  • “For better or for worse, in sickness and in health …” those words came to mind as I was setting up the Continuous Passive Motion machine this morning. 
  • I did something this week that I’ve never done before. I helped to build a scarecrow. This was the final episode in a summer long project working with a great group of kids and their garden. 
  • Here we go again. 
  • It is the height of the gardening season. 
  • Sometimes a time-out can be a good thing. My three-year old grandson, Nicholas, and I were playing one evening. I won our sword fight or whatever it was we were playing. He put his hands on his hips and told me I was in time-out. I was not to get up until he told me I could. 
  • I finally got my pictures back. 
  • I’m making something today that I rarely make in July. 
  • A little over a week ago we were at the beach in Galveston. 
  • “Can we go down to the creek?” It was to be the first of many requests while we were on our recent visit to the grandchildren. 
  • “We’re going to the see-um! Do you want to come with us?” three-year-old Nicholas excitedly asked his grandfather. 
  • Sometimes I forget how long everything takes. 
  • The last time I talked to my daughter I found out that their school is out for the summer. Granddaughter Emma was asked what her plans were for her vacation. She said she was going to carve boats out of soap and race them down the creek. 
  • “Dick was an avid gardener, spending just slightly more time working his garden than sharing the fruits of his labors, often leaving small bouquets of roses on doorsteps and office reception counters, as well as boxes of fruits and vegetables." 
  • It used to be called Decoration Day and was always on May 30, no matter what day of the week it occurred. 
  • The call came out of the blue, as it usually does.
