I think you're the kind of guy who would do better with a Segway. Or a jet-pack! You can have my job - can yoo count by fives? Do yoo have a good grasp of the order the alphabet is in? Can yoo spot heroin, meth and oxy addicts? Do yoo have no desire to have any sort of life in or out of work? Can yoo read minds? Let's trade! Mum and I will pray that yoo hear from this job offer. He knows exactly what is BEST for yoo.
In good health but still no 'life'! Living vicariously through my Giants right now. So....If you had asked me yesterday how I was doing I would have said Fantastic! Today....not so much. I've seen couples slow-dancing when one of them was on a walker, so I'm game...even with the cane!! :D
I'm stressed yet blessed. Lost Mrs. Norris but gained Cubby, Miss Isabella and Cassiopeia. Computer died and had to get a new one. Had to learn Windows 8. Work keeps upping the ante on hours per week (42 and rising!) but I FINALLY have some time off until November. Unplugged the phone. Tell no one! Good to hear you are still fighting the good fight. Canes? Have yoo thought about a Hover-Round? (snerk) Stay outta the gopher holes, K?
I'm happy to say that I'm still alive so far, and that counts for something! :o) I started a part time job to try and get some food on the table again.. it's been quite an awful and scary experience to not afford a loaf of bread. I'm trying my best, so I'll just have to hope for the best and see what happens? I'll check on you again to see if you lost that cane yet, later on. I'm glad to hear from you that you are recovering okay. That physical therapy must be working!
ROFL I now have this picture in my head of naked ladies popping out of the ground here and there. I am asuming you are refering to some kind of flower though. I will have to get one of the books then - they come out by region I think? Or is it just one big book. I know when we used to get Sunset magazine we got the Pac NW edition.
ED that the interview went very well. Keeping all fingers and toes crossed. It's about time something very good happens for you. Yay you for being able to be involved in the parade. you will be back to your over achiever status in no time :) Thanks much for the flower tips. I have several gardening books but the Bend area has a lot of weird micro climates and what will do well in one place, won't a mile away. Been working with a couple of local nurseries who eally know the area down to the street where we live. Suh a plus to have that expertise on tap. All the perrenials I got were rated down to at least -10. I did get two red Gaillardia and they bloomed well. I had pincushions before in WA and will try them next year. All in all I have about 30 diffferent kinds of perennials planted (counting the rock plants). Hope most of them make it. Herbs are pretty cheap so I will do like I did this year and planted small ones in a big round planter in the greenhouse and it was enough for snipping for cooking and will use them as long as they last. This spring we did see lilacs in yard and at the nurseries so we're exploring where we might plant one. I love rhodies and we got two very hardy ones for the front. Planted a bunch of dffies, crocus, aneones, bearded and Dutch iris ad anemones in an ovalplanting area around a big pine in front. Am excited to see them come up I especially love daffies and in WA had hundreds of them
They called you back for a second interview? I have a REALLY good feeling about this, my friend! And just the fact that you can feel frustrated about not healing as rapidly as you would like says you are working flat out and giving every thing you have to succeed and you will keep seeing progress. You are WAY overdue for some good luck! I take that back-for some GREAT luck!!!!
Heck yeah, I can sure undestand that after what you went through. I bet your eyes are constantly moving on the lookout for idjit drivers. We have the heat here, just not as long a gorwing season. I always grew Cosmos from seed in WA may try them here next year but I think I need to start them in the greenhouse. I did grow some sunflowers here this year but they only grew about 1/2 the size as the ones I grew in WA. Gardening is a lovely challenge and I am looking forward to net year already. Keep on getting stronger. I am still aazed ow quickly you recperated from this considering the considerable physical traua. You are a srong willed man aifinkso :)
