    Daily Check In Tuesday 5-4-10 With Pond Picture

    Good morning, everyone.

    Partly sunny here in WNY this morning. In the 50's now heading for the 60's. I picked my tower PC up from the shop yesterday with a brand new hard drive, and now I can not get the network adapter to work. So, I can't get that machine on the internet and am using this older laptop still. Looks like a trip to BestBuy this morning.

    Have a blessed, low-pain and terrific Tuesday, folks. :)

    B asked me to post a picture of our ponds. So, here it is:

    Hi Dave, looks like you own a little slice of heaven there! That is gorgeous! You and you're wife have quite the green thumb. I bet it's nice to just sit out there and enjoy, and even work on.

    Thanks for sharing, I was curious, B

    PS Have a great day!

    I am so happy to see that you were able to get a picture of the pond posted. It is so peaceful and serene. I am sure you and your wife have some relaxing times just sitting watching the nature.

    We do refer to our back yard as our sanctuary. The best time is early on a summer morning. Quite peaceful. Til I look at all the weeds and fret how I'm going to get them out. I'll figure that out soon and keep it looking good. :)
    davedsel57 replied to Charl1942's response:
    Yes, we enjoy our sanctuary very much and all of God's creatures that visit. Except the yellow-jackets. Do not like those at all. :)
    BrenBren30813 replied to davedsel57's response:
    Hey Dave, I've been thinking about that "weed" predicament and what comes to mind is those lovely boys of yours! Do they still live at home with ya?

    They probably won't like to hear that suggestion came from a stranger and may discourage you from any future interactions with us "pain members"...but, you know, whatever it takes to help you out :)

    Eldest son will mow the lawn if asked. Youngest wants nothing to do with yard work. I'll get the weeds soon. Gotta plan to pull out the herbicidal spray (Round-Up) and use it carefully on a calm (no wind) day, mostly in the cracks between patio blocks and places like that. Then I'll try using my electric grass trimmer and see how I do. It still looks good, its just a bit too weedy right now.
