Remember When???

Remember when.....Curfew was when Dad whistled loud. Your mom called your name,  not your cell phone. We played outside with friends, not online. If you didn't eat what mom cooked, you didn't eat. Sanitizer didn't exist, but you COULD get your mouth washed out with soap! We rode a bike with no helmet, and neighbors gave a damn as much as my parents did. You drank from a garden hose and survived.

Progress in the Garden

Just a quick update on the progress of the garden and green house.

Greenhouse - Great

Outside Garden - not even worth taking a picture.  It has been so cold that nothing is germinating.  I am going to replant the squash this weekend and pray that we have a long fall.  We have potatoes coming up everywhere, though!  Yippee!

Old Age

To me, old age is fifteen years older than I am.

Animal Cruelty

My daughter, who works at a vet clinic, brought home a baby cottontail rabbit. Some man had brought it in and said that his co-workers had been abusing it for days and that they had been boasting about spray painting it with red paint. The little feller is just tiny and so gentle. It fits in the palm of my hand.

How could someone do something like that? What possible benefit could this kind of behavior give? Dear God, help me to know that this world is not a scary place where our brothers and sisters will harm the innocents for fun?

People will accept your ideas 
much more readily 
if you tell them that 
Benjamin Franklin said it first!
