Dec 17, 2020 - MY GARDEN

We started my garden in the last month of October with the help from Gary. This is my garden and I did most of the work in the garden with the help from Gary helping me carry the big bags of cow stuff and top- soil from the truck to the garden. I like to pull weeds and see the plants grow , when and if they ever do for me. I love to grow things but they do not seem to want to grow for me. The first garden that I put in had a lot of cherry tomatoes for the whole winter and the next few years the garden had gone down hill. This year the...

Oct 28, 2020 - Associates In Digestive Health

It is that time again to have a garden hose up my back side or as you can call it "COLON CHECK" for anything that may have grown during the last five years.

I started at 4:30 p.m. and it was over at 12:00a.m. This split dose bowel preparation consists of splitting your colon cleanse over about eight hour period of cleaning me out in the bathroom. Had to be at Cape Coral Surgery center at 7 a.m. and the procedure was at 8:14 a.m.. I...

Oct 20, 2020 - Gary Working Around The House

Today is my day to do a few things around the house,last night the kitchen faucet was leaking and I was going to take off the handle and replace the washer. Simple thing to do, "RIGHT", "NO WRONG". I could not get loose the screw that was holding the handle in place The screw was so tight that even D W-40 did not work. So off to LOWE'S for a new faucet and some thread tape, I knew this was not going to be a quick fix. What shall be a half an hour work turns out to be a three hour thing, you know the water hose is tight and it takes more...
