Congratulations; it's a tomato!

My family has a bad track record with fruit and vegetables; my father, the complete genius about roses and gladioli, once tried to grow a crop of strawberries. We got 11. (They were delicious.)

Is it because we're soft on varmints? Because we're inattentive? Both are true....Also, we have somehow purchased a house that gets full sun on all sides all day long. It's rather mysterious. We're thinking of charging admission. I did have a nice crop of basil-y things a few years ago, in containers on the deck; some dried out, but a lot was actually edible.

Both of the tomato plants are decorated with tiny green Christmas balls that may just grow up to be .....(quietly now, let's not freak them out.....) tomatos. That a person could eat.

We'll see.

This advice is entirely too vulgar to read. Please do not click the link. Nothing good will come of it.

don't you put me on the back burner

A little slice of my life:
When Father M said he wanted to use a music video in the service, of course I was excited. When he said it was a Killers song, even more so.

So this was the soundtrack of my day yesterday, mine and that of a web genius friend who came in to help me.

I love it. But then, I love Big Country.

Humor for churchy types

Q: What are the seven deadly sins?

A: The seven deadly sins are smoking, drinking, dancing, card-playing, movie-going, baptizing babies, and having any creed but Christ.

Enjoy the The Semi-Pelagian Narrower Catechism.
