FEELING MUCH BETTER TODAY SO STARTED ON OUR FRONT YARD RENOVATION PROJECT

IT WAS A GOOD DAY FOR SPENDING A LITTLE TIME IN OUR FRONT YARD WITH MY SHOVEL AND RAKE

It was 4 a.m. when our land line phone went bonkers jarring both of us out of a sound sleep.  Erratic ringing followed by exceptionally loud bursts of static after the answering machine cut in.  Had to pull the wall plug to silence all the noise.  Not an ideal way to start our day.   When re-plugged later the phone worked fine again.

DECIDED TO START OUR YARD RENOVATION WITH THE FLOWER BED CLOSEST TO OUR PORCH

BEFORE STARTING THAT BROWN EARTH AREA WAS TOTALLY FULL OF GREENERY

Another nice refreshingly cool morning found me out in our front yard with gardening tools in hand.  Over the years a lot of our green growing stuff has grown over other green growing stuff so today I started on one particular flower bed in front of our porch thinning it out, digging it up, and starting anew with a few different ideas.  I began moving some of the hostas and flowers flattened by falling pine trees last week to new locations.  By 11 a.m. I was basically a ball of paste and had to retreat into the coolness of the house.  Surprisingly, after an hours rest in front of my big marvelous cooling fan I was re-energized enough to head right back outside into the hot sun transplanting more hostas.  However when retreating into the house again around 2 it was right into the shower I went and that was it for any further outside activities.  Oh my how that recliner of mine just feels sooooooo great some days.

GOING TO CHANGE-UP A FEW THINGS IN THIS POND CENTER AREA AS WELL

Goderich's Maitland Medical Center called this morning with the results of my bone density scan I had Monday in Clinton.  Everything was fine and the lady on the other end said it was unlikely I would be breaking any bones in the next 10 years.  I asked her if I could try some bungee jumping now but she didn't recommend it.  She probably wondered if maybe I should have had a brain density test instead of a bone density test.  I bet they will make a note on my chart for next time.

Happy to say, with the exception of my daily arthritic aches and pains, I am feeling once again back to normal.  No sick feelings today, no slight headache and my energy levels are coming back up despite our hot and uncomfortable humid weather.   Am so much looking forward to a month from about now when our late summer weather will finally finally begin shifting into the coolness of early Autumn………………..

GROANER’S CORNER:(( Three women are about to be executed for crimes. One's a brunette, one's a redhead, and one's a blonde. Two guards brings the brunette forward, and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She says no, and the executioner shouts, "Ready . . . Aim . . ." Suddenly the brunette yells, "earthquake!!" Everyone is startled and looks around. She manages to escape. The angry guards then bring the redhead forward, and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She says no, and the executioner shouts, "Ready . . . Aim . . ." The redhead then screams, "tornado!!" Yet again, everyone is startled and looks around. She too escapes execution. By this point, the blonde had figured out what the others did. The guards bring her forward, and the executioner asks if she has any last requests. She also says no, and the executioner shouts, Ready . . . Aim . . ."
The blonde shouts, "fire!!"

Little Johnny's father noticed that Johnny was spending way too much time playing computer games. In an effort to motivate Little Johnny into focusing more attention on his schoolwork, his father said, "When Abe Lincoln was your age, he was studying books by the light of the fireplace."
Little Johnny replied, "When Abe Lincoln was your age Dad, he was The President of the United States."

A four-year-old girl was learning to say the Lord's Prayer. She was reciting it all by herself without help from her mother.  She said, "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us some e-mail."
