Now that the celebrations are over, everything is quite at the B&B. We have a big stack of mail that isn't sorted yet and some parcels as well. I could use some help. Somebody put steaks on the grill that's a good sign that I should add one more. Steaks require music. I'll just turn on the juke box and auto select.
Now for the mail: Piglet's Newsletter, Woodshed Architecture, Lyrics to Tunes I Don't Remember, Casa Blanca Movie offer, Forestry and Pine Tree Maze Advance Technology, How To Have A Great Party When The Boss Is Not Looking, Vine Ripe Spuds Let's You Eat For Less, Sushi Habitat For Hungermania, and here is my $ check from the Tequila Bar Federation.
All the steaks are gone but mine!

Someone ate my steak , smells like cigars in here ! Hmmm? So when are we planning the next big get together? Miss having everyone here - Pook has been gone too long - miss her cats running around. Just made a big pot of coffee,cinnamon rolls are in the oven. Beautiful here today, warm blue skies, warm breeze and 75' !!

I am glad to see that you got your computer jump-started Pook. Does not take you guys long to screw-up Robo Maid. Here's the How To Robo Maid Manual.

We have had hundreds of guest who stayed in room 506 so you had better do a towel check.

Do you mind making some sourdough bread? I'm sure Barb L. will be along to make some strawberry preserves.

I'm having chocolate turtles and a vanilla shake for lunch. If you don't want any, there is some pecan pie next to the black forest cake.

I held a seminar in spiritual meditation and it seems that your cats are in a sleep trance. Better get them to the next class and I will try to wake them up.

Your kids are so beautiful ! Are you sure that you want to swap them for a broom & mop? Dust rag & swifter? Rare steak & undercooked potato?

Thanks for making a case of Strawberry Jam, Barb. Humm, a party at the B&B means fewer people and lotser animals.
The owners of the B&B haven't been around for ages. I wonder if we are getting new management? Probably some Rhino outfit from Oklahoma. I hear they are buying up B&B's and using them for weight-gain spas for the underweight neptriniaology disorder figuration. We have two rep's staying here. They are making an infomercial about kankel wader foundation and cream sparkle-spakel. Those are nose strengthener products for those with too much pulp. You want to go to their seminar later? We might get some free samples.

Hey, I'll give 'em to you for a week so I can get some housework done. Coffee, anyone?? I just bought some peppermint reddi-whip.

Ms. Barb ~ strawberry jam's the only jam I can make well. My Nannie, however ... wow, the lady can make some serious jams and jellies! She has a peach and pear orchard in her backyard. Anyone ever had homemade green pepper jelly?! Or prickly pear cactus jam? I'm sharing!!
