Dear Kitty,

I guess I need to look on my new app to see where the cheapest gas is.  No longer filling up the CRV.  Gas now $5.09 if you are lucky......  And so it goes.... $7.00 a quart for fresh grown strawberries, gas and groceries.  Maybe it's time to look into a job.  (lol) just joking.   Susan

Good morning Susan, Paul, Kitty, and all.  63 and 96% humidity here this morn.  The sliding doors

are covered with condensation, rare.  The severe storms and tornado watch yesterday missed us.

Wednesday night we did get severe thunder storms and our sump pump controller inside a plastic

container still got soaked and quit later.  I disassembled and eventually got it working again.  Got a

good deal on a spare on ebay so that's on it's way. 

Susan, my mom grew strawberries when I was growing up.  I sold them along the road for $0.35 for

a heaping quart and was overjoyed if someone let me a nickel or dime tip.  Was the 60s when a new

car was around $1300.  My wife said the strawberries were the best she ever tasted.  I do remember

mom asking me to help pick the tiny wild strawberries for strawberry shortcake sometimes though.

Still remember and see the field where we went picking sometimes. 

Glad Jim likes Finn, makes for a happy home.  We both love our puppies which are growing into dogs fast.

I have to be careful to wear a hat when there's any sun, even through clouds or I get precancerous spots

that have to be frozen off. 

Have a great day all.

Hats and sunglasses are always good to wear. I spent too much time in the sun a few weeks back in Iowa and I have some peeling skin now. 

 I have family in Ulster County NY. As a child we'd go up there and eat the various berries straight from the vines, never bothered cleaning them. When the country paved the road ten years ago, an aunt was given the 'honor' of naming the street as they were the first residents on it. She named it Barberry Street. Barberries grew all over there, so I guess appropriate. I never see them in stores, and I don't think they are common, but they tasted pretty good. Healthy as most berries are.

Enjoy the day everyone.

have a wonderful weekend....

Good morning Paul, Kitty, and all.  Supposed to be a cool day here around 60 and cloudy with a north wind.

Having a nice June, I seem to remember times when most of June was cool and rainy.  We are planning on

going to the Laurel Festival Parade today and taking the pups, almost 6 months old.  In my growing up home

town of Wellsboro, PA.  Last event Brandy attended last year I think.  Will be a challenge training the pups to

behave around all the people and an occasional dog. 

Paul, I love berries and especially healthy for a Diabetic.  Hope to go picking blueberries with grands in July.

The detox berry.  It's usually an annual thing we do together, though last year the grands didn't make it

picking with us.  My brother told me we went picking blueberries on state land when we were kids.  I do

have a picture of tall green bushes, in my mind, when I was little.  After a rain and everything was wet.

My parents had so many hardships in their lives wife and I didn't have to face.  I frequently feel bad for


Did some work on the Monte Carlo yesterday.  Had to get a new battery, change the engine oil, replace

wiper blades, and lube the front end.  Don't have grease fittings on our late model cars but do on the 85.

The paint is very thin, can barely touch the car without damaging the paint.  Lot better shape though, with

all the dents and rust patches gone.  Get lots of compliments every where I go.  Looks black until get close,

then it's purple.  Took the tape off the reverse lights, scraped the paint off the license plate lights and the

exhaust resonators, they are chrome. 

Also hope everyone enjoys the weekend.  A beautiful Summer.

Good morning Kitty and all.  Another cool morning at 42 and will drop before sunrise.

Sounds like your daughter and granddaughter have lots of fun, we do picking blueberries.

Our 48th anniversary went was last Wednesday.  Had a good day.  Had a good Fathers day


We did make it to the Laurel Festival Parade Saturday.  The pups were difficult but part of

their training.  Stopped to replace a blown fuse at the farm house.  We've moved the large

chest freezer to a different circuit so hope that will cure the problem.  I mowed a part of the

field around the house and by the road waiting for my brother to make it home.  Found out

someone is going to mow it and bale it up for mulch so that will save lot of time and expense.

I can move on to getting the chain saw running and trim branches away from two roofs.  One

of the trees the branches are to large, we will have to get the tree cut down.  Probably tie tractor

to it and put pressure on it while I cut it. 

Updated all 3 of our Garmin GPS yesterday.  Recharging the battery on the last one, then will be

done.  None of them had been updated for many years.  One of the newer ones was starting to

give us problems.  Moving it to the Monte Carlo SS where I can watch it and troubleshoot the problem.

Have a great day all.


Our wedding day 48 years ago.

Oh, the years fly by.

A bit warmer here, low 70s, enjoyable. Donated blood this morning. Doesn't bother me, but I don't think I'd like giving needles to other people.
