Some glad to see you post again as well as read the good news that you both are improving. The Good Lord does provide, doesn't He
Glad you still have your Cub and your garden has been well tended for you in the meantime.
Also, George has a good idea
, the cane will be of great help. I had to use one for almost 4 years before I could walk again without it, but it certainly helped me have mobility and prevent falls.
Got a question --
What is Mayhaw Jelly
Never heard tell of that before. And ifn you got a recipie for it, Em and all sure would appreciate you posting it in the Better Half Forum.
As for your neighbours Cub. You are right. $1200.00 isn't much, but ifn that is all he wants and he will be happy and at peace with it, help him sell it. Ifn you can get him more, than even better - it will be a surprise for him, and we all like surprises now don't we
Purple Martins - hmmmmm. There is a society here and they sure work hard at keeping the colonies coming back every year and there are a number of colonies within about a 2 km radious of me. I on the otherhand, have never been able to attract any Purple Martins and I have tried 2 different house styles. Maybe someday I will be able to attract them. Until then, I am content with my Barn and Cliff Swallows and the Bats that are beginning to call my pond and backyard home. They sure eat a ton of mosquito's and between the Birds, Bats and Trout, I don't get bit as often as I used to.... a good thing that! We have been attracting more and differing species of birds in the last few years. It is common now to see Hawks, Harriers, Peregrine Falcon's - Bald Eagles
(yes they are native here and are making a very strong re-emergence), Doves, Hummingbirds, Siskin's, Blackbirds, Grosbeaks, Finches, Sparrows of course and the every present Starlings. We also have at least 3 or 4 mating pairs of Ring-Neck Pheasants and a Widower who all seem to like the cracked corn we set out for them. Eastern Bluebirds are making like the Martins... not at my house.. but they are here.
Again, glad to see you back. May God continue to bless you both with a strong recovery.
