Kalyn Men are crazy ..I love the way they just leave us and take off for parts unknown holding down the fort.

Thse shows are crazy.So many people watch them too.It is amazing.

I am going to be moving down into the desert it will not get too cold down thre.Funny the difference a few miles can make in this area.
Have a great day

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

I've always had a problem with those shows. Stands to reason that if they have trouble managing their finances already, if you give them a bigger, nicer place you're throwing them into trouble. Silver, sounds like our weather is about the same in the summer. At least in winter you get cold. We just get cool. And no, I'm not coming out with him. He's coming right after school starts and we still have two teenage kids at home and his daughter has to be monitored 24/7 which is my job, so I'm here. And yes, it's somewhere near Socorro. Dahtil is the nearest town.
And yes, Gail, I'm further south. Central Texas actually.

Did you see on the news last week the people that did the 2005 extreme makeover on their house ,beautiful home 6500 square feet I think. it is going up for auction. they borrowed 450 thousand on it for a business and it did not make it. some one even gave they 100 thousand for up keep and college money for the kids. so sad and sounds like they did not get good advice.

Getting the job is bad, but hopefully you'll find a good one close by. I feel bad for them, but it got you your own place, so good has come of it.
My DH is moving to NM in a couple of years because of the BLM acreage. He loves to go hiking and there isn't any place here that he can. I'm not sure how he plans to eat, because he doesn't plan on working, but that'll be his problem.

They have to sell it they no longer have the money to keep it.He started his own business and she is being forced to retire.They are going to go live with her daughter on the East coast where he can get work.It is very sad for them.So I am sure it is hard.

We go up into the national forest to camp No fees no services.Very rustic and peaceful .Not for the faint of heart .We love primitive camping and usually only go that route.

The fees they charge are outragoues in camp grounds.If we do go we try to use our national park pass.LOL We ar cheap and get that every year it is worth the price for us.It is of some use in State parks too.
Hope you are having a good day. I really need to get my butt moving no motivation today LOL

Hi Arlene. Maybe they will wake up one morning and realize this is not a dream that they got to get moving. Have they bought another place to live? Glad to hear you had a good weekend camping.The news is just now reporting that the state parks here are losing $$$$ what do they expect when the Governor raised rates and higher on holiday weekends $30 a night.4th of July we went to drive through one the campground it is always full and fighting for a place on the 4th it is a 190 site place it only had 55 camper there what does that tell you ??I know gas is high but this is the closest one to town.now he has cut historical site hrs so bad one site is only going to be open 1 day a week. he needs to live down here in the mansion where he belongs and take care of business right and not run off people. any way I hope you have a good Monday and your move is going fine. we'll talk later Brenda

At least they're letting you work on the outside Silver. I can't believe they'd let the Koi die! BTW, how much land comes with it?

Hey Ginger!! I forgot what thread we were in when we talking about surprise lilies - well, they're starting to rise up out of the ground nice and tall...once they sprout - which looks like maybe later today or tomorrow - I will take a pic for you and use as my avatar...They're in one bunch in one place and then I divided some and they come clear across the front of my shade garden. Just be on the lookout! emoticon

Although they're calling for storms tomorrow, I hope it doesn't ruin them.

Who have you encouraged today?

I have some my son got me several years ago. I usually just let it drop over, but I have also cut it back when it was bigger, so I would think either would be okay. Mine come back every year, so enjoy!

Hi ladies,
Have any of you have any mums in your gardens? I have one set of my own and another set we got from a friend and that one is pretty large. Do I go ahead and cut it back some for the fall? I'm wondering cause it's branches are already falling on the ground from the being so long.

Thanks! emoticon
