Dean and Deaniacs are First!
Hey! I think you are all correct about the photo being a kind of rose! Google "white beach rose" ~ does it also become a big bush? Sweet to think I could grow it in Vermont! Thanks!Diving Under the Wing. . .
BTW, when I begin to type "Deaniacs" on my iPhone, it wants to autocorrect, but quickly announces: "No substitute." Troo dat!!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_rugosa1–1.50 m tall -- 1.50 metres is equivalent to 4.92 feetThe leaves are 8–15 cm long, pinnate with 5–9 leaflets, most often 7, each leaflet 3–4 cm long, with a distinctly corrugated (rugose, hence the species' name) surface
http://www.edc.uri.edu/restoration/html/gallery/plants/rose.htm-- three to six feet. Wonderful! Pretty, healthy, tolerant, smells nice. Could hardly ask for more, eh? Volunteer?
The one I saw was more than six feet high and wide!
Well, dressed, finally. Getting ready to go up to the meadow garden and do some more planting. Then I'll be *done* (with that garden) til harvesting begins.The town boys, BTW, were wrong about needing to pressure wash the moss. Dissolved some Oxy bleach in hot water, and working just a bit at time, with soft toothbrush (for the crevices) and soft sponge, it's coming up really easily, and no harm to the finish.
Actually looking remarkably good for a 17 year old car. It's a color that fits in here wonderfully -- somewhere between green and blue. Very marine.
Court martial continued to late July. Maybe I'll head back home tomorrow morning instead of evening. Depends on airline seating availability.Alan
I almost forgot! Today is the third anniversary of my quit! I'm so happy to be an ex-smoker. It makes life much easier and less complicated.SusanD
Congratulations! Wish my son would quit.
According to the online info there are only two unassigned seats on the morning plane, and they want $75 to change. Phooey on that. I downloaded some free books from Project Gutenberg for my amusement in the meantime.AlanP.S.: I notice that U.S. Administration muckety-mucks are all pushed out of shape about Pakistan not being cool with bombing Pakistan. Not terribly bright, methinks... If I remember my Central Asian history aright, the only technique of wholesale pacification that has ever worked in Afghanistan has been wholesale replacement of the former population with one's own people, the previous occupants being removed by a combination of extermination and sales in the slave markets. There's not much of a formal market for slaves anymore, the US government is probably too squeamish for the other part of the cleanup program, and even with the economy being the way it is I enough many Americans would be interested in homesteading Afghanistan. And Afghanistan is completely surrounded by countries that have bones to pick with the U.S. But we have iPhones, right? Pardon my bad attitude...I see that US military suicides this past month were half again the numbers killed in Afghanistan.
The kings of Baluchistan -- which sort of almost corresponds to modern Afghanistan -- managed to stay on the throne for several generations because the tribal leaders recognized that the alternative was for them to all be at each others' throats.
Susan! Congratulations!Replies don't seem to be working on this computer/browser/connection setup...Alan
"even with the economy being the way it is I enough many Americans would be interested in homesteading Afghanistan." should read"even with the economy being the way it is I DOUBT enough many Americans would be interested in homesteading Afghanistan."--Alan
Even another typo--well, you all mean what I know.
Here's an interesting thing... Reply doesn't work on my Mac, but it works on my iPhone. I wonder what the distinction is.You sure do get a lot accomplished, puddle!And Susan! Three high-fives and good-for-yous!!! I'm most happy that it means you're getting healthier each day and we get to keep you longer.Alan...Traveling Mercies! Hope you can catch the early flight.Bill, I have really appreciated your comments this week.And I still wish Cat would pop in.So, Mah*Sweetie and I are headed to Cape Cod tomorrow, back late Monday.The latest on our Baby Cats is that Spinnaker is fine and dandy, and Mizzen is at least eating again! She's still subdued, but the food and dissipating cold should turn things around over the weekend. We are currently planning to pick them up on Tuesday night. Cross your whiskers and hold them in the Light, please! ♥
Whiskers crossed!! (And yes, I have whiskers.)
Great reply! I enjoyed finding this, Bill. And thanks!
Congratulations, Susan!I *really* should be asleep at this point, but it's just not happening. Son graduates from high school on Saturday, so Mom and Dad are driving into town tomorrow. My brother--who is pretty snowed under with work right now anyway--will be staying in Chicago to look after their sick geriatric kitty.The math scoring is a real challenge--and unlike other projects, for this one we're only allowed to score from 7:30 to 5:30 Central Time. So, sleeping in seriously cuts into my potential work time.So, yeah, I really should get myself to bed now, and call Perkins back into the bedroom with me.That goofball scared the crud out of me yesterday, but the way. We didn't close the gate fast enough, and he was off like a shot. By the time I looked up, Perkins was all the way down the street. But by the time I got to the edge of the driveway, some nice young lady had caught him by the collar, and was walking him back this way.Clearly I need to work more on the "Come!" command with that boy.
Why on Earth could it possibly matter what time of day a test gets scored?!
Dear puddle...!Thanks for filling the gap!I accidentally posted two for the same day. I caught that fact early and was able to delete the extra photo, but my iPhone can't post the photos...as far as I've figured it out anyway. So I meant to add a new photo post for today once I got home to my computer; but I plumb forgot.It takes a blog village. :-)
We're on the Cape! The traffic is light and the weather perfect! Plus: Dr*Son is working down here for a day! That was a fun surprise! So we went out to eat, and he's staying with us at the cottage tonight. :-)
