I Just Found Out That I Am Rich!

Today was a great day! Linda T. arrived at ten thirty and she and Aaron walked over a ton of our dogs! Our dogs loved it, as did Tone and I! Thank you Linda T.! My day was pretty quiet today, and after we closed the rescue ranch at three o'clock—Buttermilk took Tony and me to Kerrville.

We went to Home Depot first, to buy screen, so we can re-screen Outer Space, after we finish painting the west side of our porch. Y'all, getting old is so much fun—not!

When we arrived at the Kerrville Home Depot—we realized that we had forgotten to bring our blue sky used paint bucket, so we could match up the paint! If you are over fifty years old, you will understand our predictament, and if you are fortunate enough to be younger—trust me—the forgetfulness kicks in as soon as you turn fifty years—and all you can do is laugh about it or cry! It's like suddenly becoming legally stoned on pot—it suddenly makes you really stupid! Personally, I don't like pot or feeling stupid, but there isn't a whole lot that I can do about it, but just laugh about getting old, and blowing it off!

Tony and I went into Home Depot and filled our cart with four rolls of screen, then we went to the paint department, hoping that we would remember the color that we had picked out. Sadly, that didn't happen—we couldn't remember—Laugh Out Loud! So now, we've got to go back to Home Depot, with out empty bucket, to match the color.

Before we checked out at Home Depot, I bought some more flowers, because I am putting in a flower and herb, rock garden—in front of the Space Ship!

When we left Home Depot, we went grocery shopping over at H.E.B., and then Buttermilk safely returned us to the rescue ranch.

After fixin' dinner for T. and cleaning up the kitchen, I went outside and planted my new flower- friends! Then I came back inside and read this quote in a magazine, "There are two ways to be rich: make money or desire less!" I laughed out loud—I loved it! And yes—I desire less, in case that you are wondering.

Y'all have a great evening! Here are a couple of pictures of my future rock, flower, herb garden! I can't wait for Kinky to see it! I'm thinking about putting an Eternal Squirrel in it, too!

Good morning Nancy! Your rock garden is off to a great start! I'm a little jealous as we're still waiting for things to warm up. I'm down to the last of my dried herbs. We can't safely plant in the ground until the end of May. So...I can't wait for the warm weather so I can plant some more fresh herbs this year!
