Good perspective. Positive. Thanks. :)

Merlot, if you get a chance, hit up Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokeys in Gatlinburg, which is nearby. The exhibits, especially the moving sidewalk shark display, are outstanding. You can even get discount coupons online.

I don't think we have been to the aquarium, but we have been to a lot of other stuff there. If he wants to go to the aquarium, I will definitely take him! Thanks for the recommendation.

As for Labor Day, I have no idea what we'll be doing yet. I'm thinking we'll probably have DW's parents over, but beyond that.... still undecided.

No, her name is Rebecca. Sure don't want no mix up and have the Grinch show up here this winter.

I manage a kitchen. Started washing dish when I was 14 and here I am. The only "holiday" I get is Christmas day. But, someone has to do it so it might as well be me. :)
