Steady Strawberries This Year…

Keep ’em Coming!

I’ve been surprised at my strawberry harvest(s) this year. I have several plants in the ground along the fence at the back end of our parking lot and every day I get at least one ripe berry – more often 3 or 4. I’m more than impressed with this since, over the last several years, there would be a spirt of about a week that I could pick my own strawberries to a total of not likely more than a dozen.

This plant survived last winter in this pot and is producing well – soon I shall feast! Again.

Farewell, Starship Dustbuster.

Posted by Les Becker on August 16, 2018 in Real Life |

Today, I said a sad goodbye to an old, old friend. my 26-year-old Chev Lumina APV Minivan took her last ride to the junkyard and I’m more than a little teary-eyed over it.


Going…


Going…


Yeah, I regret this already.

Be Jealous…

Posted by Les Becker on May 24, 2018 in Little Bits of Stupid, Wasted Time... |

If you have not yet grown up, and love to watch big machines dig holes in city streets, be jealous… I get this view for the whole summer, probably fall and likely into winter.

Queen of the Windowsill…

Posted by Les Becker on May 12, 2018 in Fur-Babies |

Between the construction across the street, the yelly people on the sidewalk, and the fact that the dog can’t fit on the windowsill, Luna has claimed her crown. She spends a LOT of time in the bay window.

I’m not sure what’s going to happen once I bring that patio table back down into the tarmac garden, but my original idea of building a window seat will only draw the dog to the window. The cat tolerates Kaylee about as well as Kaylee tolerates the cat.

This is the face of a cat that will pee in your shoes for the smallest “infraction”.

I’ll have to think of something to avoid any feline comeuppance.
