Was the weather last week a sign of things to come? Or just a blip on the radar of what has generally been an amazing year weatherwise?
I had to go to work Monday just to get a rest and let my aching muscles heal up a bit.
I had no idea that on Friday when I mentioned I wanted to do some minor renovations inside my house that my buddy Jim Armstrong would want to tackle it that night and the next morning.
What an amazing event we have going every September in Rainy River.
Anaphylaxis.... say that fast five times.
Saying it is not nearly as scary as what it is... or so I discovered on Friday when I went to the doctor.
What a way to end a camping trip... getting stabbed in the back!
No it is not what you are thinking a person did not do something behind my back to hurt my feelings... I literally was stabbed in the back.
While we do not see that as often on television like we did a few decades ago when technical difficulties were almost as common as commercials, it does pop up from time to time.

My garden is just about done at least a month early this year.
Have you ever learned about the birds and the bees and the butterflies?

About five years ago my mom bought me a magazine on perennial gardening.
Hot! Hot! Hot!
Has it been hot enough for you?
Temperatures pushing 100 degrees Fahrenheit plus some humidity and it is the exact opposite of what we complain about in late January.
