We just landed a ton of fresh veggies from our friends huge garden tonight. But actually here, the gardens have not done so well with all the rain. Usually we would have a ton of tomatoes coming out of our ears, but not so much this summer.

A zippered sunglasses case with the logo of the company I work for. Going to use it to hold my work laptop's aircard which I've almost lost twice already. (That little sucker would cost me $250 to replace if I ever lost it for good! :eek: )
