I love Buttercups. I guess they are actually a weed but I still like them and think they are pretty up against the barn. I love yellow, it is so cheery.
Have a few more things in bloom. Got lots of Wave petunias put in this afternoon. They are just so easy and you don't have to deadhead them. They get really full and lush with minimum effort.
Had the television on while getting dinner tonight and they were advertising a retirement community on the coast that has some openings. 55 and older. I now qualify for assisted living. When did I get old?
One of our Mickey D's in town has a retro motif that's kind of cute. I was going through the drive thru for a nutritious lunch the other day (cheeseburger Happy Meal, hey, I like the toys!) and snapped a few shots.
If any of you were watching the CBS evening news with Katie Cou*ric tonight (Friday) there was a truly heartwarming story about Old Town, Maine which is a short distance from here. There is a 35 year old lady there with invasive bone cancer with a husband and four children. The husband lost his job when the paper mill shut down and their home was in terrible condition. They applied for that ultimate makeover show but didn't get chosen so the community pitched in and built them a new home in 22 days.
Now this isn't a huge fancy home but it's new, clean, everything works, just a dream come true for this family. I am so glad that this young mother lived long enough to be able to enjoy this home with her family. She has a wonderful attitude and plans on beating this cancer. The odds are very much against her. I applaud this small blue collar community for all they have done for her and her family. This is Maine at its best. Remember this lady in your prayers. I don't know her name but God will know who you are talking about! :o)
Someone asked me about black flies. We are the black fly capital of the world. They are a very tiny fly but pack a big punch when they bite. They swarm around you, get in your mouth, ears, eyes, you name it unless you have bug spray on. They especially like young children like my grand kids and bite them on the back of their necks and leave big welts that itch. They go away about the end of June and then we are pretty bug free and can enjoy being outside.I'm too tired to proof read this so you're on your own. Good night!
