Colt finished out the semester and is back home for the summer. He earned 3 A's and a B. I thought that was great. It's good to have him home for the summer. We have plenty of things to do around here and he is a good worker.
Colt and Donny are a double threat in the backyard. Colt is cutting down unwanted bushes on the hill. Donny is using the weedeater to wreak havoc on the yard. They both bare watching. Donny's already decimated some tomato plants and shredded the bushes I've been rooting. I haven't got a clue what Colt it cutting down on the hill. It was so overgrown you couldn't tell the bushes from the weeds.
Scout and Kim and little Layla took a trip to Helen Georgia for their 5 year anniversary. They stayed in a supposedly haunted cabin last weekend. I think Kim heard something but Scout and Layla slept right through it.
I've got plenty of hosta lilies for sale I've been potting.
It's like early spring around here again. It's shocking to go from 90 degrees temperature to high's in the 60's.
Daddy is having trouble with his heart again and is having a dye test. He had a stint put in less than three weeks ago. We hope they can perform the procedure in Dalton and he won't have to go to Chattanooga, again. UPDATE: Daddy had the dye test and the doctors couldn't find any clogs so he should be going home by now. Thanks for caring.
Momma and Daddy took a trip with the old car club last weekend. They went to Riceville Tennessee, I think.
The Battle of Resaca is this coming weekend May 20-22. I think I'll go this year and take some pictures. If you are interested in local history this should be interesting.
Now that the Rose of Sharon bushes and the dogwood trees have leaves on them the front yard looks like a hidden garden again.
The 90 Mile Yard Sale on Highway 41 is June 3-5 this year. That guarantees gridlock on the highway. I don't even like traveling on the highway that day because cars will bow up in front of you to turn into a yard sale all weekend long. It is slow and dangerous, especially when you're rubbernecking like I tend to do. But I love the idea of revitalizing the highway again. It used to be the main route from Michigan to Florida. Everybody who is older ((cough, cough)) knows about traveling through the south on the way to Florida down Highway 41.
I think it's neat to live on 41 highway and be in the heart of history. It may become part of the Trail of Tears. Wishful thinking, but I'll let you know if it does. They are expanding the Trail of Tears to include 14 holding camps in Georgia. It was also the route which gave us Sherman's March to the Sea, in which he and thousands more decimated the south and caused the evolution of the new south in which we live today. It is also where the carpet industry began thanks to the chenille industry making and selling Peacock bedspreads and Peacock chenille bath robes along Highway 41 throughout Georgia. The highway is like a river that runs by my house, taking travelers north as far as you like, or south where the land meets the sea in south Florida. It is a fount of history and an economic boon for America that was the main route south until Interstate 75 was built,thanks to Eisenhower, in the '50's.
Dang! I need a flagpole to put my Confederate flag up this weekend. Now let me see where did I put that flag. Lordy! The weekend will soon be upon us. (Now don't I sound cultured? Eh??)
You have no idea what it is like this time of year. There is constant cat-rape going on at all hours of the day and night. There's not a blame thing we can do about it. I think makers of dog food and cat food should sell a dry food with birth control pills ground into it. I probably have 20 or more cats and most of them are female. During the spring the male cats go around humping the cats every chance they get. Most of the cats are half wild and won't let you touch them or play with them. The only time you can catch them is when it's feeding time and that is also ((DING! ding! ding!)) when the fights begin. Bitchy old pregnant or recent mothers are always trying to whip someone's ass. Have you ever noticed a lot of cats are like a bunch of women. The similarity is hilarious.
