Now that Spring is finally here, and grass is being mowed, wouldn’t it be nice if they made lawn-mower handles more adjustable, so tall people could use them whithout bending over, thereby not develop back pain in the process of tidying up the yard?
How cold has Spring been where I live this year? Well I have some pictures of my lilacs from six years ago when they were in full bloom on April 20th. On May 3rd this year, they haven’t bloomed yet.
Does anyone reading this know of a good way to get rid of English ivy, or how to destroy wild onions? I’d like to kill the ivy without annoying my lilacs. My onion problem is so bad this year, I’m thinking of renaming my family home “Vidalia Acres.”
What can I get Saint Karen (who must be a saint to put up with me) for her birthday, and Mother’s Day? They’re always close together and sometimes fall on the same day. I usually get her separate presents. Twice before, I’ve gotten her one big, combined present for the two events. Once, I bought her an iPad, and the other time, a 60” tv for the living room. Unless someone has a better idea, and even if they do, this year, I’m getting another combined present: I’m taking her to California to visit our son.
I was telling one of my doctors about all the muscle pain I’ve been experiencing. He started complaining to me that he’s sore all over too. Do you know what that means? I think it means I need to find a younger doctor.
