With friend Dar up in Wisconsin telling me it is 23 degrees and the pumpkins are sold the ground tilled and firewood split they are settled in for the winter. Here in the sunny south we have become farmers. We now have 5 blooms on the cantaloupe vines and just today a bloom on the cherry tomato plant. We now have two banana trees (they aren’t pretty!). Being a very experienced farmer I planted my crops so they got no sunshine, they were in the shade. So TODAY was the moving day for the tomato plants. I found a place where they will get at least 3 hours sun, I hope they like it.
I was afraid to move the cantaloupes, so I explained to them if they followed the path they have taken they will see the sun in a few days. They are all seeking the sun, I think that is neat about nature how if there is a possibility they will seek sun and water.
I haven’t gotten a wagon to get my cantaloupes to market yet, but I will have one if it looks like the four plants will have a bumper crop. I will share the profit with Sister Shirl who sent them south. LOL
When we moved here Mark found us a refer for $50. It is a little noisy but it works. It has an ice maker but we were never sure if it worked. Since I am getting caught with my playing I decided to check it. So just a few days ago I turned on the ice maker and poured water in the tray. Sure enough, it worked. I tried again, and got more ice. I came up with a route thru the cabinets and used a wire conduit along the base board for the 2 feet the little water line would have been exposed. The conduit looks like it is part of the base board. So now we can take the ice trays out of the freezer.
Tonight was Halloween (you probably knew that) we had about 5 groups stop by. They were having fun. That’s it for us here in Deltona.
EXCEPT for a note from Dr Darnell about this wonderfully made body of ours:
It's not possible to tickle yourself. This is because when you attempt to tickle yourself you are totally aware of the exact time and manner in which the tickling will occur, unlike when someone else tickles you.
I believe this is a 1955-56 Merc
