Well, another new Granny here! We just learned this week that our daughter is pregnant, and her baby is due in July! First Grandchild.

OK Ray there are so many responses to that, but for a change I am going to keep my mouth shut!
Grandmommy by 2X.
Earl my granddaughter is 2 and one of her first words were tomato. She likes helping me water and pick them. YEA! cheap labor. Does that count against child labor laws?

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! That is a precious photo Ray Touched my heart.
All I can say about todays world is that no matter what, I have my family and the tomatoes. When things feel tough, I can be surrounded by the people I love or I go out to the chair I set in the middle of my tomato forest, and am surrounded by my tomato children.
Kat, I bet if more people grew tomatoes there would be less need for psych wards.

Tomatoaddict I agree with that comment. Most are concerned with getting their social security checks. There are some who really can not work (I do feel bad for them). Then you have an 18 y/o boy come in asking how to get signed up for social security it just drives me bonkers. Even though I am not allowed to say it, I am thinking that if you had to work for a living 10-16 hour days then you would not find time to threaten people with suicide, cutting yourself, or just out and doing drugs ruining your mind. You just don't have time to think about it, and if you still have time, then get some hobbies (like growing tomatoes). Once again I am not talking about the truly suicidal people here. Just the ones that are doing it in an attention seeking manner. This is our tax dollar at work Earl. But then again, who else but a person working in psych can legally tie people to a bed in a bodynet and shoot them up? Pluses and minuses in every job . Just a word of advise to all tomatovillians. Cannibis and formaldehyde? There is a reason it is called Fry! Alot of my patients lately have come from this combo. Hopefully the most we sniff here is cow or horse manure.

Long time no see everyone! Thought I'd stop by and say HELLO! I am expecting my 6th baby on Valentine's Day. Life is Good, or as good as you make it!

Hope, indeed, springs eternal. That always reminds me of the poem....

Hope springs eternal in the human breast;
Man never Is, but always To be blest:
The soul, uneasy and confin'd from home,
Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

-Alexander Pope,
An Essay on Man, Epistle I, 1733

My Fil tells the stories of when Oh was on the ration stamps ? during the war. MIL would trade her food stamps for the shoe stamps. Are they called stamps ?
FIL and his mom sold plants in there Green house in OH they were famous for there peonies. Some are still growing on church rd in New Carlisle .
Simplicity is a concept not many think of .

Funny its not as easy as it looks ?
