I Did A Bad Thing

The Bennie was getting his ingredients ready to make his Basil Pesto with clams.
As usual I was not thinking much about what he was doing in the kitchen (I just do the KP). He went out to pull
the basil, came back in mad as an old wet hen. Patsy Carolyn!!!! he always uses my middle name when he is mad. WHY did you pull up my basil when you cleaned the dead plants out of the garden???? Well I am sorry but I ask him when I was in the garden if he wanted to pull and dry his basil and he said no. How is that for bad communication.
We did have the Pesto but not with fresh basil. He is so sweet and didn't stay mad long.

and then Paul Newman,
finally being accepted by  Clint Eastwood.

A First For Me

I was working in my garden pulling out the spent Vinca's getting ready to put in the Pansy
that winter over for a big spring show. When this came marching across the side walk. I looked and said What is that?
The Bennie said it is a big Red Velvet Ant, well it was a Female Red Velvet Wasp.
This with out the black is the ant. They have a painful sting and feed on nectar in the garden.
So watch out and don't get sting working in the flowers.

Light and Darkness

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness,who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.  Woe  to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.

Did you know that "The United States government keeps its supply of SILVER at the US Military Academy at West Point NY?
And a lump of pure GOLD the size of a match box can be flattened into a sheet the size of a tennis court.
