Ahh, to be 10 and playing in the woods again.
Summer is icumen in...and we're sweating BUCKETS. It's going to be over 100 degrees at TGHQ for the next couple of days, so if you're a local, carry that ice water around and stay in the shade!
It's also totally BBQ weather, so local geeks...if you're grilling delicious meats, let us know. If you don't mind a small invasion of hungry monkeys, that is.
