Good Morning.

"Time is so precious-do not waste it."  


"The sun never sets on Dad's Tomato Garden Journal."

It's early but I am ready for a cup of that good hot coffee.  What about you ? It will be ready in about 10 minuets, don't go away, sit down there and talk to me while we wait.

Today is the first day of our convention that we have told you about. Mary and I will leaveing home at 9 a.m. this morning.  We will be comming home for the night, We are looking for helpful days and I know that we will not be dissapointed,

    Florida Tomato Growers to Hold Contest and Tour

    By Vanessa Richins

    The Salmonella scare certainly hurt the tomato industry a lot as consumer trust fell and many places stopped carrying tomatoes.

    The FDA ultimately discovered that other sources were really responsible for the Salmonella infections.

    Now the growers are trying to win back customers and bring the tomato back to the level of popularity it used to enjoy.

    The Florida Tomato Committee will be bringing the Florida Tomato Culinary Art Tour to 15 different cities throughout the Eastern United States. These cities are : Read the rest of this entry »

  • This will just bea quick run by, I will try tosmile and wave at you, it will at least let you knowthat I am still alive and as mean as ever.  It will take about 5 minuets of your time. Dad...
  • I do always have my cell phone with me, it is o.k. if you would like to call me.   865-850-5763.

  • I don't think that I have mentioned this before, I use VERIZON for my cell phone service and if you happen to use the same your call to me would be free. I am sure that is right but you might check it out with the company  Verizon where you live.




  • Bye  Bye  Dad.

    Keep  Smiling.
  • I hope to see you for a short post in the morning.

  • Please READ THE REST OF DAD'S journal.

    Good Morning Dad, the coffee just hit the spot.
    So glad your trusty cart is back up and running, I know I would be lost without my 4Wheeler around the place. You, Mary and Jim have a wonderful time at the convention and don't let Jim talk you into eating out too often. He is on a diet you know. See you Monday,

    Hey Dad,
    I know you aren't home right now, but I thought you wouldn't mind my helping myself to a cuppa Joe.  I hope you and Mary are enjoying your convention and having a wonderful time.  Be sure and try to rest some today, even if the convention is uplifting, it still makes for a long day!
    Take care of yourself and say hello to Mary.
    With love,
    Vicki in Birmingham
