Pondering the value of a Spanish Siesta

Posted By on August 17, 2009

On the other hand, there are days like Sunday and Monday (today) when the temperatures inch into the mid-90s that I’m ready to put out the Gone Fishin’ shingle … or at least take an afternoon off to clean the pool. FYI … the water was cool and relaxing.
