Don't know how hot it has been where you live, but June was a VERY HOT month in Arboles. Then suddenly the heat was over, and now the days are lovely. Even getting a bit of rain - so needed. We are still in a serious drought, though. Allan and I look forward to the day when we can look back on these dry years and rejoice over moisture laden times. We can hardly imagine such an easy life.
Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July with your families. Because we live in such a popular tourist area there are lots of things to do over the weekend, but sometimes dealing with so many people makes it preferable to just stay home. Last year we went to Bayfield for a real small town celebration and loved it. Bet that's what we do again this year.
Hope you are having a great summer! Stay cool, and God bless you all! And God bless America. With so many of our freedoms being challenged we need to pray that our way of life survives the turmoil. We cannot take it for granted.
Lois & Allan
