Happy Father's Day
Generally I tell my kids that I don't need any presents, just give or send me a card.
This time is different, I finally found something I don't have and really do need. I hope it is not too late for the kids to take up a collection and get it here.
I have most everything, Mrs. Jim got me these about 30 years ago.
They sit here, on our serving bar. They sure are handy sitting right here!
What do you think I do and see with them?
If I could only what they were saying! And perhaps listen to the golfers little, some of their utterances might be "R" rated.
To the rescue! A BIG EAR! Should I put up a warning sign on our back porch saying: "Notice: These premises use survielence devices, you could be seen or heard from the occupants. Use caution in your speech and actions accordingly."
And, I could take my big ear to the woods. What do the squirrels have to say today? And the deer and rabbits?

2. I think some sellers do have a privacy infringement notice but I could not find one today on the Internet. Maybe it's OK without my sign.

Adi Can . . . . . . . Help Jim with these poor Texas Golden Rod plants
Oh yes, first this. BP, our granddaughter, a.k.a. GC#4, has posted again on her blog. And she has been visiting us for a couple of days, it is a Fwd: Fwd: funny. She does have the ending for her book worked up, she just needs to write a little more in the middle.
Unwanted, killed, and dead by pulling. Jim pulled it out of his flower bed last week.
Too big for their britches, these were last year's gone to seed a little.
Goldenrods grow by spread of seed. They also grow runners under ground and baby plants pop up all over the place.
Mrs. Jim got me one plant for my birthday years ago. They were out of hand for a couple of years later, now we almost have them eradicated. They are what we call wild flowers in Texas, actually to most they are just weeds.

"He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him."
Jesus Calms the Storm
22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, "Let's go over to the other side of the lake." So they got into a boat and set out. 23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.
24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Master, Master, we're going to drown!"
He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25 "Where is your faith?" he asked his disciples.
In fear and amazement they asked one another, "Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him." (Luke 8:22-28 NIV)
