Knock knock…

Scuba Diving - Pelham Alabama Well are you wondering what I’ve been up to lately? Keeping cool and having fun while doing it. Over Memorial Day weekend we headed up to Pelham Alabama to do a little scuba diving. There’s an old rock quarry that’s been turned into a divers ‘some what’ paradise a couple hundred miles from the Gulf of Mexico. We spent most of the day there and finished three dives total. Would you believe that I even brought home a little sunburn? Even with a wet suit on I still ended up getting my shoulders, chest and back burned… that’s what I get for not listening during our surface intervals and standing out in the sun to warm up. While waiting I unzipped my suit half way so I could warm up. It’s a good thing I didn’t take it off completely or my legs would have been a little red too.Did I mention that we’ve started working on the basement again? One room now has a stained floor…its a good thing we have two more to practice on! hehe I think it still looks better than bare cement. Ok….it’s time to head home. More later.

Happy Mother's Day

(me and my Mom – August 1965)

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there!


still here

reaching out from the heart of a photograph
returns a forgotten memory from the past
like a warm summers breeze touches the skin on a still night
lingering only for a moment
then gone like a shooting star
to come again and catch you by surprise

Could it be a post??

Has it really been that long since my last post? It seems like everyday something comes up and I never get around to posting. For a while I thought it would be easy to post from work, but with most things blocked it becomes a little trickier to do. Plus then again I should be working too.

Last weekend we planted the garden. No seeds this year, but just plants from the garden center. If everything turns out right we should have plenty of tomatoes and yellow squash. My potatoes from last year were sprouting again so we pulled up those plants. A bonus for that chore was the small marble sized purple potatoes that were already beginning
to grow. Washed up and added to a pot of boiling water with a little salt and butter made for a great side dish. There’s nothing like purple new potatoes.

Did I mention that our strawberries are beginning to come in? Plus the blackberries are doing pretty good this year too. Add those two things together in a bowl with a little sugar and all your missing is the whipped cream!

Gee…I just came back from lunch and this whole post is all about food!
Surely I couldn’t be hungry!

More later.
