Apples and Answers

We went to the apple orchard today. It was perfect weather. I suggested we go because they always send us a $50 gift certificate. They are the ones who bought his mom's property after she died. He said he'd go to the bank and use the gift cert. the next time. He pulls in to what is not our bank. This means he is taking money out of the account I am not on. So I say yay and lets get to spending!!! If it isn't going to me if he dies before me,...then why not? Got lots of goodies and we really had a good time. Pulled pork sandwiches, warm apple donuts, honey crisp apples, fudge, and the only drawback I can see is that now I have to make an apple pie tomorrow. Why not. I'll crank up the music, dance with the rolling pin and,.......I will have an excuse to tell him to get out of my kitchen!

COFFEY - I'm a softie. I won't let him cut the grass because of his C.O.P.D. Besides, he has other things to do like messing with my flowers. Today he dug everything out of my half whiskey barrel (yes, I do drink whiskey by the barrel) and moved it for no apparent reason. Oh yeah, he said it wasn't getting enough light. My flowers. My barrel. And my bulbs/perennials that he said didn't exist.

WALKINGMAN - Thank you for telling me about the mower. I will look at our paperwork and see what it says about that.

SOCCERMOM - In the prev. post, I explained that I sent beans to all that requested them. I was only able to fit 5 in a standard size envelope. I forgot to write "Hand Cancel" on the evvelope though so,...let me know if/when you get them.

GNETCH - Which toothbrush should I use? He has about 7 in rotation right now. Yes, truth.

JUSTPLAINTIRED - I am already lost so I thought that if I followed you long enough, it might make me be found?

SHEN - I read you and immediately want to help you/love you. It is just an automatic thought. So when I read your comment the first thing that went through my mind was that I'd forgotten to use my mantra (regarding that special someone). Feel free to use it anytime. It goes like this, "YOU ARE NOT THE BOSS OF ME! YOU ARE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!" Say it out loud, say it in your mind as in, "he's not the boss of me." I am so glad you reminded me of this.

Peace.

Pulled pork sandwiches are the best. I can't remember the last time I had one, too long though. We're in the midst of Oktoberfest here, it's all brats and beer. Brats are fine but I'm not much of a drinker.

Well I'm glad you had a good time today. About time,I'd say.

Use them all to clean the bathroom floor and the toilet bowl. Just don't make it obvious. Haha.

Make two apple pies and i will stay out of your kitchen without being told. As a matter of fact I will stay out of my own house all together and go bother someone else who also is not my old lady.

Going to an apple orchard sounds so lovely. I really want to be able to go one of these years.
