I do not know what else to call this page but a "blog." It is a general spot for misc stuff, photos, thoughts, etc.
6-6-09/10:30pm: So those sweet potato slips that Ardie gave me; I expected half a dozen rows worth...I ended up planting 488 slips in 13 rows today!! It took until late this afternoon for the ground to dry enough to open the rows...even then I was worried it would be too wet and I would end up pegging them. Even if I hadn't been able to use the tobacco planter I would have gone ahead and planted them. When I had set a couple hundred I knew I had more than I could save for my own use at harvest but I just hated to let them go to waste so I planted them all...I enjoy giving garden stuff away, so I am sure I will have lots of enjoyment. I saw that similar enjoyment in Pa; and all my Grandparents for that matter.
6-5-09/12:50pm: Over the last six months I have been evolving a website for an idea I hope to soon unveil. This idea is something I believe will be hugely life-changing; since Pa's death affected me so deeply during my design and implementation of this idea I wrote the following that will be included in a section when I unveil the website:
5/30/09 - On this date my paternal Grandfather passed away peacefully in the presence of his family. He was unexpectedly the first of my Grandparents to depart this life and I miss him dearly.
5/29/09 - On this date my paternal
Grandfather had a severe stroke. I awoke to the phone ringing just before 6am
and calmly answered. I was sure it would be about my maternal Grandfather with
cancer, but it was the equally calm voice of my paternal Grandmother. She said
"Your Pa is mumbling and isn't making sense and he hasn't gotten up
yet." My reply was "I'll be there in just a minute."
