I guess it just goes to prove that “Life is like a roll of toilet paper, the nearer the end the faster it goes.” Ha. Just as well laugh and make the most of all the enjoyment about us to be had.

        The rain was needed but the sunshine is appreciated more. I can see the cabbage heads forming in our garden. The tomatoes are on the vine but still green. Our berry bushes are producing early this year because of the warm weather. The blackberries and raspberries are plentiful. Hopefully soon we will be enjoying fresh corn, beans and tomatoes.
