Good morning and TGIF!

What are your plans this weekend? Leslie says she’s attending a going away party tonight then having a spa day with her daughter on Sunday. I wasn’t invited. 

Since Lake Dunlap has been drained by this week’s dam failure, I’m planning to go kayak fishing with my son at Medina Lake on Sunday. I bet we wind up swimming at some point with temperatures hovering near 90 degrees. Oh yeah!

Have a great day and a better weekend! 

– Mark & Leslie
