Hello there to all of our retro friends! We hope that you are having a splendid day. We are delighted to have you over.

The Summer heat, humidity and afternoon storms are in full swing here in Florida. One minute is as hot as a oven, and the other minute is like the floodgates of the heavens are completely opened. The water has been covering our front lawn to the point that its' nearly impossible to walk through. Having a small boat with a couple of paddles around would not be a bad idea. In this crazy day and age the weather is more unpredictable than ever.

Now that we cover our weather forecast for the day. It's August and that means that a fun lawn party is on it's way! Nope trust me it's not going to be in my front yard, but it would be somewhere even better. Drum roll please:
