Hi there

I just got home from work. Struggling with the suddenly noticeable difference in daylight the past week or so. Beautiful weather here and sunset was gorgeous on my drive towards it though. I have not planted my babies yet! It was really hot the first couple of days I brought them home and then this has been a busy weekend for work for me. I’ll get them in the next few days though. Gotta find some thick gloves to do it as they are sharp. John is good. Will head down to see him shortly here. He does have a notable lean. I went and saw the other one on Thursday and the blooms are full open and so pretty. So many bees and hummingbirds around it. I tried to get some pictures of the hummers but am not quick enough. I am gonna be really really sad when John comes down. Am really hoping to be able to touch base with the owner as I’d like to bring the stalk home if he doesn’t want it. Won’t last forever but would be nice to have his symbolism for through the Winter. Just feel like this one is gonna be tough. Have not felt the dread of it approaching ever like I do this year and can’t quite figure it out yet. Maybe the not smoking? Probably some of it...late November, December, and most of January are pretty dreary here and you don’t see much sun at all for that time. More than Seattle, but that’s not saying much for that time of year. So, yeah, would be nice to have John around to carry me through. He’s likely set some world record already though. I got a picture of him from almost a year ago I gotta find. I’ll put it up when I do.

So, I’m trying to picture a wagon wheel mailbox...? Sounds artsy in a way. That’s pretty cool that lady can get that much money for them! What do people do with them? Reminds me of when I lived in the South and driving across the Georgia countryside how folks would have these big old tractor tire planters. Then there are the bathtubs with Virgin Mary statues in them... funny stuff. I’ve seen an old toilet in a yard made into a planter too. But hey...I have a St Francis statue in my my back yard. I like him. He’s holding a bunny. 
Well, don’t worry about the lozenges too much. Other than hurting your mouth, which isn’t fun, they aren’t hurting you in the grand scheme. I know the feeling though of just wanting to be done with it all. Your just writing chapters with it. Soon the book will take a turn and have other plot twists. 
Yoir neighbor sounds like a hoot! Sounds like he misses feeling useful. And yes...Love is a verb. A mysterious verb.

Gosh, those wagon wheels. Just decor, I guess. They were everywhere and it was very dated. Down the way a lady has a washing machine filled with flowers. Very montana. I keep teasing my husband that we should get an old microwave and use it as a planter. I guess to each his own. I have a couple of traditional looking gnomes but I have them in back because kids gnomenap a lot. One year a lot of people were missing their gnomes and they found them on top of the high school. You had to come identify yours. Luckily I did not lose a gnome that summer. Yes, my neighbor is a pain but we do try to be patient with him. You should talk to johns owner i bet they'll let you have a nip. You do love him so. He's brought you a lot of things and I'd hate to see you lose them.
