So sorry but that's life right now.

Sring is busy and chaotic around here. I pushed for 2 weeks and especially this past week to finish making grave saddles and funnel arrangements for several family members graves. I finished them Tuesday so Wednesday, Susie and I took them to be placed...3 different cemetaries...then we went FISHING! What a delightful break in all this busyness. About all we caught was carp but we always throw everything back anyway and big carp will give you a thrill for the fight.

I still have much to do. Flowerbeds still need flowers and the dreaded garage sale needs set up. It's that 'ain't-never-having-another-garage-sale' sale...yanno how that goes...sigh...

But we take little breaks here 'n there and just go cruisin' in Susie's new golf cart. It's so relaxing and we both need that. She bought another rental property a couple of weeks ago. The mobile home is beautiful. It's wider than mine and has a really neat deck on it. I gave some serious thought about moving into it. It is just about a half block down the street but yanno what? I'm just too old to move again! It would be nice to have more room and have a deck with a roof over it and a kitchen with lots 'n lots of cupboards and a free-standing island. A master bath with a garden tub and a shower stall and a room for Zelda where I'm not crowded. But I've worked hard to pretty up my home and it's home and like I said...I'm too old to move again.

Speaking of flowerbeds...here's a handy tip for those who garden and have flowerbeds. You've seen on tv those garden hoses they call a pocket hose? If ya ain't got one...GET ONE! They are a most marvelous invention! I just love mine and they're so easy to use. I have a wooden decorative bucket I keep mine in but it would fit in something much smaller. My old hose and reel will be in my garage sale for sure!

I don't have much in flowers this year as I said I wouldn't. I still want to plant some marigolds and I need a couple of hanging pots of flowers but that's about it. I said I was gonna make silk flower arrangements to sit around but so far I haven't had time. If I get time...fine. If not? That's fine, too. I'd like to plant one tomato plant and I really need to get that done but if not? Oh well...

I've spent a few days this past week prying off my acrylic nails...OUCH! But working with floral arrangements was death to acrylics. My finger tips are so sore and tender from bending and stuffing silk flowers into styrofoam and removing my acrylics didn't help. But I think I'll leave the acrylics off for a couple of months or so, let my nail beds rest for awhile.

On a sadder note....I've spoke before (a long time ago when it mattered) about single sites spelling nothing but trouble. They, in the past, caused me lots of heartache and trouble. My experience with them goes back to somewhere around 2004. Little did I expect that my sister joining the singles sites less than a year ago would cause major difficulties between us but it did.

It's a long story and not meant for sharing much about it with anyone so I'll keep it to a minimum. She met this asshole in Florida who is a pathological liar. She's known that from almost day one. Then she started this campaign to prove he was a liar as he always denied everything. Besides being a liar, he's a womanizer and into cybersex and porno. She says he isn't what she's looking for but for some unknown reason, she is determined to get him to "see the light".

She's turned into someone I don't know anymore. When I found out she was going to Florida again a couple of weeks ago, I wrote her a letter...a nice one that voiced my concern and what did I get back? A full-on, full-fledged personal attack against me. I chose not to dignify it with answering her accusations. I told her to just let it go, it didn't matter...it just didn't matter. So....singles sites can not only cause a person cyber trouble, they can cause division and strife with family members or friends by turning you into someone no one else recognizes anymore.

Anyway, we may patch it up or we may not. All I know is...I'm done with listening to her dealings with this guy. I guess what will be, will be.

Now I gotta get my butt in gear. I wanted to pop in and let ya'll know I was still alive 'n kickin'.

Ya'll have a good weekend, be safe 'n keep smilin'....

Hugs
Softie

They are a great fight. You actually can eat them even though they are bony. How you cook them is to use a pressure cooker and you can then make fried fish balls or patties

I don't what it is as I had met so many cool ladies online in the nineties, but it just seems that there are increasingly more and more OC nut jobs out there

I am glad that you are enjoying your life

Don't even get me started on some guys I have run across on these sites, A lot of them seem to come from Flakes-R-Us, Quirky and unusual I can deal with but draw the line at batshit crrazy,

Not a lot you can do when people become OC about something, They just have to learn their lessons the hard way,

Thank you RJ..I was thinking the same thing.

Softie, your sister, you love her, but, she's a grown woman even if she isn't acting it. It sucks, but, let her learn. Whether you are there for her to lean on later when the bottom falls out on her is up to you. But sometimes, they don't want to listen, and you have to step back. I've had to do so plenty of times with my youngest sister because she's a stubborn little shit, and the more I try to show her that something she's doing is wrong, the more she will dig in her heels to prove otherwise. Live and learn.

My peonies are coming in nice and thick right now. This warm spring has got them sprouting up good this year, my mountain ash tree in the front yard, omg! It's leaves are full and it has a lot compared to last year where we had that week of 80 degree weather, and then a month of cold,winter weather where it only seemed to have half the leaves it usually gets. My catalpa in the backyard, it's leaves are bursting out too....I can't wait for it's flowers to show. And the ferns in both my backyard and my front yard are wow! They are full and thick this year!

And garage sales are popping up all over the place around here. Sometime next week, I'm planning on driving around to check some out.
