Happy Mothers Day to all the women out there. It's been 12 years since mine died. But, she lives on in spirit and descendants.
Two of my daughters have girls, and the other one is expecting a girl (Sept). That'll make 5 grandchildren.
Spring is refusing to take hold around here. A late season frost is predicted this weekend. Bad timing, as my strawberries are blooming. Small loss for me compared to my kids and their massive U-pick patch. We're crossing our fingers it doesn't happen.
Speaking of their vegetable farm, I've been helping on a daily basis planting potatoes and onions. I either drive the tractor or drop the "seeds" into the holes. Tedious work.
My own yard and garden needs some TLC. Of my original 12 blueberry plants I planted 2 years ago, only one survived. Being the stubborn guy I am, I have bought 3 more--bigger and more mature (and more expensive). I'm determined!
Between the bad weather (cold and rainy) and working or baby sitting, I've played several rounds of golf. I've also been mushroom searching a few times. Not much luck. Love those morels.
Just finished Dicken's "Tale of Two Cities". What a great novelist. It's never too late to read the classics.
And finally, for those that are curious, I've just about given up on women. Those hyped-up dating services are a waste of time and money. Guess I'll live out my final years in solitude. Serves me well!
