Thanks to you both! I'll stick with it after all. I was about to give up.
 Right now we're having a very hot spell. After having such a cold wet spring, I wasn't sure real summer weather would ever get here.  Some of my garden has failed, but some is doing great. I lost two pepper plants and two toms.That  has never happened before. I still have plenty, but I'm really puzzled as to why they just  up and died. I finally did get my green beans in. I'm glad I waited. The soil had been too cold and wet. Several of my friends have now put their beans in for the third time.The first two times they just rotted in the ground.
We have a tree company coming next Monday to take down my big old Magnolia that suddenly died, take down a big, now over grown, Pussy Willow and do some pruning and shaping on a big Maple. Hope everyone is well and having good times. We're off to Bingo at the fire house tonight. I'm still selling games, but it can sometimes be a pain with pushy, grumpy players, HA!

Is there anyone left who has something to say besides ranting and grumbling about politics ad nauseum?  Shouldn't I bother any more?

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and paused to remembered why we have it. It will be 50 years on July 15 since we lost our dear friend Dave Arnold in Viet Nam. When we visit his grave, I still have tears wondering what his life would have been like had he lived. His family are all gone now so he doesn't get many visitors any more. We made sure he would get a flag.That's a long story. Enjoy the summer and better weather.

I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day. It rained here. It looks like we finally have warmer stay, but too much rain and very little sun. It looks like my thirty year old Magnolia in the back yard gave up and will have to come down. It's a shame because it shades the deck from the hot summer sun and is a big hang out for our birds. I don't know what happened. It was all budded and then the main branches suddenly died. A few skimpy branches are still alive, but not many. Hope you all have your gardens in and are enjoying the weather, but have no bad storms rumbling your way.

We had a horrible shock last Monday evening. A darling young woman and neighbor ( age 33) was shot and killed by the jealous wife of a co worker. We are still just devastated.The shooter then shot herself.

Hi all. I'm sending my new e-mail. It's now  I hope everyone is well. We are still hoping for some warm weather that will say put. We've had just a very few nice days.

Finally, we had a warmish day yesterday.I got out and cleared our back deck of all the sticks, of which there were many. Next, I can start on the front yard....loaded too.  We head up the road with flowers for the cemetery later today. Sunday is Easter of course, but it also would have been Mom's birthday. Enjoy good Friday all, and have a happy Easter too.

So here we are again, in the middle of our fourth Nor'easter this Month.This one is dropping lots of snow ,but the expected winds have not arrived yet. It's beautiful, but once again people are losing wires and trees. Lots of accidents too. We still have power, but many don't. I'm ready to hurt that ground hog!

The storm didn't amount out anything for us. YAY! It's still awfully cold though and we still have some snow on the ground. Hello to all.
