|July 1st  ||
A few things of note:
This promises to be another lovely 4th of July week!!!!!
|July 2nd  ||Hey.......baby Loons!!!!! Two of them!!!!! Click HERE. If you remember, LBLR has not been all that productive from a Loon standpoint. These are only the 2nd and 3rd baby Loons that we've had in the last 5 years (the last one was in 2015), and the years before those were similar.|
|July 3rd  ||Geez(!).......what GREAT "at the lake" weather this has been so far, and it's suppose to continue all week.|

|July 8th  ||The family is gone.......and what a great July 4th week it was. Thank you! Unfortunately three people were missing: my California daughter Teri along with her husband Steff, and my oldest grandson Josh who was in North Carolina. We missed you! Same time next year?|
|July 9th  ||Welcome back to Michelle and Jeff W who arrived yesterday, and to Iowa Terry's group, who will be arriving in stages and wont all be here until Tuesday, two days hence. But the late arrivals will stay through next week as well.|
|July 10th  ||I missed it, but the middle of the year occurred at noon (1:00 PM daylight saving time) on July 2nd, so we are already eight days into the second half of the year, which has just begun. As we all know, every year is shorter than the one before it. Sigh.......|

Do what we can, summer will have its flies.|

And this year is no exception.
|July 12th  ||Happy 50th Birthday Erin!!!!! She's the last of the three Carlson sisters to reach 50. Today is her birthday but this picture is from her surprise party, which was last Saturday (four days ago) and as I understand it, it was a total, complete, surpise! Is that right Erin? Click HERE.|
