    I am easily pleased it seems but we sliced up the first ripe tomato out of our garden tonight and was reminded that I have not had a tomato that good since we picked our last ones last summer.

    Teresa is braver than I am and checked out the broody hen tonight. It looks like so far eleven of the twelve eggs have hatched. Guessing she will bring them out in the next day or so.

    The hen hatched 11 of the 12 eggs that we put under her. We weren't able to get pictures with all of them in it since they are moving around so much.

    That, solicits a somewhat ribald phrase from the late 50s/early 60s.

    I'm not sure what it means.... :cool: :lol:
    "Look at the tomatoes on that chick!"

    (I guess youda had to been there...)

    This seems to be my week for cutting wood for my neighbor. The Bradford Pear tree that had 1/3 of it come down last month lost almost all of the rest of it in the storm we had last night. We lost power about nine but it came back on around midnight. The second round of storms came in about one in the morning and that's when the tree let go. I heard it crack since it's right behind the house but I wasn't going to worry about it till morning. Come to think about it, my shoulder hurts more than it has since I got it "fixed" so we are going to Nashville.
