    Jeff is doing a drive by to pick up his chemo. So lunch is.... 20181020_120843.jpg

    Thank goodness I got a two hour nap, or my face would be in my plate. Just getting too old to go over 24 hours without sleeping.

    My plans....whatever my wife tells me to do. But that's typical of my weekends anymore. Installing me LED lighting in the kitchen today. Afterwards, she will make her determination of wall colors and what style backsplash she want surrounding the sink.

    I think I have some of the best customers around. Last night a young man came in and bought a mum bouquet and candy. Like I always do, I asked the special occasion. It was their one year dating anniversary. Today, they are going to Omaha for a buggy ride because she loves horses. What a sweet guy.

    Blustery cold Autumn day yesterday here in Maryland. Wind gusts reaching 30-40 mph, temps in the 40’s, but we were lucky, we were nestled in our kayaks exploring the Pokomoke River near Snow Hill Maryland. The Pokomoke is one of the most northerly spots where the great Bald Cypress thrives.

    Here’s one of the mighty trees we paddled by.

    I can't wait to win the lottery, so I can go through fast food places and give the window person a $100 bill and tell her to just keep paying folks' bills til it's all used up.

    20181017_134617.jpg I kept meaning to take a picture of this tree for you, but never got around to it. When it and a neighboring tree started to change to fall colors, it was like it only changed where the early morning sun touched it. Weeks later, you can still almost make out where the change had been. 20181017_134634.jpg 20181017_134456.jpg

    Every spring I buy a couple of goldfish for each water turtle's pool. It amazes me how much they grow during the summer months. Then winter comes and I face a dilemma of what to do with them. I always kill them, when I try making them into house pets. The buried hot tub needs work in the spring, so I don't want to fiddle with fishing them out.

    I thought about trying to use the dog's water dish. It's a small sheep waterer. I thought of using a horse tank heater in it, because it's above ground and only like 2' deep. Ignore the frost hit water hyacinths. Thoughts? 20181015_095522.jpg

    At my old place, I had a 55 gallon drum upright for collecting water. Well summer would roll around and it would fill with mosquito larvae. I’d get a goldfish to eat them all up. Winter would roll around and that water would freeze at the least 4”-6” thick. Spring would come and that goldfish was still alive. No how it survived, but it did for a number of years.
