We built a retaining wall, a surprise for Mau. We were able to find out on Sunday after a severe rain storm that it does retain! How do you like those bricks LUD?
We set one of the containers that we planted on a rock in one of the gardens. It just looks so cute there. Make sure you look for it if you attend the party and Mickey make sure you water it!
On Sunday, Mickey & I went to the grocery store with a long list and purchased the food necessary for the real preparation to begin. Although the weekend was work we had a lot of fun, laughs and tears but, no tears in this pair. Another Agent 99 update. When I arrived home on Monday, I was greeted with a subpoena to attend county court; you have a right to a hearing 146 hours after arrest. Thankfully, the DA’s office called and notified me that he waived his right to that hearing. Now, I most likely will be called to talk in front of a Grand Jury. This is our tax dollars at work, such a waste.

An Agent 99 update; the Indian Reservation pawn shop sent an impostor back to our police station. Same model as her but very used & in bad condition. Officer said that they are not very honest. Basically they are a place to sell stolen goods. The officer told me if I want restitution, if she is not returned, I HAVE TO WRITE A LETTER to the court requesting restitution. Come on, wouldn't that be automatic?????
I am not sure how much GEL-Oh I'll be giving you over the next two weeks. Amie will be arriving home on Monday, I can't wait. I have lots of projects (aka work) planned for her. I am not sure what she has planned.
Everyone enjoy the first weekend of SUMMER!

I guess there is no such thing as safe small towns. : (
Lisa, Amie's friend and classmate posted several pictures of their Europe trip on her blog. You can go here to see them. Speaking of Blogs, Amie changed up the design of her Blog. It is so her and she beat me to the task. I have been saving up a new design for mine but don't think I have the computer skills to get the job done. Amie will be coming home in a week and will assist me. Speaking of computer skills, just when I think my computer skills are terrible I find out that one of my sister-in-law's can't figure out how to post a comment onto my blog. I know she reads my blog and I would love to see a comment from her. I love comments!! Speaking of comments, my son gets six or seven comments on the pictures he posts of dead animals and animals that he hopes will soon be dead. I post pictures of beautiful flowers and landscapes and receive three or four comments. There is something wrong with that.

You're a high flying flag
Tomorrow is Flag Day. Get out your flags, if you haven't already, and put on display. If you don't have any flags wear some red, white & blue. Wish I knew where all our politicians get their flag lapel pins, Mick would like one. I'll be attending our community Flag Day Parade on Saturday. Hope you all will be doing something you enjoy on Saturday and also on Sunday when we CeLeBRate and honor our Fathers. Here's to a busy weekend!!!
The photograph is of Mom's flag in her front yard.

I bought the bird herb marker for my newly established herb garden. This is my last bird purchase. I actually bought another bird for the inside of the house. NO more birds. Last night I made herbed baked potatoes for dinner and they were delicious. Yes, it was 85 and I turned the oven on.

My favorite sign of the weekend was at a local bakery. This would be my kind of diet!

The first & the last pictures ended up being my favorites. Can't you just smell them?

The reason I like the deck arrangement is that the seating is so that when someone drives or walks by they can't see us sitting. Also, when you sit in any chair, except the wheelbarrow bench, you are looking into the back yard or perennial garden.
The above are two different views of the seating area. Of course I had to mess with Photoshop. Photoshop is very addicting.
My twig table, a find from last year and cheap cheap. The antique shop was going out of business. I thought I would never have one since they usually cost $100 or more. I paid $25. There's the tour Amie. Isn't this a lot better? Everyone else, come by and sit with me!
One of the few time the weather forecasters were correct. The above is our deck on Saturday morning. Notice the puddle on the deck cushion?
