Absolutely! Looking forward to a game of whatever without the sun blazing in my eyes.

Yes! Much happier summer gaming to come, plus Mark won't have to swelter as he does the dishes. Can you believe we bought these shades nearly a year ago and I never gave Mark the 15 minutes he needed to put them up?!

Looks like you are turning into citified people. Blinds on your windows?

Don't worry, it's not for citified reasons. Our kitchen window faces due west, and if we eat supper at the wrong time, the sun is so fierce there that Mark has to keep his eyes closed! We often just eat outside, but we figured we should make it possible to sit there even when the sun's on the wane.
