Signs of the times,

Is this too political?  I think it's funny, no matter one's leaning toward the Dem or Repub parties.  And strictly speaking, it's true.

Red sky at morning......

For some reason, the theme from Gone With The Wind kept running through my head as I drove to work this morning.  This is a pecan grove near where we attend church.  I expected to see a girl with a picture hat secured with an emerald green ribbon and gowned in swirling skirts - dart across the lawn towards the big house on the hill.

Just in time for the New Year

Susan and Michael visited us between Christmas and New Year. 
They came with a project in mind. 

The plantings in front of the porch were getting a bit  -  uh, skanky. 
They were all full of grapevines (well, then - don't SPIT the SEEDS!)
and overgrown with bird planted greenery.

This is the Landscape Design Team.
The Assistant Landscaper regards the completed design.

They took the time to hang a hammock for use. 
They also took the time to make sure it worked as it was supposed to.
We appreciate their Plant and Swing Project and anticipate years of  use and enjoyment. 

Happy New Year, all!

 If you need T., you'll know where to find him if he's not inside

Merry Christmas Day!!!

Both boys got a knife this Christmas
Matthew went to play with a new train
Nathan had to find the first-aid kit.

Both had a wonderful morning opening gifts and clearing away the wrapping.
Merry Christmas to all!

My New Friend

Meet my new Pandigital Novel tablet. -  It came from Big Lots - purchased on Black Friday this year.   It has introduced me to new novelist friends such as Sarah Rosett, Georgette Heyer and Carl Hiassen (I'm reading Basket Case right now, thank you Carl....) and made the Jack Reacher books so accessible that the latest of that series is next!  I have the tablet in a protective case that I found online and ordered, using  Pandigital Novel's Wireless to get to the Internet.  All-in-all, I'm most  pleased to have gotten up before daylight on Black Friday and wish to give a huge thanks to Elder Daughter and her son, N. T. for going into the cold dark night to stand in line to get a ticket from the store employee so she could make this purchase while her younger son and I waited in the warm snug van.   If I'd had the tablet that morning, I would have had something to read while waiting for the Big Lot sale to begin, now wouldn't I!!
