2. That's good news, my friend.
Are you still enjoying San Antonio?

Does the climate suit you?

4. I love it here...
I just wish I had someone to share my days off with. Still looking for that.

The climate is great. I'll never move north again...remind me of that next summer when it turns hot as hell here, ok?

5. I know what you mean.
I used to call my cousins in Montana when the winter was bad.

When they called me in August, I learned not to gloat about the weather.

Thank you for the snail mail card.
:hug:

7. But it's a dry heat ...
... er, no it isn't. It can be just hot. Plenty of air-conditioned watering holes along the riverwalk, though.

Congratulations on the job!

21. I like that about my oven too. Set it at four hundred and sticking my head in
I always remember, but it is a dry heat. :-)

As long as there are air conditioners, life can be good in hot places.

Great bennies, same coworkers...

I'll get a dollar raise, benefits kick in after 60 days, paid time off starts to accumulate immediately, and I'll get free cable tv, cable internet, and 1/2 off digital phone. :woohoo:
