Are you calling us jokes???  Hmph!  I've been called worse.  ;-)

As George indicated this list has only been running a few days so
you haven't missed much.  Margaret and I haven't even been grumpy
yet. :-) Good to see you, Cheryl.  It's been a long time.

So, tell us about your garden.  Mine just got weeded (not that it 
needed it -- you could still see some of the plants I intended to be 
there) and I'm going to move a whole lot of stuff around.  There was 
a beeeeeg sale at my favorite local nursery last weekend but I was 
good and didn't spend too much.  I picked up a velvety looking deep 
red perennial lobelia that may be my new favorite plant.

Yall don't hit me or anything but they had Japanese maples on half 
price sale and I didn't buy one.  Stupid me, I couldn't figure out 
where to put it.  I see lots of JM around and the very lacy red ones 
appear to get sunburn if they get full afternoon sun here.  Well 
today (1 week after the sale) I almost wrecked the truck when I 
realized that I had a perfect place to plant one -- on the east side 
of the northeast corner of the house.  They sold only 1 of the danged 
things last weekend and today they wanted $90 for the variety I want. 
I think they can keep it until it goes on sale again.
