    Good morning everyone.  It is 52º and the sun is shining.  It is supposed to be another beautiful day just like we have been having the past week.  I am glad it is nice because I am going to a family gathering.  It is a reunion of my cousins on my Mom’s side of the family.  I’ve got 86 if they all show up, but I know that isn’t going to happen.  There are a few that I hope do come.  I am looking forward to seeing one cousin that I know is coming from Illinois.  We haven’t seen eachother in 31 years.  We have been emailing eachother.  She seems to complain about her health alot, so I may avoid that topic of conversation….lol.

    I am going to make a pan of scotcheroos and a cabbage crunch salad.  The picnic is 1 1/2 hr away so it is impossible to take hot dishes.

    I did get alot done around here yesterday….and glad I did because I doubt that I will do anything except water when I get home later this afternoon.

    Have a great Sunday everyone.  Charlene

    Jan….I understand volunteer tomatoes, but I have never heard of volunteer potatoes????  Was it the mild winter or were they growing in your compost pile?  Charlene

    Well, welcome back, Jan!  If your ears were ringing it is because we were talking about you and wondering why you hadn’t posted lately.  Aren’t those puters a headache at times?  Hope all is well with you.  Charlene

    Yippppeeeee!  Kathy got RAIN!  I know how dry you have been.  We have gotten several rains lately that you haven’t gotten.  Maybe this is a new trend and it will continue to rain on occasion…..wouldn’t that be nice?  I am also enjoying the cooler temps.  Charlene

    I know nothing about clay soil….thank God, I live in Iowa where we have very good loamy soil.

    No….it is not too early to plant them now….just make sure you keep them moist through germination and keep watering until frost.  You want to get their roots established.  If they don’t come up now do not give up hope…..these are plants that self sow in the real world of gardening….they may appear next Spring if not now.   Charlene

    Maxine….sorry to hear about your DBIL.  In the US the widow is entitled to the Veteran’s pension…..or at least it used to be that way.  Things and laws are changing all of the time.  Charlene

    I got a “Crystal Fountain clematis” one year which really looked alot like yours when it bloomed.  Since it didn’t survive it’s 1st winter, I no longer have it and have not tried again.  Charlene

    [quote user="luvmyb_b"]  We sought help from a specialist on how to file a workmen’s comp claim, and got that process started.  I’m hoping we can get some sort of relief with that. [/quote]

     

    Karen….I can only imagine what you must be going through right now.  If the workman’s comp thing doesn’t work out, there is always short term disablility.  I have a couple of friends that have done that when they were unable to work.  One collected following a major surgery and the other was following a bad car accident.  It isn’t alot of money, but better than nothing.

    Del….I’ve been thinking of you, your friend and her family all morning.  Wouldn’t it be a miracle if she would rally back?  Weirder things have happened.  Charlene
