A DELICATE LITTLE CRITTER ON MY FINGER…………….. (A butterfly's antennae are club-shaped with a long shaft and a bulb at the end. A moth's antennae are feathery or saw-edged)
Always sad to read of a fellow RV Blogger passing away. Although we had not formally met Hazel Bluhm of Class A Greyhounds - RVing With The Big Dogs we did see her at Blogfest 2015 near Quartzsite Arizona this past February. Both Kelly & I remember seeing Helen with her Greyhounds across the way that day but in the melee of people we just never got around to meeting her. Helen passed away after suffering a massive stroke Wednesday morning. Karen over at RVING: THE USA IS OUR BIG BACKYARD has written a nice tribute to her good friend Hazel.
THIS LITTLE MOTH LANDED ON MY KNEE & I WAS ABLE TO GENTLY COAX IT ONTO MY FINGER FOR A FEW PHOTOS BEFORE FLUTTERING AWAY
In Wednesday's post I had wondered how my cactus plantings were doing at our house in Congress Arizona. A few hours after publishing that post I was looking at photos of just that......how my cactus plants were doing. Thanks to our good friend John King (Sarge) who also lives in Congress & reads my blog I was able to see a couple dozen photos showing my cactus plantings were still green, not chewed off, & doing great with some of them actually having blooms. We also noticed the absence of weeds on our property meaning the weed spraying we had Les do last March was successful. We sure didn't want to return to a big yard choked full of weeds like we did our first year there back in 2012. Thanks Sarge, very much appreciated:))
Washed both our Pontiac Sunfire & Jeep Liberty this morning & that's about the only half interesting thing I did all day. Just not a lot for one to sink one's blog writing teeth into these days........................
GROANER’S CORNER:(( Since I was a new patient, I had to fill out an information form for the doctor's files. The nurse reading it over noticed my unusual name. "How do you pronounce it?" she asked. "Na-le-Y-ko," I said, proud of my Ukrainian heritage.
"That sounds real nice," she said, smiling. "Yes, it is melodious," I agreed. "So," she asked sweetly, "what part of Melodia is your family from?"
A customer sent an order to a distributor for a large amount of goods totalling a great deal of money. The distributor noticed that the previous bill hadn't been paid. The collections manager left a voice-mail for them saying, "We can't ship your new order until you pay for the last one." The next day the collections manager received a collect phone call, "Please cancel the order. We can't wait that long."
