    Leroy….I went down that road when my Mom had her 1st hip surgery.  To make them happy take up all rugs in the house!  They really frown on rugs….and also clear any kind of clutter or debris from main walkways.  We had to move her magazine rack, garbage can and other things that restricted a walker from sailing through smoothly.  I know you will be happy to have her back home!  I am confident you will pass inspection!  Charlene

    Right now I am 94º and it is 10pm…..God I wish I had AC….

    Wanda, I got too much of the heat in the hay mow when I was 18….and I experience it quite often since.  !st sign for me is that I quit sweating anf start to get cold chills.  I then get a bit dizzy and sick to my stomach.  I have learned that when that happens I need to come into the house a drink a couple of glasses of tepid water…..and then take a shower….starting out at luke warm….and pregressively getting a bit warmer.  I usally then start sweating and know that I am going to be okay.  Charlene

    Lovely container, Wanda!

    Gayle…the white flower is Diamond Frost Euphorbia.  I bought a plant a few years ago.  Every fall I take a few cuttings and place them in water….it roots out fast and grows fast as well.  Charlene

    Molly….last winter we payed $2.47 and that was contracted 2,000 gallons, so we got a good rate.  I thinkit is so cheap because they have a surplus on jand from the warm winter last year and the farmers not using any LP for drying since the corn and beans came out of the field already dried from lack of moisture last fall.

    Steve….your corn looks wonderful…you’d better appreciate that you grow your own.  Because of the drought around here, sweet corn is hard to come by….we paid $7 for a dozen last weekend.

    Sue…your green beans look pretty tasty, too.  Nothing better than garden fresh green beans.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  I overslept this morning….probably because it was too warm to fall asleep until after 2am. It is goinf to hotter than Hades here today as well.  I think tomorrow is when our break is supposed to come. 

    That new free AC unit that I got didn’t work out so well….one night I woke up and it had melted a hole in the window exhaust and was spewing water all over my bed…..thank goodness it was free, or I’d really been mad.  Not sure what is wrong, but I know it is supposed to take humidity out of the air and give off cool heat and not hot.

    Molly….we got a fill of LP this past week.  It was $1.06 per gallon….cheapest it has been in a few years.

    Hope everyone has a great day and stays cool.  Charlene

    Wanda….I am sure they will do great…and they look fabulous!  I have found that Gazannias do better in morning sun than they do full sun.  Charlene

    I grow both flowers and veggies….lots more flowers than veggies now that my family is grown.  I have limited time, so going to 2 or 3 boards is not possible for me.  I visit Midwest when i can….and wish I had time to visit there more often.  I am sure Reimans will do what they have to when the time comes.  In the meantime, I am just happy to have this board….and it is FREE!  Charlene

    [quote user="skippydel13zone6KY"] I can’t believe Charlene your doc has never ordered one for you. [/quote]

     

    That may be because I have not been to a DR since 2004 when i turned 50…not bragging….just stating the facts.  Charlene

    Gayle…it may be time for her to try some cuttings and get some new plants going…..her old hibiscus may be tired….just like me!  I wish someone could take a cutting from me and give me new life.  Charlene

    Looks good to me, Wanda!  I have had all of the stuff to make them for 2 years now but never seem to find time.  I guess making them will be added to my bucket list…..that is almost a large novel right now….lol.  “So much to do….so little time!”    Charlene
