Been meaning to sow some veggie seeds but just didn't get to it today!
Too many seeds, and too little time!

Late, Maine, Lyn, Ron & Randy,
Oh Kya too,

i had a bag with a few taters that had gotten pushed to the back of the pantry, when I found them they all had really long eyes so I planted them. As you see it worked out good. Last year I lost them all to excessive rain as did all the commercial farmers too. Those little red gems are my favs. I only have a few more of those but I have a lot of some other kind I think might be Yukon Golds not sure. Didn't get to cook them last night as Tim had dinner done when I got home. But tonight..........

I complain too, but almost every year after complaining, I still get more beans that I need and the tomatoes finally get ripe. Once in a great while, the regular tomatoes don't make it, but the cherry tomatoes will always come through for us.

Tim caught me in the garden with his cell phone and sent it to me at work. He titled it a rose in the veggie garden. LOL More like a thorn

MF and I went to visit our former pastor's wife yesterday and spent several hours yesterday and I related your story of how Tim posted the photo and your comment. As I told Ernestine, we are often our own worst critic and it just seems to be human nature. That all came from a comment that Ernestine had made about herself and the situation was just right for that thing that Tim had said. Ernestine is in a nursing home now but is still able to be taken out of the facility for lunch. She commented though about having nothing to offer at this stage in her life. I told her that she would have things to offer until she reached the day she took her last breath. That woman has affected so many lives through the years including mine and the life of my wife. I know guys don't hug guys much, but for what Tim said about a rose in the garden, I would give him a hug even if it made him nervous. LOL

Oh Randy, that is so sweet! Tim would appreciate your sentiment.
As far as Ernestine, I feel that those of her age have so much more to offer than most younger people. There is a wealth of knowledge and experience she can offer. I look in to the eyes of the elderly and I see history, faith and intelligence. I look into the eyes of youth and I see arrogance, ignorance, and naivety.

A friend of mine was telling me today of a trip they took back east. He and his wife are from Philadelphia but are out here to attend the graduation from college of a son. The trip they took was to sites that mean much in our nation's history, but when the two kids were asked at the end of the day which event was the most significant to them, it was an accident that occurred while they were out and about. A window washer had fallen. Dr. Joe didn't tell me about the condition of the window washer, but he thought it unusual that the accident made more of an impression than the historical sites. But I told him that it takes maturity for those things in our past to really mean anything to us.

Randy,
That is the things that gets kids attention today, the gory and obscene. And yes in maturity they will find an appreciation for history and the scarf ices others have made so they can enjoy a life of wealth and fortune.
