Hello Sunupians! 

How ‘bout all this rain? I love it and we need it. Everything is so green. 

As pretty as they are, the monsoons also bring challenges. I’ve personally helped a few of my neighbors with a host of issues. Everything from shoveling mud to roof repair. Oh, and remember to be courteous to all those “challenged” drivers out there.
Life is too short to sweat the small stuff.  Right?  There are lots of way to show service above self. 
Have a great week.
See you Wednesday.
