A joke for you
Hey readers...

I've been asked to supply a joke for today, so here goes...

A woman was driving across the desert. She was alone, watching the horizon...nothing in sight. But as she drove, she saw a speck in the distance. As she got closer, she realized it was a person. She stopped when she arrived where the person was. Nothing was in sight, not another car, not a house...nothing except this person. A Native American woman. The woman got into the car. They drove in silence for many miles.

On the seat between the driver and the passenger, there was a bottle of wine. The passenger asked what the bottle of wine was for.

The driver replied, "I got it for my husband".

The passenger replied, "GOOD TRADE".

That's the joke. I also think it's a good trade!

A reader sent me a copy of Pappy's jokes. I did have a good chuckle reading them. Thanks! I needed that!

My life has been so busy lately! With gardening here where I live, helping the residents with issues they can't figure out and cooking every Sunday. Plus, I've been helping a friend who's in hospital with what she needs. I have to buy what is requested, pack it up and ship it USPS. Time shopping where I normally wouldn't go with this pandemic...and I won't get vaccinated until I know what the long-term side effects of this untested vaccine does to people. Meanwhile, people are asked to show their vaccination card in some places...and for travel by air. Guess I won't be traveling by air! Not that I can afford to fly anywhere!

Some of the residents here get so much screwed up paper work...and they can't figure out what it means. I help them the best I can. For instance, my elderly neighbor got a bill from hospital for just under $800.00. Seems the hospital didn't update her insurance and charged her for blood work! I did make the call and get this straightened out. Then her toaster broke...and her fridge went down the crapper and her car broke down...all within one week. Poor woman! I did get her on the right path with all of this! She is exhausted but at least has a new toaster, fridge and her car is being repaired. Bill will be big, she needs a new battery and starter. Her car is a 2012...original battery and starter. She was going to put the charges for repair on her credit card but she has some savings. Suzie Ormond says if you have savings, use that to pay bills rather than have interest charged on a credit card. So, I have to watch her to be sure she doesn't pay all of the bill with her credit card. Oh, my!

Cooking on Sundays will come to a close on Memorial Day. I won't be captive in the hot kitchen during the summers! I want to be free of this chore when it gets hot for my kitchen doesn't have AC...and I have better things to do in the warmer months.

My garden grows nicely. I hope to get outside today (barring any unforeseen requests for help) and weed, cultivate and thin some of the new seedlings. Kale needs thinning, the swiss chard can be picked and lettuce cut. No rain forecasted for the next week, so watering will be necessary. The peas are doing nicely, hope they bloom soon! Can't wait for sugar snap peas!

Monday, I take my car for the tire change from winter to summer, an oil & filter change and inspection sticker. Last week, I pressure washed my summer tires & rims...just to clean them up. I checked the two older tires and they will pass inspection. This fall, I need to buy two new tires to replace the older ones. But I hope to get my AC fixed in my car so I can easily take BB out for park walks in the impending heat.

BB has turned 14 now and is doing well for his age. His teeth are almost all gone now...since the dog attack two years ago in the park. He got a clip job on Monday night and needs a bath today...if my plan for the day goes well. But I never know what's going to jump out of the box every day.

We are still in the drought up here in the north east. No rain in sight for now...and I will have to water the gardens. Oh, well...at least the spigot is on so I don't have to fill jugs in the apartment and haul them out. Just have to haul them from the spigot.

That's all for today. I hope to figure out how to keep the spam from my blog. Anyone out there with help on how to do that?

Enjoy every day! I do! Thanks for reading!
