Our Saturday

Adam took his two horses away for the weekend, leaving next-door neighbor's horse, Snickers, alone.  Here's how she's been acting with her friends gone:



At the end of that half-minute video you'll hear a John Deere tractor starting up; Cliff sold his 520 on Craigslist, and the guy came to pick it up this morning.  Cliff is counting his money.  Also at the end of that video you'll see a crummy old trailer house that my mom used to live in.  It will soon be a thing of the past; because the people who have lived there for the thirteen years since my mom vacated it are moving.  I think the move will be good for all concerned.  Cliff is pondering how to destroy the trailer house; it ain't gonna be easy, folks.    


I love Craigslist.  Goodbye, 520 John Deere!


The peas in my garden are climbing up the fence very nicely, and there are already young pods on the vines.  On the right side of this picture are strawberry plants.  


Left to right in this shot you see potatoes, a row of cabbage and broccoli and cauliflower plants, and some onions.


Imagine my surprise today when I saw Iris actually go into her outside pen of her own free will and lie down in her little hidey-hole there.  


We went for a motorcycle ride; Cliff thought he had his strength back after his bout with a virus, but he was wishing he was home long before we got back.  He's OK, just still in the last stages of recovery.  


We went to Menards in Sedalia.  I LOVE that store; I want one in this area in the worst way!  


The end.

Sounds like a wonderful Saturday! I've never been to a Mennards. We don't have them around here at all.
Your garden looks great!

Snickers looked a tad bit antsy. Your garden looks great. Strawberries sound yummy. Iris looks like she's settling in. Glad to hear you had fun on your ride to Menards. I love it there too.

GOOD OLD MISSOURI, HOW I LOVED IT THERE.
A WONDERFUL GARDEN EVERY YEAR. FRESH VEGETABLES AND FRUIT.
NOT TO FORGET WILD BERRIES AND THE BOUNTIFUL CRAPPIE, BASS BLUEGILL AND OTHERS.
MISSOURI, ARKANSAS AND OKLAHOMA STRAWBERRIES CANNOT BE BEAT. NOT THOSE 'HORNY' TUFF ONES FROM CALIFORNIA.
AND THE LITTLE SWEET WILD STRAWBERRIES AMONG THE FLINTROCKS WHERE THE SUN REFLECTS ONTO THE BERRIES.
OH I KNOW, GETTING CARRIED AWAY WITH THOSE MISSOURI MEMORIES, NOW ENJOYING RETIREMENT IN COLORADO SINCE YEAR 1981. sam
