Hrmmm...mayhaps, when Greg and I stop by to say hello in a few weeks, instead of standing around chatting, we should get to work straightaway. I'm sure we could knock off at least an item or two!

Be very careful what you volunteer for.

Actually, anything that force me to sit my backside down for a change is a good thing.
