As an aside Wilma, I bought a couple of knockout roses from Walmart a few years back. They were marked down to two dollars at the end of the summer. I planted them and they haven't looked back, they don't take much water and bloom nearly all the time. A good rose for our mean summers, but not nearly as beautiful as your pretty tea rose. I love tea roses but don't have the patience to administer the pampering that they really require. I want to play outside today, but it's just too cold. I do hope that I can get the grass in my flower beds sprayed today.
Going to a couple of concerts this weekend, making up for my lost youth. Look out David Allen Coe, I'm looking forward to the ultimate c&w song come saturday night. You just cannot beat the price; a bus trip to the casino, $40.00 worth of free play, free buffet, and a concert all for $47.00. Quite a bargain for a full days' entertainment. They will be picking us up at 2:00 Pm and we won't get back until the wee hours. Hope I survive!
We plan to attend the rattlesnake hunt in Okeene the first part of May. I won't be huntin' or handlin', but I will probably have to try eating some. We also plan to attend the big hamburger fry in Okarchee that weekend. That sounds like fun; they fry a humungous hamburger and everybody gets a piece of it. They also have a real electric trolley line that will be operating that day. And I plan to watch the wind playing in the wheat. That is something that I do miss around here; the pasture land here is absolutely beautiful this time of year, but the wind playing in a wheat field just gives me such peace.
