OK, I know...some of you want something more than just photos of little bitty flowers. By the way, as pretty as that flowering pear is, it stinks! Not a nice fragrance at all!
Boy the fisher-people have been out by throngs this weekend! The parking lot was almost full over here on Sunday (wasn't our day to work but our co-worker found 3 people who hadn't paid and left them "friendly reminders"). We can't imagine how many boats were at other ramps.
There really hasn't been much going on in our lives, other than watching all the devastation in Japan. With all the crazy weather there has been this year and all the storms, fires and other varieties of natural disasters, I think someone is trying to tell us something. Maybe it is past time to listen.
We leave here 2 weeks from today. I guess I'm getting at the point that it will be nice to be back home, especially to have my own washer and dryer! Oh, and a larger fridge.
Yesterday, I had poured my "once in a while" cuppa coffee. I had my gallon milk jug in my hand (skim milk) and checked the date because I knew it was getting close to expiring..and there wasn't but about a cup left in the jug which always seems like it spoils faster the less there is.
Dan had just come in the door (which is close to where we have the coffee maker and to where I was standing) and I had just taken off the cap of the milk jug. I stuck the opened jug of milk under my nose and was greeted with an AWFUL smell! WHEW!!! I couldn't believe that little dab of milk spoiled that quickly! I had just used it the day before.
Dan asked me what the problem was and I told him my milk was REALLY spoiled and stunk really bad. He started chuckling and said, "I don't think that was your milk." Hhhhmmmmmm....ok, ladies with hubbies or significant others that have gas....what would your next comment have been?? Fill in YOUR blank here and see if it came close to my exclamation!
