Thanks a lot for that link! I'm so glad Tara is getting all this attention. She saved the boy from a horrible mauling. That dog was just getting started. I hope there will be video of her "throwing" out the first ball. I'm curious as to what the team will come up with for that. I saw that you will be having visitors from WA. I hope you all have a great time!
If you didn't pass the comixes on, I don't think anyone would see them, and I probably would have stopped making them. But if I can make even a few people smile now and again, it's rewarding enough. Thanks for the reposts =)
C&P from wally01 regarding the Iris: By wally01 on May 13, 2014 at 11:10 PM That certainly looks like the right color. Tell her that I love the tall bearded iris. I do have one yellow Japanese iris that grows well and multiplies. I don't care for the re-blooming kind. They don't do well for me. I don't know how many different colors I have. They don't all bloom every year. Some rest and some bloom. I would guess that I have about 15 colors. I try to add a color or two every year. Sometimes a friend will give me a rhizome or two ; they hardly ever know the names given to them by the nursery. Shreiner's Gardens is in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. She probably knows where that is. I would love to visit there, but they might not get me to leave. LOL. Wild Iris Rows is here in Tennessee. The winter hurt their gardens so some varieties won't be for sale this year. Linda
Thanks for the LOL comment. :D ++ We're heading up to the farm tomorrow afternoon, staying overnight, then going to Mark's nephew's high school graduation Sunday mid-day. There's a party at his sister's place after (her kid graduating) but we won't be going other than to drop off a gift and say congrats. Not sure if it was you I told, but his sis ripped into me the last time we were at her place, 3 years ago when the daughter graduated. Haven't been back since, grit my teeth when she's all friendly during holidays at the in-laws' place, and am not about to step back into the lion's den again, probably ever. **Luckily** Mark feels the same way and he says when he told his mom about the incident back then her mouth fell open and she just stared at him. But sis said she's not apologizing. Fine. F*ck her. Anywho, the nephew is OK. Has grown out of being squirrely, got his Eagle Scout status a couple years ago and is currently restoring one of the family's back log of classic Mustangs. Lots of hoopla for us to go up there just for the ceremony, but it wouldn't be right to stay away. Not sure what we'll do for Memorial Day, though. We usually go up there but I don't think we will 2 weekends in a row. ++ Your visit sounds a lot more enjoyable. Too bad it won't be longer. Have a great time!!
Wallaby is wolfin down his original Iams chow again but that's not stoppng him from pausin between to look up at me meowin on the chance i'll cave and put out a full buffet again ....must practice sayin "no" to him ....it's very hard.. My office was in 1 World Trade Center on Sept 11, we lost collegues and consultants who were working for us...I was on assignment in Bloomfield NJ when it happened....i lived through the acrid smoke for months afterwards and still wish they hadn't rebuilt the thing...so no I don't plan on visiting this terrorist bait anytime soon.
Friends of my ex's family had a ranch in Caribou country a couple hours north of here. On the property are 4-5 cabins starting from original settlers through to the log house they live in now. We stayed in a tiny cabin with a loft. No idea how/why someone way back when decided to traverse down the side of a mountain and set up a ranch. http://www.phototalk.ca/?p=1212 couple of pictures someone posted of the area.
*drops out of high warp and goes into standard orbit* Ohai, there. :-) Yeah, I'm off next week. The only caveat is I've got to work tomorrow. :-p Thanks. I was supposed to go today, but my friend I'm going with had to work and he's going to be tied up all weekend. Hopefully we get to go one day next week. I'm dying to see it. Honestly, I don't mind the suit. I'm just glad he looks like what he's looked like for years, more or less. Unlike *ahem* 1998 *ahem* *ahem*. :-) Muchas gracias. I try. Haven't been here much to do more. I've got too much going on here and I haven't felt funny lately. Hopefully I get to recharge my funny batteries. Glad to hear you're enjoying the new greenhouse. It looks awesome. Well, just got new orders, so I'll be warping back out. I'll be passing by this system again soon, so until then, Live Long And Make It So. :-) TTYL.
Love the "kitty" menu! Congrats!! Yeah, those race horses are beauties all right. I'll be pulling for the Derby winner but he'll have a harder time holding off the competition in this one as it's a longer race. I'm glad the shopping went so well. You really made a good haul! I'm amazed you managed to get her to try all the clothes on, especially in those teeny boxes they call dressing rooms. No, Chuck's not working, tho he is still keeping an eye out for something. He and a couple of his buds are trying to get a trip to Kansas organized to go turkey hunting. One of the guys has a cabin up there and they try to go every year. Have a great visit with your BFFs! I know y'all will have a blast!!
