Fog remains,visibiltiy has improved somewhat with a slight draft from NE, temp humid 16C, fog the order of the day, with chance of showers or Tstorms over next day or so.

Emily txted over noon hour to advise what she will NEED to complete her room whilst in residence. She must plan on going back in a couple of weeks. A mini-fridge, TV and microwave will be just fine, as CHUNKS mentioned the vehicle is becoming full, the pickup is looming as the vehicle to make the move with.

Plants starting to give it up, a combination of weeks of great weather, and heat have allowed them to go through their cycle with no problems.

Dear Rob:

David has given you man advice - TAKE THE TRUCK - and as I said from experience too, you will be LUCKY if you get everything in the truck. Her car, plus yours, will have STUFF in it too. Next you will get a call saying: 'can you drive three hours and come up and bring home the STUFF I don't need right now - our room is too cluttered?????

You have only begun to fight and trust me Ems is not going to be any better than any of ours. Good luck. At least if you can't make it in the winter I am closer so can go up and then visit Sarah at the same time. That will work.

David mentioned 'muggy'. He lives on an island, as do you, so just try to imagine what it is like here. I guess Fredericton is beyond your imagination for the heat right now. We are sending up a stand oscillating fan for Sarah. She is dying. P.s. that was one of the items we had to make a return trip to buy for her. Her dorm room was so hot in September it was a nightmare. You might consider a tower one for Em if on Sale at Home Hardware. Takes up less room.

Well, much to do (about nothing :) so have to get with it.

Word. Chunks.

p.s. If you see Ken I. (DFO) ask him if he made it to the poetry reading at the museum last week. You will hear a tale that will keep you laughing for a week.

Rob just read what Emily needs. I can't believe I survived without any of those things. Even my son only had the TV. Life has changed and Emily's group really does need those things. They have so much more to learn in a short time. I am glad I am past that stage of life. Just think they don't even have to go spend hours in the library.

Good luck packing and acquiring.

Good luck with your messy geese friends. I remember the Colorado State University campus during the geese times....ugh!

Morning,
And a wet one it is indeed. Fog thick as pea soup until 6:30 AM when the heavens broke open. If you get this rain the geese mess on your lawn will be gone. Some thunder/lightening but not what one would expect considering how hot and muggy it has been the last 3 weeks. Cooler weather moving in NW part of country headed our way later this weekend. It has been so hot/muggy we are considering AC for the bedroom for next summer.

No change in our price as of yet. Our hauls are headed downward and we get rumors of a hint of a price increase but no such luck.

Rachel due stateside this Sunday and Emily in her last 2 weeks of summer internship. Island fair was held last Tuesday and successful. Lots of folks with kids or who are teachers leaving this weekend as school starts soon in many parts of the US the week of the 8/20.

Take the truck and make arrangements to rent a trailer if you want to get all moved to Fredricton in one trip. How a suitcase can multiply tenfold is beyond me. Also, when kids leave for college, you fill a truck with their gear and yet their rooms remain stuffed to the hilt is a question for the ages.
