Dad looking at his tomato garden , he spends a lot of his time here every day, he may even sneak in a little nap here.
The best and most beautiful things of this world can't be seen or touched. They must be felt by the heart. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Dad and his Grand-Daughter Bethany on a visit home from New York. I am not really asleep, just enjoying my time with BETHANY. DAD.

Good Morning.

Time is so precious-do not waste it..

The sun never sets on Dad's Tomato Garden Journal

. Here is my thought for today, yes it is, it is a link to a poem that a friend sent me that was too long to post in my blog, Thanks to Drema for this. Dad.


This poem above has something good to think about.

I don't know what you are thinking about right now, but I am in need of a good cup of coffee, and it will soon be ready, then we can get something done, when is's ready I will let you know and I will even pour it for you.

Here below is our weather for east Tennessee.

The tempeature at 3 A.M. was 63, and it will only go to 78 today, and we are promised showers in the evenings.

From eBay to Website: A Tomato Growing Business

By Vanessa Richins

Their business began because of a friendly competition.
Alainia Hagerty-Williams, who grew up on a 300 acre farm, was challenged by her father to see who could grow the best tomatoes. T
he first year she chose to grow one variety. The next year, she tried 10 different heirloom varieties.
In her third year, she was the victim of successful germination, ending up with too many tomato plants for her own garden in Munford, Tennessee. She decided to put her excess bounty up for sale on eBay.

It will start be showing you the plants the day that we set them out and we will be able to see then untill those BIG RED RIPE TOMATOES APPEAR, be sure and keep up with it if you can spare the time.

I almost forgot about the Tea and Coffee, it's ready and it is so good this morning, sit down for a litle while and talk to me whil you are enjoying your drink.
The eagles are going to be worried about us this morning if we don't get up there soon, here is your ride up there Eagle Web Cam hop on and let's go.
This is going to be all for a little while, I need to get outside and do a little work, I have heard it said that you can't do every thing at once, but you can do something at once, so here I go. I hope to see your Smile in the morning, you know that smile that we have, going all around this world, and remember that it is understood in any langauge. Why not try it out today. Dad.

Ray, just got through reading that poem your friend Dreamasent. It fits Gods people to a "T". Enjoyed it very much. I also read about Robby. Seems I saw it aways back, can't remember. Never the less& needless to say,I read it with tears in my eyes. Just wonder how that teacher felt in the end. Our best teachers are children. Especially gifted ones like Robby. Hope I never forget the important thingsin life. Love you & Mary! Take care & be careful of the everyday pitfalls in lifes way. Have a great day!

Dear Dad and Ms. Mary:

Nice pictures you put up today, of you looking at your tomatoes, and of the heron! The eaglets are sleeping right now -- must be a hard life they have. ;)

It looks nice at your place today -- good tomato-growing weather! I'm enjoying the coffee, thanks. Had a rough day yesterday, so I'm going to try to rest today and feel stronger. Love and hugs from Jamaka and fams
