    Good Morning Marilyn, Larry, Wendy and all…I have been around for awhile but didn’t dare start this or we would have had two..or maybe 3? So I took a cup of coffee out to the porch and enjoyed the morning there. I discovered that the sun was so hot yesterday it burned all of the leaves on the two pots of flowers on the porch:(( I need to get on the phone and find someone to come and cut that Leyland Cypress down before it falls on the pool and wrecks that. I need to start mowing lawns again, just about 1/2 inch of rain and it is growing again:( I need to do a little bragging about my DGD…she aced her college level calculus test so she won’t have to take any math in college. Gives her extra time for other classes and saves a few $$$ too. I had enough trouble getting through Algebra !!! Gotta get going if I get half of my to do list done today!

    Margba, all I have is a cell phone and that is the number he got me on…and would you believe he had the NERVE to call me last night again? I think I have a clue to this one, when my phone gives me the calling number it has one more digit than the ones in the US have so when I hear that extra digit I will just kill it and not answer!

    I spent the morning running errands…to the pool place in the next county, then to the tractor place for air filter for the tractor, the grocery store, post office. It was very hot so I did some inside chores until it was cooler, dd and I got the tractor running, we were going to start uncovering the pool when we discovered that the Leyland Cypress tree next to the pool is half uprooted and about to fall over the pool. So tomorrow I need to get someone here to cut it down before that happens. Apparently the cold winds this winter did a number on the roots. I just got another call from that creep that called me last night, I hung up on him and so far he has not called back. I did some laundry, got the bedding washed from last weeks guest and ready for the next one. Going to get into my jammies and see if I can find something on tv, if not I have a good book started. Have a wonderful evening everyone.

    I envy all of you who had time to work in your gardens today. I had to leave at 10 am to go help set up for the retirement party, DD and two others are retiring this year. There was a lot of old retired and some people who worked in the main office in Va Beach there so it was a big affair.By the time we got everything cleaned up and I got home I was pooped! The sun is so hot today that it is burning the leaves on the plants on my back porch! It is supposed to be hot again tomorrow so I will work outside until it gets too hot then I have to get to the pool place to get what we need to open the pool. This is the latest we have ever opened it but it was too cold for so long. A lot to do and so little time to get it all done.

    I have yellow, purple and white Siberian Iris, they are so thick they need to be divided this year, IF I can remember to do that when I get some “spare time”.

    After years of picking pine cones up so I could mow NOW I see a good use for them! They are pretty and a few cans of spray paint would make them look soooooo good!

    Margba it is my understanding that those “ad Junk”choices are what help pay for our free site. I may be wrong but they don’t really bother me.

    That is ok with me since I very seldom visited some of the other sites and I understand having to incorporate them into fewer sites.

    I don’t have any advice for the jaw problem but I know all about the cramps..I keep quarts of Tonic Water on hand at all times for the cramps. They used to give quinine for them but they no longer can prescribe that but the Tonic Water contains quinine so that is why it works. Charlene can attest to that since I had an attack at Bette’s when we were there and she sat up with me until the cramps went away. DD has the same problem and it mostly happens in the summer. I hope you can get some relief for that jaw so you can eat and enjoy your time outside. Let us know when you finally get the answer to that. One of my DD’s had tmj when she was younger so they put braces on her teeth and that stopped it.

    Good Morning Larry…I love meeting on the VIP again! I actually had my first cup of coffee on the porch when I let the dogs out. It looks like another beautiful day for us with a little more heat but I promised not to complain about heat after last winter. I would love to spend the day outside but I have so much laundry to do today to get ready for the next round of company. My back is giving me fits these days and I am not sure I will ever get everything done outside :(( I need to get to town sometime today to get a new air filter for the mower. I thought I had an extra one but must have used it last year. They are predicting heavy storms north of us today and storms here tomorrow. I sure hope they are wrong. Tomorrow is DD’s retirement party and I promised the girl who is in charge of that to help her. I still have one more batch of cookies to make for that. Guess I had better take some Aleve and try to get the kinks out of my back. I hope everyone has a great day, many prayers for the people who need them including those suffering such damage from storms and floods.

    Like you Charlie I promised not to complain about the heat after our miserable winter. My Australian guest left today going to Nashville, then New York City! She is either the bravest girl or the biggest idiot in history, no way would I want my pretty little 20 year old wander all over the US alone! So today I started making cookies for my DD’s retirement party at work on Thursday. The first two weeks of June are looking pretty busy here too, a Graduation Party, Graduation and 80th Birthday Party for my ex. I guess my gardens are going to have to be on their own for awhile, I can’t seem to be in two places at once. I am not seeing any sign all of the Texas Star Hibiscus I had planted in several places..guess the cold winter did them in. I still have some seeds for them but too late to start them this year. I got lucky this week, the place where my DD works are replacing all of the mini fridges that they have in each plant for samples. Just the right size for me to put into the greenhouse to keep all of my “seed hoard” in so that frees up one of the crisper drawers in the fridge. Today I made oatmeal raisin and french toast cookies for the party at work this week. Tomorrow I will make chocolate chip peanut butter cookies and that will be all I have to do for that one. Going to get outside and do something now that the front yard is shady. Too hot in the sun for this ole gal to work today.
