Lunch with FRIENDS

Had a nice lunch with friends at
OLD SALTY's
on Hoopers Island.

GREAT chat afterwards.

What did we order?
STEAK!

They are FAMOUS for SEAFOOD
but I LOVE their STEAK!

Hey, Jay
what is that seasoning??

HOW DID THEY FIND IT

 I cleaned my kitchen in and out.
Took all the dishes out of the cabinets,
ran all the dishes through the dishwashers,
and...I STILL HAD ANTS!!
Whats going on?
Ah Ha! I think I FINALLY found the culprit...
an OLD, STICKY
"Starlite Mint"
wrapped up in a bottom of a Xmas mug
that I got as a gift.

HOW DID THEY FIND IT?
Anyway, all afternoon
I haven"t seen any.

FINGERS R CROSSED


HELP!

I keep hearing this song
in my KITCHEN!

Watermelon Diary #3

How embarrassing is this??

One of Bonnie's friends said comparison wasn't good enough.

She wants to know and measure my GIRTH on a daily basis.

I wish I wasn't a watermelon and could make her do it along with me.

Today I am 11 inches!

I hate you CHERYL.

PROOF

Proof that Bill did not marry me because I can clean house.

Yes, that is COMET spilled on the rug and yes it is in nature as I clean up one mess I create another. So, why do I bother??

Snow Cone Time

Grass all cut!!
Vanilla snow cone
My favorite

Watermelon Diary #2

Bonnie says I am bigger today but how can she prove it??

Well, she us not as DUMB as she looks somedays. She placed a PEPSI can next to me so we have something to compare me against.

Like Bonnie, I feel like I might be bottom heavy.

TTYL

Commission

I finished a commission piece today. Got up early and banged it out.

They saw my art at the outdoor show, took my card then emailed me a picture of the house they wanted done.

Diary of a Watermelon #1

They found me on a Sunday.
I was trying so hard not be noticed.
The goats kept sniffing around but
never seemed interested.

I thought I would out smart them
by growing up the fence
and then just sit on top
of the railing
hiding under a big leaf.

BUT NO!
Bill found me!

Later in the day
Bill built me a shelf
so as I get bigger
I won't have to balance
by ROUNDNESS on that
small narrow rail.

WHAT A GUY!

So, now
here I am on the INTERNET
so everyone can watch me grow
I heard them say they will take
pictures and hope
I GROW BIG and FAT!

Are YOU watching ME??

My Baby Watermelon

A watermelon is growing in the goat pen. It is a seed leftover from last year's goat food.

So far it is the only melon to sprout. I am going to watch it everyday until we pick it and eat it.

Or until the goats notice it and they eat it.

Whatever comes first.

Today, Sunday, it is about the size of a tennis ball.

Where Have I Been??

Some of you gave asked WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??

Gail and Ken came down for a few days and that means SHOPPING!!

While Gail and I were shopping, Ken was relaxing and watching GOLF until Bill came home, then they went CRABBING.

THEY JUST LEFT heading back across the BRIDGE.
