It's official. June, 2010 is the hottest June on record! I can believe it too! The thermometer on the back porch showed over 105 degrees yesterday! But it was a good weekend overall. We started off Friday night with the Camacho event at the Tobacco Merchant. Zev Kaminetsky, Camacho rep, was on hand for the event.
The old "I'm being held up" routine starring Grier Mangum and Zev.

Quote a bit of exterior trim.
The fire marker, seen to the left of the front entrance door, is something houses in Charleston had to denote which fire department the homeowner was insured with. When there was a fire all the different fire departments showed up and only the one you were insured with would put out the fire. If you had no insurance with any of the fire departments your house would burn to the ground. This is a copy of the old fire markers that we picked up in Charleston many years ago. Every few years I have to repaint it as it becomes weathered. I just repainted it, so here it is in living color!
There you have it. The newly painted Casa de Tiny! Next weekend we'll be at our son's wedding in Michigan where several good celebratory cigars will be smoked! Full report when we get back.
