    Happy, Happy 4th of July!!! We’re only going to be 93° today. Yeah for our continuing good weather.
    The community picnic and fireworks was last nite and I had such a wonderful time watching it thru Wesley’s eyes. He is in total awe of the entire thing. He has been asking for a ride on the lawn tractor all week, but it was too hard with 2 of them. So, that was our transportation to the picnic. It was fun going, but I felt plenty foolish riding home by myself. I took an LED flashlight to use as a taillight. Brady said it worked well. His mom and dad made it in to pick him up and they followed me.
    Love will make you do some pretty crazy things.
    Stewart, my friend in Germany says they are going to 102° today and no a/c! I forget there are places in the world that don’t generally use air conditioning.
    Mary, Tigsy, Margba and Marcia, quite one for me, too. I have had a very large week and I’m looking forward to some down time.
    Sherry, careful, you are starting to sound like me! It will come to you….sometime. Hehehe
    And that mowing thing…it’s happening here at least twice a week. I feel like all I do is run after gas!
    Have a great holiday and weekend! KB

    Howdy all. It’s a nice day. Good breeze, lots of sunshine and only 84°, so far. I don’t know what has come over me. I usually don’t stop the mower until I’m finished, but I stopped earlier to fill in a wallow in the side yard and now I’m in here cooling off and having a drink. I may never get this project finished. LOL

    Better get busy. Have a pleasant day! KB

    Happy Canada Day!!!
    Brenda, that dog/bit tale scares the hooey out of me. I hope it doesn’t get infected. Maybe the extra bleeding will help that part.
    Today was my last day with Wesley. His papa has the day off tomorrow and they are going for haircuts. But we had a really fun day playing in the sprinklers and trimming trees and ………… I am pooped. Za will go to his mom tomorrow for 4 days…he usually wants to come back to me after a couple, so we will see. I hope he stays. I need the down time.
    Boy did that new med work. No pain in my hands and got right to sleep. BUT, waking up is another matter. LOL Think I need to adjust when I take it, but thankful for the relief.
    Margba, I hate coming home from shopping and having all that mess to put up. It’s a hateful job, but somebody has to do it. LOL
    Fred, good luck on your dad’s appointment.
    Snow, I’m coming by for a bucket of maters, ok?! Hehe I picked my second of the season and I finally have a baby squash. Yeah!!
    Stewart, unless you are getting up to 110/113°, you aren’t in Texas in July and August. Hehehe My friend is in Germany with her family right now and she said they were needing rain really bad, but the pics she’s shared looked “as green as a gourd”, as my mom would say.
    Sherry, I hear you with the mosquitoes. They are just awful here. The funny thing is that we were in a drought so long, we actually got used to not having them. Why, you could sit out on your patio without being eaten alive. Not now! Also, I do not get the notifications either.
    Marcia, I hope you get that checked out. How is the garden doing? It sure looked happy the last time I was over at the blog.
    Dave, are the beans for a fall garden?
    Tigsy, that is a nice cool day.
    Mary, how is everything in your neck of the woods?
    Have a good evening. KB

    Hi, ALL. A gorgeous, sunny day here, but going to be H-O-T later.
    I pulled weeds for a long time this morning while Wesley played outside. He even helped me and was good help. Za decided to spend a couple of days with his mom, so I’m really enjoying having Wesley to myself. We just might ride the lawnmower to the park and have a picnic.
    Dr. visit went well. Add one, take one away. I guess that’s pretty good. She said if things are still going this good after one more 3 month visit, we can go to 6 months. Yeah!!
    Need to mow again. Maybe I can get some done after he goes home.
    Brenda, what a great idea. Little boy rumbas! LMBO
    Gotta run make sammies for the picka-nicka. Have a great day. KB

    Good morning. It looks to be a nice one here. The sun is up with slight chance of rain. It’s 68°, but headed to high 90s. That’s about right for this time of year. I’m dreading heading on into July.
    Za and I had to get up early and be ready for Wesley to arrive. I do home they have mercy on this old lady. I’ll have them both all week. LOL
    Tigsy, the little boy is my neighbor’s grandson. I kept him when he was a baby and he’s just always been attached to me. He comes to visit a couple times a week. He loves his mom, but he knows he can’t count on her. SO, I’m it for 3 more weeks.
    I did get the new flag mounted and up yesterday. I have to try and do some guy wires though. I can tell it will go in the first storm. Should have bought a smaller one.
    Margba, if I don’t get any squash, I’ll just try for a fall crop. The heat will stop all of our gardens from producing very soon.
    Better go. Za and I are going to wait on the porch for Wesley to arrive.
    Have a good one. KB

    Happy, sunny Lord’s Day! We had more rain on Fri. I was a downpour, but moved on off by midnight. I barely made it in the house from mowing before it hit. The mowing is every 2 to 3 days. Seems like all I do is go get the gas can filled! I sure am not complaining because I had forgotten just how wonderful it was to look out the windows upon a nice, green lawn. Awesome!
    Our family 4th of July party was yesterday. My cousin stays up all night smoking about every meat you could name. They also cook huge cobblers in an earthen pit. Beyond yummy!!
    I still have the 7 yr. old here with me. He is so sweet and he helps me all he can. I
    thought he would stay more with his mom, but he doesn’t even want to stay as much as was scheduled. He has done very well, but with nearly 3 more weeks before his nana(they have always had custody of him)returns…….fingers crossed.
    Now that we are getting some sunshine, my little tomato plants are trying their best to grow. I should have tried to replant the squash that died. With only one left, I’m not sure I will ever have anything but blooms. One of the pepper plants has a fruit, but the poor plant is so tall and leggy, it’s pitiful.
    Have a wonderful Lord’s Day and I will be back as time allows. Hugs and prayers to all who are in need. KB

    Howdy! Marcia, it’s so sweet of you to think of me. I had a week long siege, but I am ok. Beautiful blooms. Nothing like that here, as the drought wiped out everything but the poor little jasmine that never grows or blooms. LOL Your graduation excursion sounds fun.
    Tigsy, my neighbor got soaking trying to mow his yard yesterday.
    Margba, seems so odd to hear of people planting now when we are already so H-O-T! It all sounds like a good plan.
    Fred, is your orchard large?
    Dave, good you are getting some nice tomatoes to go with those nasty cukes. Hehehe
    Mary, you are a power house!
    Leroy, hope your seat doesn’t get wet! Yikes!!
    Sherry, we are saturated again and now the tropical storm is supposed to dump on us, too. UGH
    Stewart, enjoy your new “fixture”. ;)
    Hugs to my buddies, Snow and Brenda. Hope all is well with Robbie and Leann. If I missed mentioning you, it’s my age…not a true oversight! :)
    Have a great evening. KB

    Just a quick “Good Morning”. I’m still kicking, but just barely. Have decided this must be a bug. Meds only make me sick for 1 day at a time. Feeling better this morning. Just hoping it continues. It’s been a miserable week AND I’m missing a trip to go spend the weekend with Wesley at the carnival and the rodeo. :(
    Hope you are having a great day and a better weekend! KB

    Another all nighter and still coming down. UGH, there is just no where for it to go.
    My sister is coming tonight to watch PBR “Unfinished Business”. I paid for us to watch, so she is bringing brisket and beans. Ken’s not coming, so I guess it will be a girls night out…sort of. Hehehe
    Another day of my meds making me as sick as a dawg. The meds and the rain have something in common….they BOTH are getting on my very last nerve!! ;)
    Hope you are having an UN-soggy day! KB

    Afternoon gurgles. Another 3 to 5 inches last night….depending on who you talk to…my new rain gauge is still on my kitchen table. Mostly just thunder, big lightening and rain for us, but lots not so lucky. Weatherman says it will be more of the same tonight and last through Sat. morning. Oh, those poor people down stream who are going to get hit again.
    All of my veggies are just yellow and drowning. Nothing I can do about that one. On a good note…the few flowers I have seem to be quite happy.
    Sun is sort of at half mast today. Promises of dry weather Sunday through Wednesday. I, for one, plan to hold them to it! Who knows, I might be able to mow my entire yard at one time!?!
    Margba, thank you again for thinking about me. As long as the roof and walls hold out, I will be high and dry. ;)
    Fred, I hope the news for you dad is good as possible.
    Brenda, no use saying “don’t work too hard” cause you will anyway. LOL Just don’t forget to take your breaks!!
    Mary, glad you thought to take your umbrella.
    Leroy, nothing better than fresh from the garden.
    Marcia, how I loathe all of those little underground rodents! UGH
    Wilderness, I have way too many weeds to pull and it seems like we will never stay dry and hot long enough to spray.
    Stewart, Sherry and Dave, all of you lead footed younguns and I am the ex race car driver who has only had one speeding ticket in my life. LOL
    Leann sounds like you are not flooding. So glad!
    Hope you are all having a great afternoon!

    Alberta, I’d like to invite myself over. That really sounds good. :)

    I’m not in the mood to cook or clean up a mess. Think I’ll just have a ham sammie with lots and lots of juicy tomatoes and a handful of chips.

    I hit the page button on my phone and it was beeping inside my frig!

    I was telling my dad about what I’d done and I asked if he’d ever done anything weird like that. His answer…”Yes, but I didn’t tell anybody!” LOL

    Mine have been here for about 2 weeks or little more. Just singles, so far.

    I remember that one from when I was a kid. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. They don’t make jokes like that anymore!
