Dear Dave,


How is your summer going? 


We are spending a couple of weeks down at our place in Palm Springs. It's not the time of year when most people come to the desert becasue it is HOT HOT HOT, but we have air conditioning and our complex has a great pool so it's been manageable.  


Our condo is fairly small (550SQ FT), but it's perfect for 2 people. Did you know we rent our place out and even pay 10% agent commission to you??

Since it's summer and we're all out enjoying the gorgeous weather, this month's newsletter will be a short one. Have a great summer and don't forget, if you need anything please feel free to contact me.
