I cannot say I’m proud of myself but I did it. You know how hard I’ve tried to erase my carbon footprint. My daughter said it’s not happening due to my excessive use of hairspray. But! I’ve made bee houses, butterfly houses, bug houses, made two gardens, got rid of all the pesticides, and put out bird, bug, butterfly and bee water trays. I crunch … Continue reading I Cheated!

I don’t agree with the staunchest of … Continue reading American Politics – No Photos – Just a Rant
I was determined that no matter what I was going to Lowe’s for plants and dirt. I went, filled the back of my SUV, and then went to Home Depot for more. I came home with five Lantana plants, one Wandering Jew, two tomato plants, some bee balm, a rosebush, two really weird plants and 50 pounds of flower and garden soil. Then Bruce and … Continue reading I Went to Lowe’s
He is a really bad kid dressed up as a dog. This is the only explanation I have for his antics – and he’s been on overtime for the last two days. Trying to keep him in line and not kill his spirit is difficult on both of us! I will not hit him but we’ve had a few heart to heart talks about his … Continue reading Bruce is at it Again!
