A calendar full of meetings awaits Crofton


What kind of weather did Crofton have last week?

Since I spent the week as a beachcomber, I can only venture a guess based on the look of my front and back lawn.

I'd say you must have had a lot of rain, as my lawn, which was was short and very brown when I left, is now green and too long.

At least someone else (son Kevin) has to cut it.
