Only foliage for tulips and daffs so far, but growing like crazy. I think you are about 2 weeks ahead of me. We can bore everyone with our successive flower photos.

I showed you MINE...so let's see YOURs

Of course I am only referring to pink flamingoes and spring flowers

Took DW for a bike ride, her first since last summer. Came back, then went out to dinner, this time in the car. She hates "helmet hair" and won't be seen in public without combing it out first. I did take a picture to send to her sister:

It's okay, you had me going for second there.

So, what are (or will be) my ex-boss' plan for educating the little darlings? Or is that still a campaign secret?

With that full face helmet I can't tell if she's smiling or not. Her eyes are looking at you intensely though - can't tell if she's trying to look like a biker, or she's thinking, "oh just take the stupid picture already".

Mango "pruning", using a reciprocating saw with a 14" blade on limbs that are 6-8" thick. I'll spend the next day on "mango hauling" and stuffing it into the green waste cans.

We can see our ridge view down the gulch again, we'll make quota for Friday's green waste pickup, and I probably have another year before I need to do the other mango tree.

I'll get about five years out of this before we need to do it again. Spouse wants to hire a guy who'll chainsaw off the limbs and carve the trunks into tikis...

I don't know what the policy folks will decide, but I'm sure that it is a deep dark secret. The position paper that my friend is writing is background, facts and figures, and discussion of policy options.

I now know more about college funding than I ever wanted to, and it seems like an intractable mess to me.

Have you tried a pizza stone? I have never used one, but have heard some people swear by them.

Decluttered 2 clothes closets while the house was being cleaned, answered emails, listened to instrumental tunes, watch it rain lightly, got the snail mail.
I've been Queen of the Realm all week , but I'll have to once again share my own personal little kingdom in a few hours.

Yes, I got a pizza stone for my birthday . That is what started this pizza craze . I also have a pizza peel . Now if I could only learn to flip the pizza I'd be in heaven .

Went to an ENT for minor tweaking of one of my ears. After two hours of examining and testing, the doc insisted I have an MRI done today.

Sometimes a day can get pretty crappy.

Sorry to hear that! What a rotten day. Hope the results of the MRI are as good as possible.

So sorry to hear that - I hope the MRI turns out ok.

I'm thinking the ENT was trying to politely say "You oughtta have your head examined". I'm also pretty sure they won't find anything.

In elementary school we used to get minor and major tweaking of ears. Along with ruler whacks on palms, and other body parts. When parents found out, they added some more.

Do hope whatever it is, is fixable.
