Father's Voice
 
"No need to get home early;
the car can see in the dark."
He wanted me to be rich
the only way we could,
easy with what we had.
 
And always that was his gift,
given for me ever since,
easy gift, a wind
that keeps on blowing for flowers
or birds wherever I look.
 
World, I am your slow guest,
one of the common things
that move in the sun and have
close, reliable friends
in the earth, in the air, in the rock.
 
William Stafford
 
 
 
(This poem was picked by my sister to eulogize Dad)

The Tallest ........

AND THE DIRTIEST MEMORY JUG EVER............(at least in my collection)


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This jug appears to me to be quite old, which reminds me.......
lately I have seen a jug or two on Ebay that
the seller has described as old, or as
coming from an estate sale.
A couple of these I questioned as to whether they
really were as old as the seller was saying.
One actually looked fairly new to me.
I am certainly no expert, but just wanted to pass along a
warning to be careful, look the jug over closely if you are
thinking of buying and age is a factor in
whether you want to purchase the jug or not.

I Found This...........


When I was out and about a couple of days ago.

                                                                                
 
I was junking around looking for a few mens ties to
use in a project.............
 
 
I found other ties to cut up,
but I don't think I can cut this one.
 
 
Fish with bling.....................
 
 
This one I might have to wear.

GARDEN RUIN.......

I think I need this..................


                                                                 
 
 
We just redid two of the raised beds in our garden.....
a mole had gotten in and raised havoc ,
so as the peas ended we dug out the beds and put down wire
to keep them out.
As each bed finishes we will redo it.
A lot of work all because of a mole!!!
 
 
 
Then I found this on Pinterset..........
When I showed these pictures to Gary he just groaned.
 
Please Gary, I NEED this!!
I think our vegetables will taste so much better
if we have this..........

HAPPY BIRTHDAY .........HIS HOLINESS .......

  TENZIN GYATSO..................      
 
   THE 14th DALAI LAMA...........
                                                      



                         
 
Born July 6, 1935

"The planet does not need more 'successful people'.
The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers 
and lovers of all kinds. It needs people to live well in their places.
It needs people with moral courage willing to join the struggle to make
the world habitable and humane and these qualities
have little to do with success as our culture has set."
 
H.H. The Dalai Lama
 
 
Happy 79th   Birthday  Your  Holiness!!!
 
Long Life to the Dalai Lama......
 
The world needs you!!
