Upcoming Releases - June 21-27

It's hard to believe this is already the last week of June.  I'm typing this and wondering, Where did the month go? It's crazy how fast everything seems to fly the older you get.  Remember those hot, humid days of summer when you were young and you thought summer would never end?  I remember even looking forward to going back to school. Today, it always feels like I just finished work yesterday and suddenly it's September and we're heading right back into fall and the dark days of winter (shudder).  Although it's nice to think about curling up in front of a fire with the snow falling down outside, I would much rather be at my campsite curling around that fire knowing it's still the middle of summer and I don't have to shovel a foot of snow in my driveway the next time I look out the front door.

Here's something to look forward to this week; another great week of upcoming releases.
