Time is so precious-do not waste it.
Wasted years shall never come again.
This is Monday morning and I do need my coffee in a hurry. It will be ready soon and I am ready for it. Sit down and we will talk while we wait.
Here is a picture of Kara and Zachary's new puppy. His name is Oreo. I guess he is my "Great Grand-Dog." Isn't he adorable?

We did have a very enjoyable day yesterday, after our Sunday morning meeting we drove up to Kingsport to see some others of our family. We did not stay very long, We were in a meeting up there at 4 p.m. that we enjoyed very much. I was very tired when we arrived home and soon I was ready for my bed.


Here is one of the famous Elephant Stew Recipes that Mary wants to share with you.We do not know who created it but we want to give proper credit to whoever did.


1 medium-sized elephant

2 tons onions, chopped

6 barrels flour, sifted

1/2 pickup truck load salt

Wash elephant and pat dry. Rub with salt and let stand. Cut elephant into bite-size pieces.This will take about 2 months. Set aside. Rest. Saute onions, stir in elephant, and remaining salt. Add ingredients to 1 acre size vat of water. Bring to a boil, then lower temperature and simmer 2 weeks or until tender. Thicken with the sifted flour and remove from heat. Serve immediately as elephant tends to get tough and rubbery when cold. Serves 1365.


Now, on to more serious topics. How are you all today? I am feeling better since I have had a cup of that coffee, I thing that I will make it today if everone will be good to me, a few smiles would help a lot. And remember it don't cost you anything to give one, and you may never know how much good those smiles have helped someone. DAD.

Tomato Berries: Heart-Shaped Tomatoes Are Here!
By Michelle Fabio

I would bet that many of us tomato lovers have looked at certain cherry tomatoes and thought they resembled hearts.
Maybe at the time we thought it was just our pure adoration of tomatoes talking, but now when you look at a mini-tomato, you just may be seeing the symbol of love in our favorite fruit.
The award-winning “Tomato Berries” by Tokita Seed Company are, indeed, heart-shaped and are being featured in restaurants throughout Japan.
And they may soon be found in a market or eating establishment as the little love tomatoes made a great impression at an international fruit fair in Berlin, Germany earlier this year; they were named the world’s third most revolutionary product.
Tokita Seed’s president, Iwao Tokita, came up with the new tomato about four years ago, but he was unhappy with the shape. He considered it a complete failure and even “rotten.”
But then his daughter saw them and convinced him that they were actually quite cute, and the inventor took his new tomato on the road—and was greeted with nothing but love in Germany.
Are you hearting the new Tomato Berries?

Keep checking on these Cams, the fun is just about to begin. SMILE.


Here is Dad's thought for today.


" Our Smile is going all around the world, don't let it stop with you. You may never know the good it is doing."

By Dad


I must stop and get busy. We have had rain almost everyday, and some of the thunder storms have been fierce, lots of water and wind, So there is lots of cleaning up to do, and I can already hear those birds. Believe me or not those birds know my cart and when they see me comimg their way they begin to come out of the nearby trees, I hope that I can make it back here again in the morning. Smile untill you see me again.

Those tomatores are really pretty. I wonder if they taste as good as they look. Smart birds to know your cart is coming. You and Mary have a nice day. By the way we haven't had much rain here lately. Helen

Oreo is such a cute little puppy ~ I laughed at the elephant stew (Now if I could find an elephant I might try to make that:o) but they are very rare in these parts ~ I hope you had a wonderful "Fathers Day" ~ thankyou for my Cuppa ~ Ally x

Dear Dad and Ms. Mary:

I hope Father's Day was wonderful for you, and I'm so glad you were with family. Your WebCam views are beautiful today -- your new fountain is gorgeous! I see two eaglets "branching" side by side -- do you think they're discussing those heart-shaped tomatoes, or maybe wondering where they can go to get some Cream of Heffalump stew? ;) Love (and SMILES) from Jamaka and fams
