It will go into our monthly debts and our 3 kids that ask for everything possible.

We're going to do some stocking up on canned goods and meat for the freezer because the price of food is rising faster than any amount of interest we would get in a savings account.

Take her to the beaches, leaver her in the salon, or on the blanket, and do some surf fishing.

Or see if you can find any of those famous East Coast razor clams on the beach, or catch some crayfish. Buy a coupld of kites and attach blades to the corners of your kite and see if you can cut her kite string.

Ok. I'll be good now. Take her and your younguns to the beach, play in the surf (safely), and show them and yourself the time of your lives. Take your portable grill and get some hot dogs, or brats, some corn on the cob, etc. Have fun in the simplicity of just spending time with the most important people in your life. And Daddy, remember, don't throw the little one too high into the air before the big spaloosh, and make sure the water is at the right depth. Keep an eye out for rip tides, and should you find yourself in one, swim parallel to the beach to get out of it.

Have fun, be safe, and enjoy the time. All to soon, it will be over and you'll have to go back to work.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North
