I want to say Good morning to you three this morning, I hope that you had a good restful night. I always worry until I hear from you Sara each day. I am looking at a beautiful picture of Misty & Oreo sitting right here on my desk. I want to leave this link Sara's Dog Training blog which will take you to something beautiful. Thanks Sara. DAD .
Here is my thought for today.
" Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. "
These are words of Jesus. Matthew chapter 5 verse 14.
This is going to be all for now, Thanks to all of you that have stuck with me through the years, and for so many new readers that I am getting. Some are so faithful in letting me know that they have been here, and some send me pictures and other things that I can use, I am going to write this blog as long as God gives me the strength to get to the keyboard.

I hope to be back in the morning if all is well.

Why was Monday a gloomy day, Dad? Do you mean the weather? I'm surprised there were no tomato plants at the garden center, because it is now officially SPRINGTIME. Hopefully you will get them soon. Are you getting help with the garden preparation? That is a big job.

Well, it's off to bed for me, I worked 13 hours here at this desk today and it's getting kind of hard to feel my legs... LOL. You have a good day and keep that coffee pot on, I'll be by again when I wake up.

Don't spend too much time worrying about us! We are all doing just fine. Oreo will be ok, it will just take time.

It is a gloomy day here. But that is OK, it will be easier to keep Oreo from running around the yard!

I am so anxious to set tomato plants even tho that is months away for me. I absolutely LOVE tomato sandwiches...I even posted one last fall while canning tons of them. I love your many points of advise. Thanks for sharing
Bless Ya DAD

Morning Ray, it is raining here this morning. How are you & Mary doing? I hope to join you folks for meeting this coming Sunday. I;m coming down for a family gathering. It will be good to see everyone again. I am looking forward to it with anticipation. Fortunate to have Robert Flippo & JIm Holt over for lunch yesterday. Needless to say, it was very enjoyable & I hope they enjoyed being here as much as I being glad they came. It is almost time for "Tomatoe" planting isn't it! I know you can't wait to get them in the ground. We didn't fair to well with ours last year but I am going to try again. Love to all & again, I am looking forward to Sunday. See you then the Lord willing.

Dear Dad and Ms. Mary:

Hope today is not as gloomy for you as yesterday! Mama eagle is taking a break right now. Your friend's pictures of Shanghai are beautiful -- we are the same wherever we live!
Hope some good tomato plants come in soon so you can look forward to a good sandwich AND some fried green tomatoes (MMMM!) Are you going to plant any new roses this year?

The national parks are looking nice this early Spring. Love to you both from Jamaka and fams

Good Afternoon DAD..

I need a coffee break and a chance to rest my legs...been in the kitchen cooking most of the day. Glad to see the coffee pot is still on and so is your smile.

Tonight the woman who made 2 quilts for my grandsons is coming by with the quilts. I am so excited to see the quilts completed. She included 9 squares made from their Dad's tee shirts. Sara will be taking down to the boys this weekend for their birthdays.

Be sure to check out the great photo of the baby eaglets on the site
they are just so cute and growing so quickly!

You mentioned ordering some tomato plants from Burpee. I am thinking about doing that as well. If I do, will they know when to send them to me based on where I live or do I need to order them when I think the time is right?

Enough of a break for now. Hope you are having a relaxing day. ...Sara's Mom
