If one is an idealist, there is a tendency to feel that the glass is half
empty.  You obviously count your blessings and realize that the glass is
really half full.

humidity is about 15%, perpetually sunny skies, afternoon sea breezes, and a
swimming pool and spa to satisfy our water cravings.

Don't know why, but whenever I read an coho-L email which catches my
attention - as this one did - I find myself looking to see which community
(or at least which state) the writer lives in.  Regretfully Gerald didn't
share this with us.

Michael Barrett  -  at Shadowlake Village, Blacksburg, VA - where the
temperature is 81°, the humidity is delightfully low here at 2,200 feet in
the Appalachian foothills and this year the July 4th celebrations included
an egg and spoon race, three legged race (and other fun) as well as the
"traditional" decorated bicycle parade.

We also have 3 homes for sale - see our website at
