Where has the summer gone, ample rain and lawn always needs mowing. GLBH likes the new 62" GrassHopper we bought, cuts down on the time she has to spend sitting in the saddle.
Started walking my fence lines with my 3 gal. back pack sprayer on my back, use 24-D to get late emerging weeds like Giant RagWeed and Velvet or Button weed, and yes the GRW is as bad as the name implies. Can reach heights of over 10' and produce more than 1000 seeds per plant. Very good exercise, walked over 3 miles Sat. Have to wait until weeds are dry so always do it in the heat of the day.
#7 and 8 GK's are coming over after church to spend the day, they are 4 and 6 and such a joy to be around
Speaking of GK's I must give you some words of wisdom. NEVER MAKE A DEAL WITH A SLICKEY GK! This #6 GD won a phone for perfect attendance or something at school. She thought she would put in her room but parents wouldn't let her so had no use for it and wondered if I would like it? Since no one else seemed to want it in her family I said sure, I would take it off her hands and maybe even give her a few bucks for it. I figured I would get a bargin from this very sweet 14 year old loving GD. She then informs me she is going to put it up for a live auction. I thought thats OK, no one else showed any interest in needing one. Wrong, her Mom my very loving DIL started bidding against me. Needless to say I wasn't going to let this formally loving DIL out bid me! GD stopped the bidding several times to promote the many 'new ' features this beauty possessed. One of which was the ability to hang on the wall as well set on a flat service, this is important because it comes into play later. After putting my DIL in her place because she ran out of cash, it was a cash only transaction, I was the proud owner of a $30.00 phone. My loving GD #6 then produced a document she made on the computer of what I call a non-bind contract and forced me to sign it. This Slickey sure knows how to cover all the bases. When arriving home I proudly mounted it on the wall by our front kitchen door and found out very soon if you shut the door too hard the phone falls off the wall. After happening several times I call my formally loving Slickey GD#6 and politely ask for my money back. She then reminded me of the supposed contract she made me sign. What's a guy supposed to do, she had me! To add insult to my ego my GLBH found the same phone at a local discount store for $6.00. Now you know why you NEVER WANT TO DEAL WITH YOUR SLICKEY GD! That just might be why I call her Skeeter!
Life has sure been good to me. A very Proud Grandpa Skeeter.

Looks like I had a very good week. Weight stayed the same, 1 Lbs. under goal. Oh well I'll get back to goal when I can eat on both sides of my mouth because of the lost crown, I will get it fixed next week. Had more rain, had a total of 4.3 " in May, lucky to have everything planted. The heat units are finally starting to come.
GLBH handed me what I thought was the can of cinnamon proceeded to dump some on my oatmeal, noticed it was black, what's this, why it's pepper. I tasted it and didn't taste too bad so ate it. Goes back to my theory, you can't make oatmeal taste any worse. It shows we men just eat anything the GLBH puts in front of us. OK you men out there, be careful what your wife puts in front of you.
This wasn't as bad as a friend of mind who was brushing his teeth and hollered at his BH, what in the ???? kind of tooth paste did you buy me this taste like ????, she come arunning and looks and says you duff, you garbed the Preparation H! or the time his neighbor ate what he thought was hard cookies left on the counter, when his wife came home from work said honey those were the hardest cookies you've ever baked, she said what cookies, I never baked any, they were dog biscuits, he started reading the label after that.
Have a good week and will see you in church. Life is great!

Finished drilling neighbors beans, sprayed all corn 1st. time and planted more sweetcorn and put out tomato plants this week and weight stayed the same. All this seems pale compared to the sacrifice our Brave Men and Women have and are doing for our Great Country's safety. Let us remember them daily in our prayers. See you in church? Skeeter
