| for you Ric. I'd guess you are more than ready!
Anna, I'm glad you are feeling better. Dehydration is much more serious than most people realize. Bonnie knows that and I bet she faithfully drinks her gatoraide or whatever to keep herself hydrated and her electrolites in balance. Anybody know how she's doing? I don't think she posts on Cubits.
Sheila, beautiful old fashioned quilt. Some of the background in the border appears to match the cat. Isn't it funny how they love anything new!
I'm still trying to catch that darned gopher. He is not welcome here! I keep thinking maybe the cats or owls will catch him, and then another plant disappears. He ignores my trap now, after filling it with dirt a few times. I keep trying, hoping he will get careless.
Yesterday I worked about half the day at the co-op. The fresh produce order was very substandard this week, and when I got there the wholesaler's rep was there looking at it and the co-op manager was making sure he saw all the bad stuff. They wrote off the whole order. Some was salvageable if half was trimmed away, and the rest was pig/chicken feed quality. Volunteers including myself took home bags of stuff. I got 8 softball size cabbages that still need some trimming, half a dozen roma tomatoes, about the same number of kiwi, most of a bunch of celery that still needs to be trimmed, and about a pound of mushrooms that felt slimey from being stored with too much humidity. They were cleaned up, saute'd and put into freezer bags, plus we ate some in the spaghetti sauce. I've seen bad produce still for sale at our big markets, but the co-op has higher standards. They just don't have much to sell this week and no more coming for a few days.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
