I've got to rant here.

Yes, I've got one of those too!

It doesn't hurt. Just irritating.

Mister could easily yank it out.

My appetite has been off for a while, and my lasagna will go to waste because I can't eat it.

So, maybe I will use this to my advantage.

I will clean the kitchen tomorrow and lay the ingredients out. And hand him the recipe!

StrykersPerson I am so bored!

It's a weekday night and I can't challenge to kick Mister's A$$ at something.

I don't even like Pogo.com anymore.

I like my CT friends, though!



Right?

At least for cottontail rabbits.

There. My words of wisdom for the day.

And the ears are the best part!

StrykersPerson So, Mister came home from work and was getting all pretty.

I walked in the bedroom and asked him what her name was.

He said he was going to get something to eat. I tried to send him with a grocery list. He told me that he was leaving and to get dressed. So I begrudgingly took my sheep jammies off and put on some jeans and mud boots. I only agreed to this to make sure my truck still starts.

I got my canned tomatoes and cheese!

It was a rough day at the office today!

I am plumb wore out!

I like your wife!

I would do the same damn thing.

Your neighbor's deck is way to close for my comfort. "Hey Jack! How's is going? Whatcha cooking over there?"

I did similar job yesterday, re-potting, adding fertilizer and soil to all the potted plants in backyard. I've got a huge Aloe Vera plant almost toppling over I was going to put in ground, but changed my mind after seeing this video:

Extracting Aloe Vera Gel From Plant




Neighbor gave me a giant, surplus pot she had for this behemoth plant.

Today, I went to HD in rain to pickup some 12" concrete paver stepping stones to stack under our Hibiscus pots. For some reason this spring, both Dobes decided they love to graze the leaves off the Hibiscus daily. I want to raise up the plants about 12" to prevent this new bad habit, before adding supplemental soil, etc. to these pots.

Once we decide on stack pattern, squared or spread, I have some exterior thin-set mortar to hold the stack together to prevent toppling by an inadvertent Dobe collision, during a squirrel alert!
I do have a bad back; we used a dolly and the 2-man (or one man, one woman) method Ha, we also have a monster aloe plant, it started out about 6" across, now it's more like 3 feet. If I remember, I'll take a pic of it tomorrow...we didn't even bother with trying to move it up the stairs to the deck because it's way too big.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

melbrod The Mother in Law's Tongues are the two things with the long spiky yellow and green leaves next to the honeysuckle.

It just started snowing here. Not hard, but it is starting to stick.

The only ones I know for sure are the 2 clematis on the right, and other tall one in the left corner is a honeysuckle vine. The rest, I have no idea what they are.

Huh? Really--they don't use antennas on cars any more? My Toyota truck (Tacoma--and it looks like a miniature truck by comparison to the more recent models--they are HUGE) is only 20 years old and it's got an antenna...

I would, if it hadn't been over 25 years ago, when nothing was digital All my photos are sitting in actual photo albums, behind that clingy photo film stuff! And, the way I took photos then is pretty different than I would do it now. I have a lot of photos of...rocks. Technically, a lot of photos of archeological sites, but...lots and lots of tan rocks! Ha! But also some beaches, some friends... Sadly, they aren't as interesting as one would think.

I think you'll just have to take a trip there!

I think it's so very valuable to be exposed to other cultures, isn't it! The perspective you gain that not everyone lives like you do, not everyone values the same things you value... And you can't really get that from a week-long vacation. Even vacationing other places certainly helps, but you have to really try to live other ways. It's pretty eye opening.

I will never forget my first bus ride on the public bus in Greece. There were two people taking tickets, and it was so puzzling...why in the world? There was no need for two people. And then we understood that everyone in Greece who wanted a job was guaranteed a job...thus, two ticket takers. Wow. Different world!

We were a bus ride away from Heraklion, the capitol of Crete, in a small town on the coast. It was a town that had a lot of expats from England, which was kind of fun, and there was a guy from New York who had married a Greek woman, and they'd retired to the town and opened an Italian restaurant! All the expats hung out there in the bar They had the BEST Italian food - we'd walk into town nearly every day (a couple of miles) and have these amazing Italian dinners, LOL. He would cook whatever we wanted. We also would have crazy fantastic Greek food, of course, all the time - little restaurants in town, but we'd take the bus into the city ALL the time and wander around. We'd eat, talk to people, buy stuff...

It was the most amazing time. We have some lifelong friendships, I have a great fondness for Greece and the Greek people, I learned some thing...I would go back to Greece in a heartbeat, any time. It's a fascinating culture, so very different from here. And the "weight" of history is just so amazing. Standing where people lived and worked 2000 years before Christ even walked the earth just took my breath away.

My husband (boyfriend at the time!) and I also took a 10 day trip over to Italy when it was spring break, and toured Rome for the whole time. Amazing trip.

The time to do all that when you are young and don't expect the kinds of accommodations I would need now...ha! It was fantastic. I highly recommend kids that are in college with travel abroad programs take advantage if they can. Especially if they can do semester abroad programs. Really living in other cultures is so good for people.

But how would I be able to go get her ? We really love the breeder and I would be afraid to be around her . Then like Meadowcat said - this is just not a good time to get a pup = training -- Socialization , trips to town to meet everybody , and it goes on and on. And the sad part - we part , we don't know when it will be safe to go out again if ever
Ken - you said, 'if ever'???
