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.

So far we have survived two big Nor'easters with no loss of power and not too much tree damage. I did lose a big chunk of my old Rhododendron under my living room window, but I think with some pruning it will be OK. Some of my friends lost 30ft.evergreens that were brought down by the heavy wet snow and the high winds. Now we many have another storm on the way for the weekend. We're not sure just where it will go.  Will the winter ever leave? Hope you are all well and ready for real spring weather.

We really enjoyed watching the big Eagles parade in Philly yesterday. Everyone was so happy and upbeat.We needed that. Of course the big stock market drop was scary.I t didn't hit us too bad, but bears watching.Our bond funds helped buffer the stock drop.We've been cold and sunny and have more precip. coming, but expect it to be rain instead of snow. Have a nice day all.

I'm sorry for all your troubles and worries.That's a darned shame.The Eagles won, so we are celebrating the birds bringing home the trophy at last. I'm glad the bug hasn't found you!  I just ordered some seeds to start early. I'm gonna have some spring one way or another. Ha! We've had some snow, but mostly rain. We think of you often too. I miss my Kansas friends.
