I went with the family to nearby Statesboro yesterday afternoon to take Jacob to his guitar lessons. Then we went to Wal-Mart for an hour...ugh.

After that, we picked up some dinner to take home. Bourbon chicken (which doesn't have actual bourbon in it) is really good stuff. Nancy made fun of me because I like to eat stuff like that with chop sticks. It makes me eat slower so I can't just shovel it in like I do with a fork. I had enough leftover for lunch today. Win!

The kids have to accrue 25 hours per year of community service (usually help with needy, church functions, etc.) while in HS to move on to the next grade, and Jacob is 7 hour short. So the City of Bellville is working him this week. He's picking up trash by the road, and running a weed-eater. That'll teach him to wait till the last minute!

I hope y'all have a great day!

Thinking of you, Brent. Praying for your knee to heal.

Good Morning everyone!

Today Wayne (Snow-in-Texas) and I celebrate our Anniversary! I think we should have our Anniversary dinner at the Pines! I wonder if Carl will surprise us with something special?

I hope you all are having a splendid day!

Hope you get sorted with a keyboard ~}

I do not buy much w/out coupons & sales together. when I said tripled up to $.99 that means, a manufacturer coupon is for $.75 off bread, since it's under $.99 the coupon will triple to $2.25 ($.75x3), the bread costs $2.49 on sale, I only pay $.24 for it. I am hoping to get several freebies today also.
I hope this makes sense to you. I'm not good @ explaining w/out being accompanied by illustration, lol.
love you girl, have a fabulous day!
HIya back yip think i got that like money of coupons, can they be used even if the item is on a sale price as well
And am shocked at th e price of a bread. that sounds really expensive. over here a loaf of bread is from 99p to £1.20 .
Does it not cost a lot to buy 10 newpapers. what am trying to say is by the time you buy the papers to get the coupons does it still make it worth while

Hello everyone. Things are going good here, but I'm ready for the weekend! This is a very busy week.
We may head to our local amusement park Saturday for our second trip of the season. We used our season passes on opening day several weeks ago and the place was packed! My daughter rode her first rollercoaster and she loved it! She wants one that goes upside down. So, we may try to go back this Saturday. My son loves the rides that spin around, so I'll spend a good protion of the day very dizzy!
Anyway, I'm already looking toward the weekend! Hope you all have a good Wednesday!
