So tomorrow is April 1st. Floyd has an appointment with his eye doc in the morning but that's all we have planned. We are currently experiencing Spring winds. They are out of the west and the southwest, so they are warm and that's what we care about. We have a bunch of junk out front of our house and the city promised to come pick the stuff up but so far they haven't showed. When we need a special pick-up, we call and I called them Friday but so far no show. We just have a bunch of stuff that has accumulated through the years and not worth anything, you know, just taking up space.

About three months ago our deep freeze just quit working, so we have been looking for another and found one at Diamond Furniture here in Deming. Every time I shop, I miss my freezer because when we find good deals, our little freezer in our fridge is just not large enough to shop in bulk. Not only do freezers pay for themselves over time, but it saves many a trip to the store and with gas prices being what they are, that's important. We are putting it in lay-a-way, waiting for our tax rebate. What are you all planning to do with your rebate?? Bush says "spend it", so that's what we are going to do.

Gotta go take care of my laundry since floyd just walked by and said "just so you know, both of your machines have stopped", lol.

New Birdbath

Floyd said this morning, "I'm going somewhere and I will be back soon". I kind of figured he was getting a haircut. He gets haircuts when he has no hair. Anyway, he was back in about 20 minutes and he brought back a nice concrete birdbath! I love it. We have it in our backyard and when our Mulberry tree gets all filled out, it will look great. We have it between our Mulberry Tree and our Plum Tree.

We found pine cones on all but one of our pine trees! Our trees are still babies but are about 12 feet tall. Duke loves to play with and chew on pine cones. :-)

Planting Trees!

Today we went to Walmart and purchased two peach trees. Floyd did all the work and planted them and fertilized them. They are cute. One is an Elberta Peach and one is a California Peach. We planted them back of the Dog Run where our vegetable garden use to be. Maybe next year we will have peaches!

Our next door neighbors have guests. They came in a large Motor Home and Floyd had to help them as the man didn't know how to park the thing, lol.

Nothing else new around here. We love these nice days and we are predicted to have a week of warm weather, yea!

First Day of Spring

Well, it's official:

Sunny Day!

Floyd made a trip to Peppers on his trike. He visits with neighbors along the way, so it is a social thing for him. Today is really a lovely day and he is outside enjoying the sunshine with his radio, the dogs, a beer and cheese snacks. Life doesn't get much better than that. I was outside with him earlier. Now I am watching tv and playing on the computer. Floyd bought me some Nacho Doritos, which I love. He said "I saw them and thought of you", lol.

Things are fine here. Our friends the Watsons are getting over the Flu, Pat's eldest James is about to graduate high school, Kim just got married, things are going Stewart's way and all is right with the world.

Gotta get me a diet coke and check out those Doritos. Talk with you later.

Happy St. Patrick's Day


Wednesday, March 12, 2008


Floyd was cutting the grass today and he accidentally ran over a pvc drain pipe, eek! So tomorrow he will probably run over to Stew's to get another little piece of pipe. The grass had grown up over the pipe and he didn't see it.

Beautiful weather here and just about all over the U.S. We spent much of the day outdoors. The rest of the week should be more of the same. So all the news is about that pervert Governor of New York, Spitzer. Well, make that the ex-Governor. Can you believe it??

Nothing new!

Nothing new happening around here. Congrats to grandson Nicholas who just made the Varsity soccer team, goooo Nicco!

Mississippi Primary tomorrow and Obama is expected to win. After all Mississippi is 37% Black, nuff said.

Our weather has been iffy. Still no rain and the balance of the week should be in the low 70s. We are still adjusting to the time change, lol.

The History Channel says that we are "between Ice Ages", so much for global warming.

Gonna watch some talking heads on TV. Take care all, have a good week.

Spring Chores

Floyd is fertilizing our plants and trees. We haven't purchased our peach trees yet so we can do them when they are planted. I'm glad he is fertilizing everything. I don't know what he is using, because he went to the store and bought something and when he came home, he said "I bought something for the shrubs and trees, and it isn't your kind of stuff", lol.

The wind just came up out of the west. It seems as if we will have a couple of cooler days this week. So I still haven't gone to the library and will do this sometime this week. I was up late last night watching the Primaries, and I'm kinda slow today. I began fixing dinner about a half hour ago. Had to thaw some chicken. I am fixing a large chicken breast for Floyd and legs for me and the doggies. I am also fixing some mac & cheese and mixed veggies. We have pie for desert, so I don't think I need fix more.

Well old McCain made it. He's kind of skanky, cheated on his first wife with Cindy and most likely cheated on Cindy from all reports. I don't think he can be trusted. So this is my opinion and he is so old now, he probably has forgotten more than he ever knew, lol.

Talk with you all later. Have a good week.

March 1st, 1008

Our plum tree has lots and lots of blooms, yea! I need to check out some peach trees at Walmart and Kmart next week. We have noticed that all the trees are greening up nicely here in Deming. I just love Spring. Floyd took a bike ride today and bought himself a few beers. He hasn't had any in about 6 months because one of his meds just made beer taste awful. He has since had the dosage of the med changed, and he said he enjoyed his beer today with no side effects. You know at our age, simple pleasures are about all we have and I am glad he will be able to have a couple of beers daily during the long hot summer that we always have.

Just finished a book by Harlan Cobin, he is just a great author. He writes American detective mysteries which are my favorite. I'll be back at the library come Monday, lol. Well, I need to go over to my other blog, the one about space tourism and do some updates. Hope you enjoy your Sunday!
