GREAT WEATHER HERE. TEMPS IN THE UPPER 80'S WITH LOW HUMIDITY. I'M OFF ON FRIDAYS SO I WAS ABLE TO GET OUT AND WEED THE GARDEN. GOT THE TOMATOES WEEDED. THE KIDS PICKED GREEN BEANS. PROBABLY NOT ENOUGH TO CAN, BUT WILL BE GOOD FOR A MEAL OR TWO. WE ALSO PICKED ABOUT 3 YELLOW SQUASH. DH CLEARED OFF THE ROOF FROM THE LIMBS AND STICKS THAT HAVE FALLEN IN THE LAST FEW STORMS.

I TRADED A CAN OF GREEN BEANS FOR ICE CREAM AT A LOCAL ICE CREAM SHOP. DH AND DD HAD GONE WHEN I WAS CANNING ON TUESDAY (DON'T WORRY THEY BROUGHT ME SOME BACK). THEY MENTIONED TO THE OWNER THAT I WAS CANNING BEANS AND HE SEEMED INTERESTED. WE WENT THE NEXT NIGHT AND TOOK HIM A QUART OF GREEN BEANS. HE GAVE ME MY ICE CREAM IN EXCHANGE FOR THE BEANS. NICE DEAL!

OTHER BIG NEWS AROUND HERE--A 150 LBS, 2 YEAR OLD BLACK BEAR WAS REMOVED FROM MY NEIGHBORHOOD BY CONSERVATION AGENTS. HE WAS ABOUT 2 BLOCKS FROM MY HOUSE.

HOPE YOU ALL ARE HAVING GOOD DAYS!

NANCY, GLAD THE SHOES FIT. I THINK YOUR STORMS MOVED DOWN ON ME ON MY TRAVELS. I DROVE THRU SOME VERY HEAVY RAIN YESTERDAY MULTIPLE TIMES.
STARR, BUY A REAL GPS. WORKS BETTER IN MY OPINION. WHY CAN'T YOUR FRIEND TRAVEL UP TO SEE YOU THIS TIME? YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DECIDE IF THE ANXIETY IS WORTH IT.

LECATES--IT ACTUALLY COOLED DOWN A LOT YESTERDAY WHEN A STRONG STORM CAME THROUGH. TODAY IS LOW HUMIDITY AND TEMPS IN THE MID-80'S (WHICH IS COOLER FOR US THIS TIME OF YEAR). IT'S ACTUALLY A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND I'VE HAD THE CHANCE TO WALK OUTSIDE SEVERAL TIMES GOING TO MEETINGS. ENJOY YOUR TRIP!

NANCY--GLAD YOUR SHOES FIT AND ARE WHAT YOU WANTED! WE'VE LOST A FEW STORES HERE--KMART, SHOPKO, TOYSRUS, PAYLESS. THAT SAID, MOST OF OUR STORES ARE DOING WELL--WE'VE GOT WALMART, TARGET, MACY'S, JCPENNY, AND SEARS.

STARR--MY SUGGESTION IS TO MAP OUT YOUR ROUT AHEAD OF TIME. I KNOW I'M OLD FASHIONED, BUT I PRINT OUT DIRECTIONS FROM GOOGLE MAPS OR MAPQUEST BEFORE I GO. IF YOU DO IT NEAR THE TIME YOU LEAVE, YOU SHOULD HAVE UP TO DATE INFO ON ROAD CLOSURES AND CONSTRUCTION. ON OUR VACATION, WE DECIDED TO GO TO A BASEBALL GAME IN PITTSBURGH (ABOUT 2.5 HOURS AWAY FROM OUR RESORT). THE DIRECTIONS ON THE GPS WERE FINE, EXCEPT THERE WAS A STRETCH OF ABOUT 5 MILES ON A GRAVEL ROAD. IT KIND OF FREAKED ME OUT, BUT IN RETROSPECT, IT WASN'T AS HILLY OR WINDY AS MOST OF THE PAVED ROADS CLOSER TO THE RESORT AND IT DID GET US TO THE INTERSTATE. GOOD LUCK!

GORGEOUS DAY. I'M HOPING TO CAN MORE GREEN BEANS TODAY! HAVE A GREAT DAY!

LECATES, THANK YOU FOR THE INFO ON THE SWEET POTATOES. I BELIEVE THAT I PLANTED THEM IN JUNE, SO THAT MEANS HARVESTING TIME WILL BE IN SEPTEMBER. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT. I LOVE SWEET POTATOES. emoticon

NANCY, WE ALSO HAVE HAD SEVERAL BIG STORES CLOSE IN OKLAHOMA OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS. SEARS, K-MART, J C PENNY, MONTGOMERY WARD...THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERALL OTHER, BUT I CAN'T THINK WHAT THEY ARE OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD. I AM GLAD THAT YOU GOT YOUR SHOES AND THEY ARE EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANTED. I HAVE TRIED ORDERING SHOES ON-LINE, BUT ALWAYS HAVE TO SEND THEM BACK BECAUSE OF NOT FITTING. THAT HAS HAPPENED 5 TIMES NOW. emoticon

OK, I HAVE A QUESTION. I AM WANTING TO GO SEE MY FRIEND IN ARKANSAS TOWARDS THE END OF THE YEAR. I WENT AND VISITED HER 3 YEARS AGO. IT IS A 4.5 TO 5 HOUR DRIVE. WHEN I WENT TO VISIT HER 3 YEARS AGO, I GOT MAJORILY LOST AND ENDED UP BEING ON THE ROAD FOR MORE THEN 7 HOURS. AT SEVERAL POINTS, I WAS IN TEARS. I AM NOT GOOD AT DRIVNG IN NEW PLACES. I THINK, WHAT SCREWED ME UP ON THAT TRIP, IS THAT THERE WAS MAJOR ROAD WORK ON THE HIGHWAY THAT I NEEDED TO TAKE IN SPRINGFIELD~AND TRAFFIC WAS BEING DETOURED ONTO ANOTHER ROAD & IN ANOTHER DIRECTION. HAVING NEVER BEEN IN SPRINGFIELD, I WAS TOTALLY LOST ONCE I HAD TO TAKE THAT DETOUR. AND THE REST OF THE TRIP WAS A SHAMBLES FROM THERE ON. I SOMEHOW MAGANED TO GO INTO MISSOURI. DID SOME BACKTRACKING, BUT WAS STILL LOST. LOOKING BACK ON THE TRIP, I AM STILL NOT SURE HOW I MANAGED TO GET TO HER HOUSE. I AM NOT GOOD AT READING MAPS, AND NOT EVEN GOOD AT VERBAL DIRECTIONS. I DID USE MY CELL PHONE'S GPS, BUT AGAIN, ONCE I HAD TO TAKE THAT STUPID DETOUR IT WAS ALL MESSED UP EVEN WITH MY CELL PHONE GPS. IT KEPT TELLING ME THAT I NEEDED TO REROUTE & TAKE THE HIGHWAY THAT WAS CLOSED OFF! I ALSO GOT LOST COMING BACK TO OKLAHOMA, BUT NOT AS BADILY OR FOR NEARLY AS LONG. I WENT A DIFFERENT ROUTE GOING HOME THEN WHAT I TOOK GOING TO HER HOUSE. I AM ALWAYS FEAR THAT I AM GOING TO MISS MY ROAD OR TURN OFF, BUT I CAN'T ALWAYS GO SLOW BECAUSE OF TRAFFIC BEHIND ME. AND PEOPLE GO SO FAST, ESPECIALLY IN LARGE CITIES, THAT I WORRY ABOUT GETTING HIT BECAUSE I AM GOING TO SLOW FOR PEOPLE'S LIKING. THE ANXIETY THAT I HAVE DURING A DRIVE THAT I AM NOT FIMILAR WITH IS INCREDIBLE. AND TO BE 2, 3 & 4 HOURS AWAY FROM HOME OR ANYTHING THAT I AM FAMILIAR WITH SCARES ME TO DEATH. I WANT TO GO VISIT MY FRIEND AGAIN, BUT FEARING THAT DRIVE KEEPS ME FROM TELLING HER "YES, I WILL COME". CAN ANYONE ASSOCIATE WITH THIS? AND CAN ANYONE TELL ME SOMETHING THAT MAY HELP ME? ANY POINTERS OR TIPS?

STARR--3 MONTHS ON THE SWEET POTATOES---THAT IS WHAT MY STICKER IN THE PLANT SAID---IT IS MY FIRST TIME TO GROW THEM MYSELF SO MY DATE IS AROUND THE BEGINNING OF SEPTEMBER TO THE MIDDLE OF IT---I WILL PROBABLY GO WITH THE MIDDLE OF IT AND JUST DO ONE PLANT AT A TIME AS THE GROUND SHOULD KEEP THEM SAFE.
NANCY, NO SEARS AROUND HERE EITHER---ALTHOUGH I RARELY WENT TO THIS ONE ONCE THEY MOVED TO THE NEW MALL---THEY DIDN'T CARRY WHAT THEY USED TO AFTER THEY MOVED. I DO MISS KMART BUT I DID STOP BY ONE WHEN IN REHOBETH AND THE PRICES THERE ARE MUCH HIGHER THAN THEY USED TO BE.
MARCHEM---HEAT AND HUMIDITY COME BACK HERE AND THIS WEEKEND WILL BE HORRIBLE---I AM GLAD I AM HEADED NORTH===LOL
NOT SURE HOW MUCH I WILL BE ON OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, INCLUDING THE WALK TOPIC---WILL GET ON WHEN I CAN---HOPING TO AT LEAST SAY HI.
DH WILL BE TAKING CARE OF ALL PLANTS FOR ME. HE USUALLY DOES A GOOD JOB.

EVELYNN--SO SORRY ABOUT PICKLES! AT LEAST HIS MASTER WILL BE HOME RELATIVELY SOON. HOPE YOU HAD FUN AT THE POOL

LECATES--SAFE TRAVELS AND ENJOY YOUR TIME AWAY.

NANCY--HOPE IT COOLS DOWN SOON FOR YOU.

STARR--I HAVE NEVER GROWN SWEET POTATOES. WISH I COULD HELP YOU, BUT I'M UNFAMILIAR WITH THEM.

I CANNED 7 QUARTS OF GREEN BEANS LAST NIGHT. STILL HAVE ENOUGH FOR ANOTHER 7 QUARTS. DH WANTS ME TO CAN TONIGHT, BUT NOT SURE IF I WANT TO. SUPER HOT YESTERDAY, WHICH CANNING DOESN'T HELP. IT'S SUPPOSED TO COOL DOWN TONIGHT. IT WAS RIDICULOUSLY HOT AND HUMID THIS MORNING. STRONG STORM CAME IN MIDDAY. IT HAD COOLED DOWN A LOT WHEN I WENT TO MY AFTERNOON MEETING. NOT SURE IF ITS WARMED UP AGAIN YET.

STAY HYDRATED. HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GOOD DAY!

OH EVELYN,, I AM SO SORRY THAT PICKLES STOOD AT THE WINDOW & CRIED FOR YOUR HUSBAND. READING THAT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY! emoticon I AM SO GLAD FOR YOU, HIM & PICKLES THAT HE WILL BE HOME THE 20TH. I HOPE THAT YOU GIVE PICKLES LOTS OF EFFECTION WHILE YOUR HUSBAND IS GONE.


I JUST HEARD ON THE NEWS THAT SCAMERS ARE ABLE TO GET YOUR INFORMATION JUST BY LISTENING TO YOUR PHONE CALL TO YOUR DOCTOR, FRIEND, BANK (THE NEWS THAT THEY CAN SOMEHOW DO THAT) AND THAT IS HOW A LOT OF PEOPLE GET SCAMMED. I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW WERE SUPPOSE TO KEEP OURSELVES SAFE FROM BEING SCAMMED, AS JUST ABOUT ANYONE WHO IS TECHNOLOGY SAVY CAN GET ANYONE'S PRIVATE INFORMATION. AND MOST PLACES, NOW DAY'S, YOU HAVE TO GIVE THEM A BUNCH OF INFORMATION IN ORDER FOR THEM HELP YOU OVER THE PHONE. I WISH THINGS WERE LIKE THEY WERE BACK IN THE 60'S & 70'S.

TODAY HAS BEEN *HOT*. HIGH OF 98 DEGREES, WITH THE HUMIDITY MAKING IT FEEL LIKE 110 DEGREES. emoticon emoticon WE GOT AN UNEXPECTED, ACCORDING THE METEROLOGIEST, THUNDERSTORM THIS AFTERNOON. emoticon emoticon WHICH MAKE THE HUMIDITY EVEN WORSE.

WELL, I WAS ON THE PHONE WITH MY CELL PHONE'S CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR 2 HOURS THIS MORNING. FOR THE 2ND MONTH IN A ROW, THEY HAVE CHARGED ME WAY ABOVE WHAT MY BILL IS SUPPOSE TO BE. LAST MONTH IT WAS $60 MORE,THIS MONTH IT IS $35 MORE. THE CALL CENTER IS SOMEWHERE OVERSEAS, WHERE IT IS VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND THE PEOPLE. EXCEPT FOR GETTING MAD & FRUSTERATED, I MADE NO HEAD-WAYAT ALL. I TRIED CALLING MY LOCAL CELL PHONE STORE, BUT THEIR PHONES MUST BE OUT OF ORDER, AS THE LINE JUST KEPT RINGING & RINGING EACH TIME THAT I CALLED. I AM GOING TO GO OVER THERE TOMORROW. BUT I WON'T BE SURPRISED IF I DON'T GET HELP, AS, IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE LAST TIME THAT I WENT INTO THE STORE FOR THIS KIND OF HELP....I WAS TOLD THAT I NEEDED TO CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE! emoticon

I PLANTED MY SWEET POTATOES BACK IN MAY, BUT HAVE NO IDEA OF WHEN TO HARVEST THEM. DO ANY OF YOU KNOW? I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT HARVEST TIME IS 2 MONTHS AFTER I SEE FLOWERS, BUT I HAVE HEARD THAT SWEET POTATOES DON'T USUALLY FLOWER. emoticon

I PUT SOME PINTO BEANS & HAM IN MY INSTA POT A BIT AGO. IT WILL BE YUMMY & READY TO EAT IN LESS THEN AN HOUR. I JUST RECETNLY GOT MY INSTA POT, AND AM WONDERING WHY IT TOOK ME SO LONG TO DO SO.

emoticon TO YOU ALL,
STARR

EVELYN, MAN'S BEST FRIEND IS HIS DOG AND VISA VERSA. PICKLES WILL BE FINE AND GLAD THAT YOUR HUBBY IS IMPROVING

LECATES, YEP WHEN I CAN GET OUT I DO, THIS MORNING I MANAGED TO ORDER ANOTHER PAIR OF "LIFE WALKER" SHOES . THERE ARE NO STORES AROUND HERE THAT SELL THEM SO I AM TAKING A CHANCE ON LINE,, WENT THROUGH THE COMPANY ITSELF AND IF THEY DON'T FIT I CAN RETURN THEM. THE LAST ONES I BOUGHT AT SEARS AND OF COURSE SEARS DOES NOT EXSIST HERE IN CANADA ANYMORE.. BUT HAS THE PRICE EVER GONE UP,, emoticon LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE.

NANCY, I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND. I KNOW I WOULD BE THAT WAY IF I GET TO THE POINT WHERE I COULD NOT DRIVE---HOPEFULLY I WILL HAVE SOMEONE WHO WILL NOT MIND TAKING ME PLACES WHEN THAT HAPPENS. GLAD YOU NOTICED THAT YOUR PLANTS NEEDED SOME EXTRA CARE. REMINDS ME THAT I NEED TO ADD THE INDOOR PLANTS TO DH'S LIST WHILE I AM GONE---LOL
MARCHEM, IT'S ALWAYS SAD WHEN NOT EXPECTED---WELL, MORE SO WHEN NOT EXPECTED. I NEED TO PULL A FEW WEEDS UP FRONT BEFORE I LEAVE. DH WILL WATER BUT DOUBT HE WILL PULL WEEDS UP FRONT.
EVELYN, WOW, THEY BRING HIM FOR A HOME VISIT? WHAT A GOOD IDEA AND GIVES THEM AN IDEA OF WHAT HE WILL BE FACING AT HOME. I KNOW THE DOG WILL BE THRILLED TO GET HIS MASTER HOME.
I DID GET MY CAR WASHED YESTERDAY---AND DID DH'S TRUCK, TOO. AND LO AND BEHOLD, IT DIDN'T RAIN AFTERWARDS----LOL
I LEAVE TOMORROW ON MY TRIP SO MY ATTENDANCE HERE ON THE CHAT MIGHT BE SPOTTY AT TIMES AND MAYBE JUST TO SAY HI.

LECATES--I'LL TAKE SOME GRAPE TOMATOES. I'M A DAY OR TWO AWAY FROM HARVESTING MY FIRST TOMATO.

NANCY--GLAD AT LEAST ONE KNEE IS DOING BETTER. I'M IN A SIMILAR BOAT TO LECATES--HOT!! WE'VE HAD SO MUCH RAIN, THOUGH, SO IT'S PRETTY HUMID TOO AND A LITTLE CHALLENGING TO GET OUT AND WEED, LIKE WE NEED TO.

NOT MUCH TIME IN THE GARDEN YESTERDAY. BACK AT WORK. GOING PRETTY WELL, THOUGH I DO MISS VACATION. MY FRIEND'S DAD PASSED AWAY THIS WEEKEND. HE WAS FIRE CHIEF OF A NEIGHBORING TOWN AND THE FAMILY IS WELL KNOWN AND LOVED. I FIGURED IT WOULD BE A PACKED VISITATION AND FUNERAL. COULDN'T MAKE THE FUNERAL TODAY, BUT THE WHOLE FAMILY WENT TO THE VISITATION. WE GOT THERE AT 5:10 (STARTED AT 5) AND GOT TO THE FAMILY AT 5:45. IT WAS SUPPOSED TO GO UNTIL 7, BUT I'M SURE IT LASTED UNTIL AT LEAST 8. WHEN WE LEFT, THE LINE WAS ABOUT TWICE AS LONG AS WHEN WE FIRST GOT INTO IT. GOOD TO SEE MY FRIEND AND HER FAMILY. ALSO, GOOD TO SEE SOME OTHER FRIENDS. JUST SUPER SAD OCCASION. SUDDEN ILLNESS. HE WAS ONLY 63. I JUST SAW HIM ABOUT A MONTH AGO AND HE WAS SO VIBRANT AND HEALTHY.

JOANNE, YES, TOO MUCH WATER CAN DO THAT. I DON'T THINK THERE IS A WAY TO KEEP WORMS OUT OF CAULIFLOWER---GOOGLE IT TO SEE IT THERE IS A WAY. I WISH I COULD SEND YOU SOME OF THE HEAT EXPECTED FOR THIS COMING WEEKEND HERE---EVEN THE WEATHER MAN SAYS IT IS GOING TO BE STINKING HOT THIS WEEKEND---HOPING I AM NOT TAKING IT WITH ME TO JOY'S----LOL
NANCY, FIGURED YOU WERE OUT GALLIVANTING---LOL
MARCHEM---WELCOME BACK. YOU WILL BE BUSY CANNING THOSE BEANS. THERE IS ONE SQUASH THAT IS NOT READY TO HARVEST HERE BEFORE I LEAVE---HOPING IT WILL KEEP IN THE FRIDGE WHEN DH PICKS IT WHILE i AM GONE. I THINK IT MIGHT BE THE LAST ONE UNLESS SOME FORM WHILE I AM GONE.
ANYONE WANT SOME GRAPE TOMATOES? LOL WAY TOO MANY COMING OFF.
WE GOT LOTS OF RAIN YESTERDAY---GROUND SOAKED IT UP WELL AND ALL THE PLANTS JUST LOOKED SO MUCH HAPPIER AFTERWARDS.

MADE IT BACK SAFELY FROM VACATION. VERY RELAXING. HAD A GREAT TIME AND MANAGED TO GET CAUGHT UP ON SOME THINGS YESTERDAY.

NEIGHBORS PICKED ABOUT 7 LBS. OF GREEN BEANS FOR US WHILE WE WERE GONE. THE KIDS AND I PICKED ANOTHER 6 LBS. LAST NIGHT. I'LL PROBABLY CAN TUESDAY. WOULD CAN TONIGHT, BUT MY FRIEND'S DAD PASSED AWAY THIS WEEKEND AND HIS VISITATION IS TONIGHT. I CANNOT MAKE THE FUNERAL, BUT I REALLY WANT TO BE THERE FOR HER AND HER FAMILY.

HOT AND RAINY HERE. WE ARE 15 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE YEAR. IT'S USUALLY PRETTY DRY OVER THE SUMMER HERE, SO ITS KIND OF SURPRISING.

I HAVE ONE TOMATO THAT'S CLOSE TO RED AND TONS OF GREEN ONES. WE PICKED OUR FIRST YELLOW SQUASH OF THE SUMMER LAST NIGHT. ZUCCHINI IS STARTING AND WATERMELON AND CANTALOUPE ARE FLOWERING.

STAY COOL AND HYDRATED!

JULY 8TH ALREADY, AND I STILL FEEL AS IF I AM WAITING FOR SUMMER TO BEGIN. SO FAR OUR SEASON HAS BEEN TOO COLD, THEN TOO DRY AND TOO COLD, NOW IT IS TOO WET AND STILL TOO COOL. MY PLANTS ARE NOT HAPPY TO HAVE THEIR FEET STUCK IN CHILLY WET MUD. WELL, WHO WOULD BE?!?! CAN TOO MUCH WATER MAKE LEAVES TURN YELLOW AND CURL? BECAUSE IT SURE SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING TO SOME OF MY PLANTS...

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY TIPS ON GROWING CAULIFLOWER? THIS IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT, AND I DONT WANT TO GET HEADS FULL OF THOSE LITTLE WORMS!

I HAVE ALWAYS FOUND THAT THAT I DONT MIND WHAT I CALL "FIGHTIN', FORNICATION, AND FOUL LANGUAGE" IF IT IS RELEVANT TO THE STORY, WHETHER IT BE IN A MOVIE OR A BOOK. BUT I DO AGREE THAT SOME MOVIES AND TV SHOWS GO TOO FAR THESE DAYS... I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK OF ROCKET MAN.

EVELYN, LIFE DOES CALL UPON US TO HAVE COURAGE, STRENGTH, AND STAMINA! HANG IN THERE, GIRL! I HAVE GREAT ADMIRATION FOR YOU AND FOR THE WAY YOU SEEM TO BE HANDLING YOUR HUSBAND'S ILLNESS AND RECOVERY.

KATHRYN, IS THIS BECAUSE IT IS SUMMER BREAK AND SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE WITH THEM? HOW WILL SHE HANDLE SCHOOL TIME? ARE YOU OFFICIALLY RETIRED FROM THE SCHOOL SYSTEM NOW OR ARE YOU MAYBE ON CALL IF THEY NEED SOMEONE? THANKFULLY DH WILL BE HOME TO TAKE CARE OF MY PLANTS WHILE I AM GONE----HE DOES A GOOD JOB AT THAT PLUS HE TAKES CARE OF THE CATS SO NO WORRIES FOR ME WHILE TRAVELING.
NANCY, DID YOU GO OUT WITH FAMILY YESTERDAY?
STARR, BUSY DAY---GLAD YOU ENJOYED MOST OF IT. READ UP ON MOVIES BEFORE YOU GO NEXT TIME.
EVELYN, GLAD YOU HAVE HAD EXPERIENCE WITH THAT.
WOKE UP TO RAINY DAY---WE NEED IT BADLY SO NO COMPLAINTS FROM US HERE. DH WILL BE VERY HAPPY TO NOT WATER PLANTS FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS NOW. SENT HOME A BUNCH OF THE GRAPE TOMATOES AND A CUCUMBER WITH MY SON YESTERDAY. I FIXED SQUASH FRITTERS WITH MY SQUASH FOR DINNER LAST NIGHT AND PICKED MORE GRAPE TOMATOES AND ONE BIGGER TOMATO.

GOOD SUNDAY AFTERNOON EVERYONE.

NANCY, THANK YOU FOR THE TIP OF MILK & WATER. I WILL GIVE THAT A TRY.

YESTERDAY I DAY SPENT MOST OF WITH MY ELDEST DD. SHE CAME & PICKED ME AND YOUNGEST DD UP AT 9:30 AM, SHE DOES NOT LIKE TO GO IN MY CAR. WE WENT TO SEE THE MOVIE ROCKETMAN, WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE A DOCUMENTARY OF ELTON JOHN. I AM NOT PATICURALY A FAN OF ELTON JOHN, BUT I DO LIKE A FEW OF HIS SONGS. THIS MOVIE WAS HORRIBLE. emoticon emoticon IT HAD STUFF IN IT THAT I DON'T EVEN WANT TO SEE, MUCH LESS ALLOW MY YOUNGEST DD SEE. I KEPT HAVING TO HOLD MY HAND OVER HER EYES. WE LEFT THE MOVIE AT LESS THEN AN HOUR IN, AND IT WAS A TWO HOUR MOVIE. THAT WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF $30.00!! emoticon

FROM THE MOVIE THEATRE WE WENT TO A CAFE FOR LUNCH. THE LUNCH WAS WONDERFUL & TASTY, WHICH "KIND OF" MADE UP FOR THE HORRIBLE MOVIE. I AM GLAD THAT WE DIDN'T GET ANY GOODIES FROM THE CONSESSION STAND, OTHERWISE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN EVEN MORE OF A BIG WASTE.

AFTER LUNCH WE WENT TO 4 THRIFT STORES, THE GOODWILL STORE AND SEVERAL YARD SALES. AFTER THAT MY DD DROPPED ME OFF AT MY HOUSE SO THAT I COULD LET MY FUR-BABIES OUT TO GO PEE, AND SHE WENT TO HER HOUSE TO DO THE SAME. AN HOUR LATER SHE WAS BACK AND WE WERE ON THE ROAD AGAIN. WE WENT TO A STORE CALLED BIG LOTS, WHICH HAS ALL THEIR THINGS MARKED DOWN LOWER THEN MOST STORES DO. I BOUGHT A COUPLE OF FOOD ITEMS, BUT ELDEST DD HAD AN ENTIRE BASKET FULL OF STUFF! FROM THE STORE WE WENT TO MY CHURCH TO CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULY. THEY SERVED HOTDOGS, WATERMELLON, CHIPS & TEA. THAT WATERMELLON WAS VERY SWEET & VERY YUMMY. THE LAST SEVERAL WATERMELLONS THAT I HAVE PURCHASED HAS BEEN EITHER HARDLY SWEET, OR NOT SWEET AT ALL. emoticon I'D JUST PREFER TO NOT HAVE ANY WATERMELLON AT ALL, THEN TO HAVE IT LIKE THAT. WHEN IT GOT DARK ENOUGH, SEVERAL OF THE YOUNGER MEN SHOT OFF ALMOST AN HOUR OF FIREWORKS. IT WAS JUST AFTER 11:00 WHEN I GOT HOME. MY USUAL BEDTIME IS AROUND 9:00. SO I NEVER STAY UP TILL 11:00. I WAS SO WOUND UP, I GUESS, THAT IT WAS AT LEAST 2:00 AM BEFORE I GOT TO SLEEP. THEN MY ALARM CLOCK WENT OFF AT 6 TO GET UP AND GET READY FOR CHURCH. emoticon emoticon

I HOPE THAT YOU ALL ARE HAVING A WODERFUL WEEKEND.

emoticon

JOANNE, i WOULD THINK FROZEN DILL WOULD BE JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER THAN DRIED DILL. I HAVE A FRIEND WHO CANS ON ANOTHER TEAM AND WILL ASK HER. HAVE YOU TRIED GROWING THE BASIL IN A POT INSTEAD OF THE GROUND? OR IN DIFFERENT PLACES OUTSIDE.
JOHNSON, TOO LATE FOR THE FRIED CHICKEN FOR ME BUT I DID HAVE SOME THIS WEEK.
EVELYN, GLAD HE IS IMPROVING. HOPE THE SWALLOWING COMES BACK---THAT TOOK MY MOM QUITE A WHILE ON THAT. IT'S NOT TOO DIFFICULT TO FLUSH THE TUBE AS THEY WILL HAVE HIM KEEP THAT FOR A WHILE JUST IN CASE. BET YOU ARE NERVOUS BUT HAPPY ABOUT HIM COMING HOME.
NANCY, THAT IS HOW IT IS HERE---TAKES YOUR BREATHE AWAY WHEN YOU STEP OUTSIDE.
CHURCH PICNIC TODAY---BUT WE WILL EAT INSIDE----LOL---TOO DARN HOT TO BE OUTSIDE HERE. I MADE A LEMONADE PIE FOR THE MEAL.

STARR, AS FAR AS I KNOW IF THE LEAVES ARE TURNING YELLOW IT MEANS ONE OF TWO THINGS, EITHE NOT ENOUGH WATER OR SOMETHING MISSING IN THE SOIL. TRY WATERING AROUND THE STEM OF A PLANT WITH A MIXTURE 1/2 WATER AND 1/2 MILK, SEE IF THAT HELPS

emoticon & HOWDY EVERYONE.

OUR HIGH TODAY IS JUST A BIT SHY OF 100 DEGREES. HUMIDITY, AS USUAL, IS VERY MISSERABLE. WE HAVE A TINY CHANCE OF RAIN, AND THE SKY IS DARK & BLEAK LOOKING RIGHT NOW. I JUST GOT HOME FROM SEEING A MOVIE WITH BOTH DD'S AND SAW SEVERAL LIGHTNING BOLTS. WE DID HAVE A HUGE THUNDERSTORM LAST NIGHT, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO RAIN. IT WAS A QUICK, BUT V ERY HARD RAIN. RAINED ENOUGH IN JUST UNDER 20 MINUTES THAT ALL OF MY GARDEN WAS STILL WET THIS MORNING. emoticon SO NO WATERING FOR ME TODAY. emoticon

CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY SOME OF THE LEAVES ON MY TOMATO & CUCUMBER PLANTS ARE TURNING YELLOW? AND, WHAT ARE VOLUNTEER PLANTS?

THE MOVIE THAT MY DAUGHTER'S AND I SAW THIS MORNING WAS ROCKETMAN. SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT, AS THE ENTIRE MOVIE WAS RIDDLED WITH SEXUAL STUFF & CUSSING. I DON'T LIKE TO SEE/HEAR EITHER. A TOTAL WASTE OF $30.00. WE LEFT LESS THEN AN HOUR INTO THE MOVIE.

HOPE EVERYONE WILL HAVE A WODERFUL REST OF THE WEEKEND.

LECATES. NEVER HAD THAT PROBLEM WITH TOMATOES WHEN I WAS AT THE HOUSE, MINE WOULD SPLIT BEFORE THEY RIPENED

JOANNE, I WOULD GLADLY SEND SOME OF THIS HEAT TO YOU IF I COULD.. I NEVER HAD ANY LUCK WITH HERBS SO NO HELP HERE,

REJOHNSON ,, YOU CAN JUMP IN ANY TIME AND TODAY YOU COULD HAVE BROUGHT SOME FRIED CHICKEN WITH YOU emoticon (CLOSEST THING TO A CHICKEN THAT I COULD FIND) emoticon

IT WAS A SCORCHER YESTERDAY, WE HAD MAYBE 5 MINUTES OF RAIN ,, HUMIDITY WAS AWFUL. FELT AS IF YOU WERE WALKING INTO A STEAM BATH AS YOU OPENED THE DOOR, NOT MUCH BETTER TODAY

Good morning SparkPeople team mates this 75 degree Saturday morning 6 July 2019. I just had to jump in here and let you know that I won fifty (50) team bonus points this Saturday morning. Lucky, lucky! I do not usually break into your lively discussions but I thought this was very interesting.

Today is National Fried Chicken Day in America. Celebratee!

IT IS STILL COOL AND RAINY OUT HERE IN WESTERN CANADA. WE HAVENT HAD ANY REALLY WARM WEATHER AT ALL YET : A FEW HOURS HERE AND THERE, BUT THAT IS ALL. IF YOU FOLKS DOWN EAST HAVE ANY HEAT TO SPARE, SEND IT ON OVER! THE FLOWERS ARE ALL DOING WELL WITH THE MOISTURE, BUT THE VEGGIES NEED SOME HEAT! WE HAD BETTER HAVE A LONG MILD FALL, OR THERE WONT BE MUCH IN THE FREEZER THIS WINTER! THE LOCAL INDIGENOUS BERRIES ARE ALL ABOUT TWO WEEKS BEHIND, SO THAT GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT THE GARDENS ARE DOING...
I HAVE BEEN HARVESTING AND DRYING OR FREEZING HERBS. THE DILL IS GROWING GREAT GUNS, AND I HAVE DRIED QUITE A BIT OF THAT AND FROZEN A TRAY OF DILL BUTTER CUBES. RIGHT NOW I HAVE PARSLEY AND OREGANO GOING IN THE DEHYDRATOR.
I ALSO FROZE A BUNCH OF DILL TO USE IN MY PICKLES THIS YEAR. THE DILL IS ALWAYS READY WAY AHEAD OF THE CUCS AND CARROTS... HAS ANY OF YOU EVER USED FROZEN DILL IN YOUR PICKLES BEFORE? WITH WHAT RESULTS?
ANOTHER QUSTION FOR ANYONE WHO HAS SOME INSIGHT INTO HERBS: HOW DOES ONE GROW BASIL? I TRY IT EVERY YEAR, AND IT JUST NEVER DOES WELL FOR ME, IT IS SPINDLY, AND SORT OF YELLOWISH, AND NOT AT ALL LIKE IT WAS WHEN I BROUGHT IT HOME FROM THE GREENHOUSE AS LITTLE BEDDING OUT PLANTS...

HAVING ISSUES WITH OUR BIG TOMATOES--BOTTOMS ARE ROTTING---AND NOT REALLY BLACK SO NOT SURE IF IT IS CALCIUM LACK OR WHAT. PLUS THEY ARE NOT GETTING VERY BIG. NO PROBLEMS WITH THE SMALL ONES SO IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE. I NEED TO DO SOME RESEARCH ONLINE ABOUT THEM.
I DID PICK QUITE A FEW GRAPE TOMATOES, A SQUASH, AND A CUCUMBER YESTERDAY. SPOTTED A BLOSSOM ON ONE OF THE PUMPKIN PLANTS AND GREEN PEPPERS ARE GROWING--NOTHING ON THE ORANGE OR PURPLE PEPPER PLANTS YET.
IT WAS NOT NICE OUTSIDE YESTERDAY---WE DID RUN SOME ERRANDS AND BRINGING EVERYTHING INSIDE WORE ME OUT SO AFTER EVERYTHING WAS PUT AWAY, I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING ELSE STRENUOUS. BUT I DID MAKE OUR RESERVATIONS FOR DISNEY IN NOVEMBER!

NANCY, WE HAD A 65 YEAR OLD WOMAN DIE FROM THE HEAT THE OTHER DAY. IT IS NOT NICE AT ALL. I AM HOPING IT COOLS DOWN UP THERE SINCE I AM HEADING THAT WAY TO JOY'S NEXT WEEK. WE DID HAVE SOME RAIN YESTERDAY AFTERNOON----NOT ENOUGH TO REALLY HELP A LOT, BUT AT LEAST IT WAS SOME---AND IT DID COOL DOWN THE TEMPS BUT THE HUMIDITY KEPT IT FEELING OVER 90. DH WAS ABLE TO COOK BURGERS ON THE GRILL FOR DINNER.
iMREITE, HOPE YOUR TOMATOES RIPEN SOON. I HAVE TOO MANY COMING OFF MY GRAPE TOMATO PLANTS.
HOPE NO ONE ON THE TEAM WAS AFFECTED BY THAT EARTHQUAKE IN CALIFORNIA.
STAY INSIDE, STAY HYDRATED, STAY SAFE IN THIS HEAT.

I DID A BUNCH OF WEEDING EARLY IN THE WEEK. WEVE GOTTEN RAIN SINCE AND SO FAR THE 2 MAIN GARDENS DONT SEEM TO HAVE A LOT OF WEEDS OR AT LEAST ONLY TINY ONES. THE FLOWER BEDS ARE ANOTHER STORY. BUT I AM STARTING TO SEE SMALL TOMATOES AND PEEPERS. I LOOK FORWARD TO THEM BEING RIPE..

MARCHEM, AT LEAST IT WAS NICE ENOUGH TO HAVE THE WINDOWS OPEN. LOL TO THE KIDS AND THEIR ELECTRONICS---GOOD REASON TO KEEP THEM CHARGED PLUS A GOOD WAY TO GET THEM OFF OF THEM AND JOIN IN WITH THE FAMILY.
NANCY, IT WAS OVER 100 HERE WITH HEAT INDEX---LOTS MORE GRAPE TOMATOES TO PICK--DH IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIND SOMEONE TO SHARE THEM WITH WHILE I AM GONE. I GOT A SHOT IN ONE KNEE SEVERAL MONTHS AGO WHEN I FELL AND HE HAD TO DRAIN IT. BUT I CAN GET SHOTS IN MY KNEES 3 TIMES A YEAR AND IN MY HIPS ONCE A MONTH IF NEEDED---BUT LUCKILY I GENERALLY DON'T NEED THAT MANY. GLAD YOU GOT EVERYTHING DONE.
DH HAS TO SEE A UROLOGIST NOW---THINK MEDS WILL TAKE CARE OF HIS ISSUE. HOPING THE APPOINTMENT WILL BE BEFORE I LEAVE OR IN AUGUST WHEN I AM BACK SO I CAN GO. HE ALSO NEEDS TO SEE A SURGEON TO GET A CYST REMOVED FROM HIS BACK---SAME PLACE HE HAD TO HAVE ONE REMOVED BEFORE BUT IT HAS BEEN ABOUT 9 YEARS.
NO PLANS HERE FOR THE FOURTH---TOO DARN HOT TO GO WATCH FIREWORKS---I THINK THE HEAT INDEX IS SUPPOSED TO BE AS BAD AS YESTERDAY. IT WAS STILL 91 AT 7pm LAST NIGHT. STAY COOL!

LECATES, YES I WAS A LITTLE LATER FINISHING UP MY LAUNDRY BUT THAT WAS FINE, EVERYTHING ELSE GOT DONE. DID YOU NOT HAVE SHOTS IN YOUR KNEES A WHILE AGO?. HERE THEY WILL ONLY GIVE THEN ONCE A YEAR.. WHAT DO YOU CALL A THRIFT SHOP? I PICKED MY FIRST RIPE YELLOW MINI TOMATO YESTERDAY AND BOT WAS IT GOOD

EVELYN--GLAD YOU'RE GETTING SOME RAIN!

LECATES--HOPE THE MEDICAL APPTS. GO WELL. GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO SHARE SOME OF THE GRAPE TOMATOES.

OUR FRIENDS GOT HERE YESTERDAY. ENJOYED CATCHING UP. WE WERE PLAYING SOME GAMES DURING A STORM AND THE POWER WENT OUT. LINES DOWN IN THE AREA. POWER WAS OUT FROM 8:40 P.M. UNTIL ABOUT 2:30 A.M. I KNOW THAT BECAUSE LIGHTS CAME ON AND DD AND I WOKE UP. WE TURNED OFF THE LIGHTS AND CLOSED THE WINDOWS. IT WAS KIND OF FUN "ROUGHING IT." THE KIDS WERE ANNOYED WITHOUT THEIR ELECTRONICS, BUT WE PLAYED SOME CARD GAMES BY FLASHLIGHT AND THEN WENT TO BED A LITTLE EARLY.

AS FOR 4TH OF JULY, HAVE FOUND A BUNCH OF SMALL TOWNS AROUND THAT HAVE THEIR OWN DISPLAYS. WE'LL SEE WHAT EVERYONE WANTS TO DO. MAY END UP RELAXING AT THE RESORT AND WATCHING THE NATIONAL ONES ON TV. DEPENDS WHAT EVERYONE ELSE WANTS TO DO. I CAN GO, BUT I HATE THE CROWDS.

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

NANCY, DID YOU GET EVERYTHING DONE THAT YOU WANTED DONE YESTERDAY? NICE EXCHANGE FOR BOTH OF YOU. I TOOK ALL THE GRAPE TOMATOES I HAD TO MG MEETING LAST NIGHT AND THERE WERE A FEW LEFT AND SENT THEM HOME WITH SOMEONE WHOSE GRAPE TOMATOES HAVE NOT TURNED YET. HE WAS THRILLED TO GET THEM. DH WILL HAVE TO FIND SOMEONE TO GIVE THEM TO WHEN I AM GONE.
MARCHEM, NOT TOO SURE I WOULD LIKE THOSE BACK ROADS. SORRY YOUR TEAM GOT SKUNKED BUT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ENJOYED IT. NICE THAT YOU HAVE FRIENDS WHO ARE GOING TO VISIT YOU THERE. DID YOU GO TO THRIFT STORES? JOY AND I OFTEN GO TO THOSE PLACES WHEN I AM UP THERE. THEY HAVE SOME INTERESTING PLACES THERE WHILE I DON'T FEEL THAT WE HAVE MANY NEAT ONES HERE. THAT WAS QUITE THE ADVENTURE WITH ALL THOSE ANIMALS. GLAD NO DEER ATTACKED YOUR CAR.
EVELYN, STOP HOGGING THE RAIN AND SEND IT MY WAY---LOL
GOING TO GET SHOTS IN MY KNEES TODAY AFTER DH GETS HIS PROSTATE TESTED---INTERESTING MORNING---NOT!
IT WAS A WONDER THAT THE DUST BUNNIES DID NOT CARRY ME AWAY YESTERDAY---LOL---GOOD PROGRESS IN MY BEDROOM---STILL HAVE TO DO DH'S SIDE---OH, MY, IT IS BAD OVER THERE, TOO.

WENT TO A MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GAME ABOUT 2.5 HOURS AWAY. THE TICKETS WERE VERY REASONABLE AND WE WENT ON A WHIM AFTER WE SAW WHAT GREAT SEATS WE COULD GET TO SEE OUR TEAM PLAY NEAR US ON VACATION FOR SUCH A REASONABLE PRICE. WE HAD A GREAT TIME. ONLY PROBLEMS WERE OUR TEAM LOST BADLY (18-5), IT WAS SUPER LATE TO DRIVE BACK TO THE RESORT, AND THE DRIVE WAS A BIT OF AN ADVENTURE. WE'RE STAYING IN THE FOOTHILLS OF THE APPALACHIANS, SO EVERY ROAD IN AND OUT OF OUR RESORT IS HILLY AND WINDY. TO GET TO PITTSBURGH, WE HAD TO TAKE BACKROADS FOR ABOUT 50 MILES UNTIL WE GOT TO INTERSTATES. ONE ROAD WAS A GRAVEL ROAD. LUCKILY, WE WERE ONLY ON IT FOR ABOUT 4 MILES. IT DEFINITELY WAS AN ADVENTURE. ON THE DRIVE BACK ON THE WINDY, COUNTRY ROADS, WE SAW 5 DEER, 10 RACCOONS, A FOX, AND A BOBCAT. KIND OF COOL.

TODAY, WE HAVE SOME FRIENDS JOINING US AT THE RESORT. WE GOT UP LATE AFTER LAST NIGHT AND ARE WAITING FOR THEM TO ARRIVE TO HAVE LUNCH. DD AND I MAY GO INTO TOWN AND DO SOME THRIFT SHOPPING. STILL NOT SURE WHERE WE'LL WATCH FIREWORKS, BUT WE DID GET TO SEE A BUNCH LAST NIGHT (THE OTHER TEAM HIT A LOT OF HOMERUNS AND THEY SET OFF FIREWORKS WHEN THAT HAPPENS).

STAY COOL. HOPE EVERYONE HAS A GOOD DAY!

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE.

WELL, I WENT TO CHURCH YESTERDAY MORNING. ME & BOTH DD'S WERE SUPPOSED TO GO TO DECORATE MY DH'S GRAVE YESTERDAY AFTER CHURCH. BUT SHE CALLED ME AFTER I GOT HOME TO SAY THAT IT WOULD HAVE TO BE TODAY, AS SHE WAS TOO MAD AT HER DAUGHTER TO GO ANYWHERE. I TOLD HER THAT IT COULD NOT BE TODAY FOR ME, AS I HAVE TWO APPOINTMENTS. IT IRRIATED ME THAT SHE CALLED IF OFF FOR YESTERDAY, AS SHE HAD JUST CONFIRMED WITH ME ON SATURDAY THAT WE WERE GOING ON SUNDAY RIGHT AFTER CHURCH. I LEFT CHURCH EARLY (THEY WERE HAVING A SPECIAL SERVICE WHERE THE YOUTH WAS TAKLNG ABOUT AND GIVING TESTOMONIES OF THE WEEK THAT THEY ALL SPENT AT CHURCH CAMP LAST WEEK). IT WAS 12:10 BY THE TIME THAT I REALIZED WHAT TIME IT WAS, AND ALTHOUGH I WOULD LOVED TO HAVE STAYED FOR THE REST OF THE SERVICE I LEFT, I HAD AGREED TO MEET WITH MY ELDEST DD TO MAKE THE HOUR DRIVE AND SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN AT MY HOUSE WAITING FOR ME WHEN I GOT THERE. HER CHURCH LETS OUT AT 11:30, WHERE MINE USUALLY DOES NOT LET OUT TILL NOON. RIGHT BEFORE I LEFT MY CHURCH I TOOK SOME DRAMAMINE, AS I GET CAR SICK EASLILY IF SOMEONE ELSE IS DRIVING. SHE REFUSES TO LET ME DRIVE WHEN SHE IS WITH ME, CLAIMS THAT MY CAR IS SMALLER THEN HERS. MY CAR MAY BE A BIT SMALLER, BUT IT HAS LOADS MORE ROOM TO MOVE AROUND ON THE INSIDE. WHEN I GET IN HER CAR, I FEEL LIKE I AM BEING SMASHED FROM ALL SIDES. I DON'T FEEL THAT WAY AT ALL IN MY CAR. SO, I LEFT CHRUCH EARLY FOR NOTHING AND I TOOK THE DRAMAMINE FOR NOTHING. THAT REALLY IRRITATES ME!

SATURDAY SHE & HER HUSBAND TOOK THEIR DAUGHTER, MY YOUNGEST DD, HIS MOTHER & 2 OF THEIR NEPHEWS TO THE CIRCUS. THEY SAID THAT IT COST THEM ALMOST $300.00 TO GET EVERYONE. THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO FIND OUT THE PRICE BEFORE THEY GOT THERE. NOW THAT SHE SPENT ALL THAT MONEY AT THE CIRCUS, SHE HAS NO MONEY TO GET GAS FOR HER CAR TO GET BACK & FORTH TO WORK THIS WEEK. I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR HER. I TOLD HER THAT SHE DID'T HAVE TO TAKE THE KIDS TO THE CIRCUS. SHE SAID THAT IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE KIDS, SHE WOULD'NT HAVE STAYED. I TOLD HER THAT IF IT HAD BEEN ME, HAVING FOUND OUT THAT IT WAS SO EXPENSIVE AND KNOWING THAT I COULD NOT AFFORD IT, I WOULD HAVE TOLD THE KIDS THAT IT WAS TOO EXPENSIVE, TURNED AROUND & LEFT. THE ONLY THING SHE TAUGHT THE KIDS IS THAT THEY WILL GET WHAT THEY WANT, NO MATTER WHAT !! SHE TOLD ME THAT THE KIDS "EARNED" TO GO TO THE CIRCUS. (BY DOING CHORES & SUCH). I TOLD HER THAT THE CIRCUS IS NOT THE ONLY PLACE SHE COULD HAVE TAKEN THEM. AND THAT IT IS OFTEN IN LIFE THAT A PERSON "EARNS" SOMETHING BUT (FOR WHATEVER REASON) DOES NOT GET IT. THAT'S LIFE...IT HAPPENS. CHILDREN ARE NOT TOO YOUNG TO LEARN THAT LESSON. THEY COULD HAVE LEFT THE CIRCUS AND GONE TO THE ZOO.....WOULD HAVE COST HER LESS THEN $80.00 TO GET EVERYONE IN THERE, AND THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO STAY AS LONG AS THEY WANTED TO.

OK, ENOUGH RANTING.

THE LEAVES ON MY CUCUMBERS & ONE TOMATO PLANT ARE TURNING YELLOW. DO ANY OF YOU KNOW WHY THAT WOULD HAPPENING?

STUPID ME! YESTERDAY I PICKED, WHAT I THOUGH WAS A CUCUMBER ON WHAT I THOUGHT WAS A CUCUMBER PLANT. THIS PATICULAR PLANT, AS WELL AS ONE OTHER, LOST THEIR INDENTIFICATION MARKERS. IT WAS ROUNDER THEN MY OTHER CUCUMBERS, BUT I HAVE BEEN GETTING REALLY ODD SHAPPED CUCUMBERS. SO, I THOUGHT THAT WAS WHAT IT WAS. BUT IT WAS NOT TILL I GOT IT OFF THE PLANT AND OUT INTO THE SUNLIGHT THAT I SAW IT HAD GREEN LINES RUNNING DOWN IT. AND THEN I IMMDEIATELY KNEW THAT I HAD PICKED A VERY, NOT RIPE, CANTALOUPE. emoticon WELL, IF I GET ANY MORE CANTALOUPES, I WILL KNOW TO NOT PICK THEM TILL THEY ARE YELLOW!! (BUT I AM REALLY IRRITATED THAT I PICKED THAT AND NOW IT IS RUINED. HAD I LEFT IT ALONE, I COULD HAVE HAD A JUICY & SWEET CANTALOUPE. emoticon

THAT IS NEAT MARCHEM THAT YOU GOT TO SEE DEER MUCNCHING PLANTS. I THINK DEER ARE SO BEAUTIFUL & MAJESTIC. I HOPE YOU'LL HAVE A WONDERFUL VACATION.

WELL, THAT'S IT FOR ME FOR TODAY.

HUGS TO ALL,
STARR

WE SAW A DEER MUNCHING PLANTS BY THE LODGE, A BUTTERFLY THAT KEPT LANDING ON ME, AND A BEAVER THAT WAS EATING LILYPADS WHILE DH AND DD WERE FISHING. COOLED DOWN AND MORE COMFORTABLE. WE'RE HEADING TO A BASEBALL GAME LATER TODAY. IN THE MEAN TIME, I'M ENJOYING A RELATIVELY COOL MORNING LISTENING TO THE BIRDS.

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT FIRST DAY OF JULY!
