Keep cool.

Looks like it’s gonna be a scorcher…

Kudos to you for making it through another work week, so now it’s time to get out there and soak up some fun. But before we head out for another big, hot summer weekend, we’d like to send a great big thank-you to everyone who dropped by this week to add encouragement, support, proof-reading and, yes, criticism, too. And thanks for helping to spread the word about Nippertown.com.
