Beverly and I spent most of last week in Knoxville helping Mary get moved to an apartment. It’s a lovely place where she will be living.
While we were at Dad’s home we checked on the garden. The tomatoes are growing faster than ever! We saw many big, luscious green tomatoes that will be turning red soon. Due to the recent dry spell we gave them a good watering before we came back to Kingsport.
Working between two houses 100 miles apart is very difficult. We have had help from my son and a neighbor who has been mowing the yard for us. That meant a lot!
We figure we’ll be spending a couple of days in Knoxville most weeks, and the rest of the time we will be keeping things going at home.
It has been selling very good. We are getting down to the end of the books that were in the first printing. Then a decision will have to be made to have a second printing.
I’m trying to take one day at a time. Sometimes it is difficult. I wake up early worrying about all I have to do. I’m trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I just hope it’s not a train bearing down on me.
You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt.
Joke of the Day
A farmer saw the vet one Saturday, while in town shopping. He asked "What can I give my constipated cat?"
The vet said "oh about a pint of castor oil."
The following Saturday, the vet saw the farmer and asked "How is the calf?".
The farmer said" It wasn't a calf, it was a cat!"
The vet asked "did you give him the whole bottle?
The farmer said "Yep,"
"Well, what happened?"
"I don't know for sure. The last time saw him he was going over the hill with six friends; two were digging; two were covering up; and two were scouting for new territory!"
