ENTRY # SIXTEEN HUNDRED AND NINETY-SEVEN

These two pictures were taken in our front yard looking west.
Good Morning.
.
Time is so precious-do not waste it
.
BEGIN THE DAY WITH GOD
.
The sun never sets on Dad's Tomato Garden Journal.
.
This link will take you right to her nest. And the eagles will be very glad for a visit from you on this Tuesday morning. Several have mentioned to me that they do not think that the last eagle to hatch is getting the same attention as the first two. We hope that in a few days that he will be able to hang in there and get his part of the food.
.
THIS ONE IS VERY INTERESTING
.
THE BUZZARD:
If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
BAT:
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
THE BUMBLEBEE:
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
PEOPLE:
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up! That's the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem! Just look up.

Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!
Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and trust in our Creator who loves us.
.

Here above is the link to something that you will like. DAD.
.
We had some real good spring time weather Monday, lots of sun and warm enough to work outside without wearing a sweater. Mary and I took advantage of that in the afternoon. Here this morning at 3 A.M. the temperature is 42 and it is supposed to go to 65 today, but I don't like what it says here- 20% chance of showers.
.
We did get some of our roses in the ground, we placed two of them at Princess's grave site at the foot of our flag pole. You may not be able to see them on the cam yet, but it won't be long before they should be in blooms.
.
.
.
.
.
.
The tea and coffee is ready, I have already been trying it out. I hope that you can sleep a little longer, I will have plenty of both when you get here, Be sure and bring me a big smile this morning.
.
.
Here below is my thought for today. Lots of things spoken in the world cannot be believed, but these are the true words of Jesus, and you can believe them and depend on them to be true.
.
" Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heaven laden and I will give you rest."
.
" Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls."
.
" For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. "
.
Matthew chapter 11 verses 28,29 & 30
.
It is way over time for me to leave you alone for a little while. I have enjoyed talking with you this morning, these little visits mean a lot to me. I hope that you have a good day, that you can rejoice and be glad in it. we all do have so much to be thankful for. I will see you in the early morning.

ENTRY # SIXTEEN HUNDRED & NINETY SIX

Good Morning.

Time is so precious-do not waste it

BEGIN THE DAY WITH GOD

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

Eagle Web Cam This link will take you right to her nest. And the eagles will be very glad for a visit from you on this Monday morning.

Can we drink our tea and coffee and watch the eagles at the same time ? As bad as I need it I think that I can, I am not feeling the very best right now and I hope that this coffee will get me going. I like to start each day off in a good humor, then maybe I will be a little friendlier and kinder to all of you.

Our roses came in on Friday from Jackson and Perkins and we hope to get them in the ground today if the rain will ease off for a little while. I would like to see some of your roses, why not send me a few good pictures. I will have some to show you later.

I will be glad to hear from you with any tomato questions that you might have with your tomatoes, I may not be able to help you much, but I would like to try. Here is my email white6416r@aol.com we could at least meet one another and have a little friendly talk, and we could have a cup of coffee, and I do mean this for any where in this world that you may call home.

On this Monday morning we have a temperature of 41 at 3 A.M. it was predicted to go to 32 but it did not make it that low, I am glad because I do have a few tomato plants in the ground. just for safety I did cover them last night. Today's high will be 62.

There is something in the panel on the right side that I am proud to show you. It is my Visitor's counter, there are two of them, one is by name and number of countries and the other is name and number of cities. It is hard for me to believe that so many of you are taking the time to stop and visit me, but I do want to thank you so much for doing it. These two lists prove that what I say up at the top is true. " The sun never sets on Dad.s Tomato Garden."

Mary and I did have a wonderful time on Sunday. A real helpful meeting and then a good home cooked meal. And then a long pleasant visit with our guest Shelia. I did find time later in the afternoon to take one of those short naps that I like and need so much.


Click Here ------ and see something that will make you hungry .

Tomato Casual -----Look at this Reggie always has some real interesting things to show us. Thanks Reggie.


Weather-----You can give your zip code and get your own weather.

I always try to check on Tennessee Granddaddy He always has something to make me smile.

This link above changes type written words into spoken words. Try it and see. I don't hardly believe that do you ? Turn your speakers on.

Here is my thought for today.

"All the flowers of tomorrow, are in the seeds of today."

This little thought hangs on the wall right here in my office, when I look at it I feel the need of doing something now. I do not know who said this, I do want to thank you. Dad.

I had better stop before I wear my welcome out. I enjoy so much sitting down with you and having a cup of tea or coffee. It makes the day start a little easier, and I need that on this Monday morning. I will see you in the morning if all goes well. Smile and be happy today

ENTRY # SIXTEEN HUNDRE & NINETY FIVE

( Good Morning, this is Sunday Morning 3/29/09 at 5 a.m.I do not write an entry on Sundays, but I was thinking during the night that today would be a good time to look at the eagle family. Here is the way to get to their house, and I am sure that they will be at home all day.

Eagle Web Cam This link will take you right to her nest. And the eagles will be very glad for a visit.)

DAD.

Good Morning.

Time is so precious-do not waste it

BEGIN THE DAY WITH GOD

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

I am always glad to see Saturday morning again, on this day some of us can rest a little longer. I hope that we have a better day as far as the weather is concerned, Friday was a miserable day for me. It rained most of the day, and it was a very dismal day, maybe this day will be better.

Well it is 3 A. M. on Saturday morning and from where I sit every thing looks very good. I did get a very good rest and I believe that after I have had at least two cups of this Starbucks Coffee that I will be smiling and ready to face the conflict.

I am so thankful to my friend that sent me the Starbucks Coffee gift card, they will never know how many smiles it could be making around this world this morning .

Here is the weather report for the Tennessee Valley, the temperature at 3 a. m. was 57 and we expect to see a high of 65 today, but I do not like this showers and thunder storms.

It's time for us to look at those 3 baby Eagles, I think that it will be light enough very soon so that you can see what is going on up there.

Eagle Web Cam

This link will take you right to her nest. And the eagles will be very glad for a visit from you. If you get to talk to them tell them that Dad said to " Hang in there."

I will be glad to hear from you with any tomato questions that you might have with your tomatoes, I may not be able to help you much, but I would like to try. Here is my email white6416r@aol.com we could at least meet one another and have a little friendly talk, and we could have a cup of coffee, and I do mean this for any where in this world that you may call home.

I have a job to do this morning that I am dreading, I need to clean and fill all of the bird feeders, and as you know it has been raining so much that the feeders may be in bad shape, the wet weather really messes up the bird feed, but I think that I can handle it.

Here is my thought for the weekend.

" Come ye yourself apart and rest awhile, Weary I know it , of the press and throng; Wipe from your brow the sweat and dust of toil, and in my quiet strength again be strong."



Used by permission from R.L. Allan and Son of Glasgow Scotland.

I appreciate the thought above very much, without this rest I don't think that I could make it. Our plans for Sunday are as usual, our Sunday morning meeting and then a home cooked meal in Dad's kitchen. We are expecting one of our preachers to be with us for the meeting and then have lunch with us. We feel that we do have so many good things to come our way.

As you already know that I will not have a journal tomorrow. Sunday is my day off, but I do check my email. I hope that all goes well with you over the weekend. Smile and be Happy and content if you possibly can. I will see you on Monday morning, if my life is spared. Sending Love from Dad and Mary to you wherever you are, we will be thinking about you.

ENTRY # SIXTEEN HUNDRED & NINETY FOUR

Good Morning,


March 26, 2009




Don't get excited. This is not my main tomato setting today. Mary and I were at Stanley's Greenhouse a few day's ago and Mr Stanley had just brought out a few plants to put on display, and you know how I am about tomatoes. I just could not keep from buying a few. There were six Celebrities and six Big Boy's.
.


So when I returned home I set them out in the planter that is down near the garden, as you can see from the above pictures. I know that it is a little too early but if a frost does come I could cover them up, since there are not very many of them. Do you think that I am silly ?

I think that the first thing that we should do this morning is look at the Eagles, you already know that all 3 of their aggs have hatched and the little eagles seem to be doing good. We enjoyed them yesterday, seeing them being fed several times

Here is the way to get up to the top of that tree up in Virginia, I think that it is around a 100 feet high.

Eagle Web Cam ...This link will take you right to her nest. And the eagles will be very glad for a visit from you.

The weather would be the next most interesting thing to me, I checked it at 3 A. M, and there was no rain falling and the temperaure was 53 I hope that it stays dry today. I do need to get too work in the garden, but I can patiently wait untill the ground is dry enough too work in.

Now comes the Tea and Coffee, I should have talked about it first. I am still useing Starbucks this morning and I have about another pound left, as I told you it was a gift from a friend. Sit down right here beside me and I will see that you get a cup of your choice. And do be sure and bring me a smile, I always need a little kindness and a smile each morning to help me get the day started of right.

I will be glad to hear from you with any tomato questions that you might have with your tomatoes, I may not be able to help you much, but I would like to try. Here is my email white6416r@aol.com we could at least meet one another and have a little friendly talk, and I do mean this for any where in this world that you may call home.

I am going to be working with my roses today, I checked on them yesterday and there was only one that did not make it though the winter. I had them covered real good with mulch and most of the plants are now close to a foot high and looking good. We have a few new ones that should arrive very soon from Jackson and Perkins to add to our garden. We love roses and we would like for you to send us some pictures of your roses.

Why don't you stop at Tennessee Granddaddy house and try some of his coffee, it is not near as good as mine, I think that he uses a little too much water in his, but it will do untill you can get back down here, Dad.

Here below is my thought for today.

" Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid."

" Let your light so shine before men , that they may see your good works , and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

These are words of Jesus from Matthews chapter 5 verses 14 and 16.

The time has come again when I must leave for a little while. I hope that your day goes well for you. I will be back in the morning if all goes well. Be content, kind, happy and smiling if it is at all possible, I know so well that some days it is so hard to do, but we can do our best, that's all that God expects of us. Aren't we glad that we have a heavenly Father that know all about us.

Hope you all are having a good day today.

The picture below is of Levi, one of the special llamas who belongs to our friend Laura.


LEVI


LEVI and some of his buddies. Laura says that Teddy, the llama on the far left is Levi's older brother.

Below is the e-mail Laura wrote when she sent me the pictures.

"Hi Ray,
Sorry I didn't get you some pictures out on time. It is hard to catch Levi in a good pose. I will send you a close up and also a picture of Levi's older brother, Teddy playing "King of the Mountain" with some of his llama buddies. I should have some more pictures of Levi on his first trek April 4 coming up. He really looks good in a red halter.
Best,
Laura"

" And let us not be weary in well doing ; for in due season we shall reap if we faint not."

This is from Galatians chapter 6 verse 9.

I do want to tell you that we have been useing Starbucks coffee for the last two weeks, some friends of mine gave me a few pounds of it And I do like it.

ENTRY # SIXTEEN HUNDRED AND NINETY-TWO


GOOD MORNING TO ALL OF MY FRIENDS ALL ACROSS THE WORLD,
Spring is here and I am happy.
.
And I hope that you are feeling good, and able to smile, a big smile would go good with these flowers.
.

When I left you yesterday morning I told you that I did not have any more to say, well I still don't seem to have anything to talk about. But I have heard it said that if you don't have anything to talk about that you can always talk about the weather. So i am going to do that first and then maybe something better will come to me. 3 A.M. is too early to think anyway.
.
It is 60 degrees here this morning, and I noticed that we may have a few showers for two or three days. I hope that we don,t get very much because I need to do just a little more to the soil in Dad's tomato garden, and then I am just about ready to go. I am watching the temperature closely.
.
I was about to forget the eagles, let's go and see what is happening up there in their nest. When I quit last night the third egg had not hatched but it seem that they are expecting it maybe to day. Below are two links that might help us.
.
.Eagle Web Cam ..
.
This above will take you right to her nest.
.
.http://www.wvec.com/video/topvideo-index.html?nvid=343274...
.
This link above will tell you a little more about when the last egg should hatch, there were 3 eggs and as you see only 2 have hatched so far. I hope that you are enjoying this as much as I am. And I do hope that all of my young readers see this, be sure and tell your children about it and tell them that Dad said for them to look at it.
.
We have one new Outdoor Web Cam.The original Dad's Outdoor Cam will now be called Dad's Outdoor Web Cam #1 on the side panel. This will show the backyard area and the garden.

.
My new Web Cam will be listed on the side panel as Dad's Outdoor Web Cam #2, and it will show the front yard area where the fountain and a few of our bird feeders are located. Watch these closely we are going to be showing you a lot of interesting things. You might see old Dad out there some day, you would see more of him if he did not take so many naps, but he's old and I guess he needs them.
.
.Dad's Tomato Garden Web Page .
.
.I hope that you can find some help in the link above. If you do not, please send me an email or call me on the phone. ( Both listed at the end of this blog.). There is no charge for this service.

.
I am going to bring this to an end. I have not said very much but there is always more on my side panel, you can see a cam that shows you the North pole and you can see what the weather is up there, and a whole lot more things that you might enjoy.
.
I do plan on being back in the morning with plenty of tea , coffee and I hope a smile. That is if my life is spared another day. I hope that you can keep happy today, and be able to make someone else smile. Love you all.

ENTRY # SIXTEEN HUNDRED AND NINETY ONE

GOOD MORNING,



This video brought a smile to my face, and it might do the same for you. It will be a few day's yet before we start getting them in the ground, but I can already see them big red home grown tomatoes, I can almost taste them, there is nothing else like them. Dad.




It's tea time as well as coffee time. Hot Tea is ready for all of you who enjoy hot tea.



We are still having beautiful weather, yesterday afternoon it was 74 here in east Tennessee, and the prediction is for the same today, that will rush things up if it stays that way for a few days. I just now checked the tempeature for this Tuesday morning, how does 54 sound for us to start off with here a 3 A.M. I know that it sounds good to me. Dad.

Time is so precious-do not waste it..

Here is my thought for this Tuesday morning.

" Wherfore my beloved brethern, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath."

" For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God."

This thought taken from James chapter 1 verses 19 and 20.

What are you supposed to do when you run out of anything to say, that is what is happening to me, so I had better stop. One thing that I did not tell you about the eagles was that I know what they had for their supper last night, it was fish, they were enjoying it so much. I am gone but I do want to come back tomorrow morning, maybe by then I will have something worth reading, I want to thank all of you for putting up with me all these years. I hope that you are content and happy through this day, and above all keep that smile going all around this world. Love to all...

Beautiful blue sky, white clouds and green trees---All a part of God's creation.


GOOD MORNING,
.
I do want to remind you that the Eagles have hatched, Mary and I have enjoyed watching them, it is so interesting, I hope that you get to see the eagles, they are learning to eat, There are links down below and on the side panel that will take you there. Dad.



This is to remind all of you tea drinkers that I don't forget you either. See? The tea is ready, too!

DON'T QUIT

DON’T QUIT WHEN THE TIDE IS LOWEST, FOR IT'S JUST ABOUT TO TURN.
DON'T QUIT OVER DOUBTS AND QUESTIONS, FOR THERE'S SOMETHING YOU MAY LEARN.
DON'T QUIT WHEN THE NIGHT IS DARKEST, FOR IT'S JUST A WHILE 'TILL DAWN.
DON’T QUIT WHEN YOU’VE RUN THE FARTHEREST, FOR THE RACE IS ALMOST WON.
DON'T QUIT WHEN THE HILL IS STEEPEST, FOR YOUR GOAL IS ALMOST NIGH.
DON'T QUIT, FOR YOU'RE NOT A FAILURE, UNTIL YOU FAIL TO TRY.

We are having some very beautiful weather here in The Tennessee Valley, this Monday morning the tempeature is 47 at 3 A.M., and it looks like another sunny day. It has begun to look and feel like tomato season is near for us. And I am ready for it to get here.
.
We could not leave without stoping in at Tomato Casual ..and saying Hello to Reggie, He alway has something good to show us. I am stilll waiting on him to stop in and have coffee with me, he has promised and I know that he will. DAD.
.
I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over. DAD.
.
I think that I have already said too much, so I am going to stop, don't forget to watch the eagles today, and also the coffee is waiting for you to stop in and sit with me a little while, don't forget me.

If anything new comes in I will be back, if not I will see you on Tuesday morning if all is well. Smile today if you possibly can, I am going to try. Love goes out to all of you in every part of this world.

GOOD MORNING,

( This Is Sunday morning 3/22/09. I do not write a journal today, but there is something that I want to tell you. THE EAGLES are hatching, the first one was around noon yesterday and another egg had started, I am sure that there will be lots to see there today. You will find links below in my blog to go to the nest if you would like to see what is going on. I hope to see you in the early morning. DAD.)
.
There is a possibility that one of these Cams may not be working, and then they might, I hope that you will try them. If they are off I will have them on again soon. Dad.
...

GUESS WHAT? I've added another Outdoor Web Cam.The original Dad's Outdoor Cam will now be called Dad's Outdoor Web Cam #1 on the side panel. This will show the backyard area and the garden. My new Web Cam will be listed on the side panel as Dad's Outdoor Web Cam #2, and it will show the front yard area where the fountain and a few of our bird feeders are located.

ENTRY # SIXTEEN HUNDRED & EIGHTY SEVEN.

Good Morning.

"Every Morning in Africa, A Gazelle Awakens. It Knows It Must Run Faster Than the Lion Or It Will Be Killed. Every Morning in Africa, A Lion Awakens. It Knows It Must Run Faster Than The Gazelle Or It Will Starve. It Doesn't Matter If You're a Lion Or A Gazelle: When The Sun Comes Up, You Had better Be Running." Come by and I will hand you a cup of coffee as you go by . DAD.
.
This is good advice and I myself am going to try and be running when my feet hit the floor.
.
If I seem a little grouchy this morning, well I really am, so treat me as kind as you can today. We had a miserable day yesterday, it started out very well, but it started when we went to the drugstore to pick up a prescription. It was not available for us and no idea when it would be, someone, we do not know who had done something wrong so we were in trouble, Mary's main doctor was out of town. And Mary was out of medicine. So the rest of the day Wednesday up until near 7 P.M. was spent talking to every one that would listen to us. We finally got the prescription filled.
.
The thing that bothered us was that it caused us to miss the Wednesday night bible study, that was in Norma's home. And the study was a chapter that I like to read, Genesis chapter 22. Telling us about God asking Abraham to offer up his son. I hope that the day coming up is a little better than yesterday, anyway I am going to try and forget about it and just do my best today to be content and happy.
.
Our weather is still warm it is starting off this Thursday with a temperature of 54, it mentions a slight possibility of rain. We have had a few days of lots of sunshine. We visited the Stanley Greenhouse and the tomato plants are ready when we are. We have not heard yet when the cam will be installed, but I am sure that it will be in time to see us getting the plants in the ground.
