The last few days have produced a flurry of activity for me. I have company coming Tuesday and have known this for 6 weeks. Of course I procrastinated readying the house until last Friday. My favorite word these days is mañana. Retired folks can do that. However too many mañanas came and went and I worked up a sweat doing fun stuff like shampooing the carpet on Sunday afternoon. Ugh! I perused the Transylvania Summer 2016 Explorer recently received with my mail and found several fun things to do. The weather may dictate how much outdoor activity will happen. Tell ya’ all about it next week.

What’s happening with you or in the community? We’d love to hear about it if you would like to share. All news for next week has to be received by Monday evening in order to be published in the Thursday edition of the Transylvania Times
