Greetings from Central Carolina.
Had a really nice weekend: Live music, Great food, Excellent company
(If you see this diary, it means that the Pool had no obvious attendant on the schedule. Or that I missed the memo. I found the key in the parking lot and now the gate is open. If the Real Cheers and Jeers shows up, please migrate over there.)
