Good morning crew,
What an absolutely beautiful, idyllic summer day it is here in the Chicagoland area. It is about 75 degrees, with low humidity. The sun is shining and a gentle, sweet-smelling breeze is blowing the occasional fluffy, white cloud around just a brilliant, azure sky.
I have been reading all about it online while I've been sitting here inside the office all day.
Laugh it up,

"Three hundred dollars? For one visit? Ridiculous."
"Well, then, could you afford two hundred?"
"Who has that kind of money?"
"Look, replies the doctor," growing irritated, "Just give me a hundred and get out of my office, okay?"
"I can give you fifty," says the man. "Take it or leave it."
"I don't understand you," says the doctor. "Why did you come to the most expensive doctor in New York if you have no money?"
"Listen, Doctor," says the patient, "When it comes to my health, nothing is too good!"
