When looking around the place I can see a lot of ugly. Fall to me means saying good bye to a lot of good flowers and foliage. Among this mess I do have planted 15 new tulips. The stems from the sunflowers are in the tree landfill now and so it is just bare ground. My peonies are all trimmed back now and there are about 35 new tulips planted in the same flower bed in the front yard. I think the tulips will come up before the peonies but if not, it will be ok.
The color of these mums can make a great impression. I think most of them are now in full bloom.
The roof over this area was so bad that my wife and I had to build a new, steeper pitched roof over the old one 20 years ago, to get it to stop leaking. The guy who flipped this house sold it to me with a saggy baggy porch like roof on it. Needless to say, but I am glad that I removed that bad ceiling. I am not sure what I will do with it to replace it.
It is Thursday and the week has flown by. We spent the noon meal with two of my old high school classmates and their wives at a restaurant yesterday. I started kindergarten with them and have known them for over 63 years.It was like a mini 50th class reunion. Jim is actually a cousin of mine as my dad and his mom were first cousins. Jin is in Arizona and Bernie has always lived in Iowa but not very close. Adding all the changes to their bodies with new eye lens of the one and new knees to the other, I guess I need to get busy with getting my parts worked on. We have too many memories these days and it best not to remember them.
Well, Friday is coming and I hope all is well with you all. I appreciate your checking in today. Take care.
