A WARM WELCOME AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

                             

It was a Warm "Welcome Home" today at Our Favorite Starbucks as Howard and Cathy made the scene, fresh from their Summer Sojourn in Vail, Colorado.  Actually, in Howard's case, the welcome was more than just warm ... it was Piping Hot.  Friend Fernando was so happy to see Howard that he ran up behind him and surprised him -- mid-sip -- with a Big Bear Hug, setting off a Chain Reaction that caused Howard's coffee cup to erupt like Mount Vesuvius.  Of course, that was nothing compared to the explosion Howard and Cathy left behind them in Colorado where one of the buildings they own caught fire.  Fortunately, no one died in the two-alarm blaze, but someone should have a serious talk with the Mysterious Resident of Unit 212 who presumably skipped school on the day they explained what happens when you combine a lit cigarette with Propane Gas and an Oxygen Tank ...
