  • We had hard rain with loud thunder both Fri. afternoon & Sat. night. Evidently there was a lot of wind last night, because we saw several trees down on our way to church this morning. It didn't appear that any of the trees had caused damage to houses or vehicles.

    We do thank God for the much needed rain.

  • Steve;

    Usually rain shuts off about the first of June. It has for the past few years. You know what I think?

    I think it's Global Warming. You don't happen to know where Al Gore is?

    I need to load up on Carbon Offsets, what ever they are.

    Don't leave Kit Kat alone with the computer on.

    You may get a UPS delivery in a few days. It will be a Kitty Toy!

  • Thanks for the smile framestraight. The way he has been acting lately, I am not sure that I would be totally surprised.

    I cut the limb off the power line this morning and then ended up cutting some large shrubs. Never got to the driveway, but it will still be there tomorrow.

    I just emptied my last bucket of rainwater yesterday, so it came right on cure. It could come a little earlier next time and I would not complain.

    Harvested some late red leaf lettuce tonight and it was surprisingly mild. I was expecting bitter. Except for the catfish, the corn on the cob and zucchini casserole came from our garden.

    Now I need to start on that tilapia pond. That won't happen unless I find a free above ground swimming pool, but you never know. I am watching freecycle.com every day. I can't buy a new one and use it for fish.

  • Steve;

    Red Leaf is great lettuce. I was too late this year. Maybe next.

  • Steve;

    I will be redoing all of my irises this fall, so if anyone would like to have some, please give me a call at 931-294-5830. I plan on rooting them all up, so there will be plenty for all. I have all kinds of colors.

  • Ooohh what an offer. All mine are shades of purple that we inherited when we moved here. You probably won't need any of those, but others will be welcome to them come fall.

  • framestraight,

    i been thinking bout those carbon credit things

    Al talks about and I think I got some of them..

    My woods lot has about a thousand or so trees in it and if I promise not to cut them down they ought to bring about a hundred dollars apiece.

    Now if Al don't give me that, I just might go ahead and thin them out..

    If you think this sounds nuts, It ain't no more rediculous than thinking humanity has the power to over ride God's plan for this planet...

    We might be just a little too insignificant to make much difference. Remember his predictions about massive numbers of hurricanes?

    Anyway, if you know anyone that buys into this, tell them about my trees,heck , I'll even take a pencil and write their name on it...
