Saturday Morning

The leaves have left the trees and we are in that short period of time, about two weeks, when we have bare limbs. Most of us have picked up the leaves on our little lots. That is a dirty and stickery job. We are not allowed to burn even in the wettest of times so they must be bagged and carried to the brush pile down by the dumpster. See? It is not all fun and games here. Butch and I have that chore behind us.

The cactus has 7 blooms on it. I am thinking that may be a record.

I have finished my other unfinished afghan...that is I have finished the Swedish weaving portion of it. I must now ask my friend Mary to do some machine stitching around the edges so I can do the final hemming and fringing.

I am now back to bracelets and it feels good and right to be doing that....So now that you have caught up you can let loose a big heavy sigh and say,"Good grief they are doing nothing!!"

Oh yes...Butch is golfing and playing pool.

Blooming Cactus of 2013

Once this cactus started blooming several years ago it has done so faithfully ever since. It has had several repottings and probably needs another. One of these days... This cactus started out as a teeny tiny little thing that son Gary gave me for a Mother's Day gift. It certainly has had a spectacular life.

Java still not fixed

According to my latest inquiry it is still not fixed. One fellow suggested they fire their current programmers and find some new ones.

What is Java technology and why do I need it?

Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. It is the underlying technology that powers state-of-the-art programs including utilities, games, and business applications. Java runs on more than 850 million personal computers worldwide, and on billions of devices worldwide, including mobile and TV devices.
Why do I need Java?
There are lots of applications and websites that won't work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!

DonWes Flea Market

Butch and I wandered over to the DonWes flea market late this morning. His purpose was to look for a quality caulking gun. Mine was just to meander around and see what I could find. Hmmm I picked up a dental pick so Butch can change my O rings in my dentures when needed. I purchased some lights for my bike tires, a new pair of sterling silver earrings and several sweet peppers. Butch bought fluorescent bulbs for the RV and a bag of popcorn.

Before we went to the flea market we went to Walgreens. Butch has trouble with allergies when the leaves drop off the trees and the new leaves start budding. So he needed some heavy duty allergy meds to try to keep it from getting out of control. I have trouble with itchy eyes and some nasal irritation but not to the degree that Butch does. So now we hope it is taken care of for this year. That is called positive expectation...hmmm.
