The Best Of My Best. Enjoy!

Random Favourites

It's been a while, hasn't it? Well, I been busy--sort of. I've had 2 months off work and tomorrow I take my first load of the season. It's just a short haul, but I guess I'm ready to go back to join the working week. A fellow can't stay on vacation forever, I guess :shrug:

Had a week in sunny Minnesota at the end of March. Not my first choice of places to go at any time but that's where my wife's family is and they needed her to be there for her dad's funeral so I made sure she got there. It was a sad week, but my wife is doing ok after with some expected bouts of sadness here and there.

Things like this always make me wonder about the Circle of Life and all that jazz but I seem to always come back to the idea that I'm here for now and so is everybody else and I will just live until I die. Not a lot anybody can do about it and not one soul alive today will get out of this life alive that's for sure! Enjoy your time, love those who pass through and always remember that today is tomorrow's past tense so you might as well howl at the moon and laugh like a hyena today! :lol:

Anyway, all that maudlin stuff brings me down and I don't wish to feel that today--I feel it too often. Today, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the sky is blue :aww: I've got some wave petunias to plant when the Snow Demons decide to finally exit--maybe I will get them in the ground in a week or two--and some flower seeds from some dear friends in Romania to sow. (I'm excited to see them when they bloom!) Bianca and Cristian :iconbiutz: & :iconchildofstar:had sent some to me in a Christmas package but those were lost when the FedEx truck caught fire and burned to the ground :( Fortunately, Doc and his wife Alice :icontthealer56: & :iconladyaliceofoz: had a couple extra packages so they gave them to me to plant :aww:

I'm also quite surprised to see that the oriental and stargazer lily bulbs I planted last year are sending up shoots already! :wow: Now, all I have to worry about is Jack Frost nipping them off before it gets to be truly spring here in South Dakota.

Well, I'm off to spade up some of last years flowerbed & put down some Osmocote fertilizer before sowing those Romanian seeds :eager: Later Gators!

Thanks kindly, John :icondullvivid:

I'm sort of surprised not to see any photo's of the recent Blood Moon by yo. NY was way overcast and we couldn't see a thing of it. Disappointing because the next one won't be for like another 80 years :shrug:
