Last month Tammy and Brendan made a quick visit to our home, and I was sure glad they did. It was good to have such a muscular and handsome young man volunteer to do the spring garden tilling.
Of course, Tammy was more than anxious to "go to work," so I turned her loose on the flower bed behind the garage. She got that all weeded then planted a row of sedum that she brought from Washington. Not knowing what sedum looks like at maturity, I Googled them, and guess what? There are hundreds of varieties; so I will just have to accept what I get - right?
The theme of "Work hard and play even harder" is something this family seems to have successfully harvested over the years. Working is our inheritance. After all, we are all the offspring of working class ancestors; however it is obvious that all of our grand kids have more stuff now than we ever had as kids.

Now that Grandma & I are getting a little older, we tend to supervise more that we use to, but that is alright, 'cause we have never heard any of our offspring complain about doing a chore.

Okay, one last item! This unusual tent caught our attention. It went up quickly on the west parking lot of the South towne mall. It houses as horse show called 'Cavalia.'
The tent is huge, and since this pic was taken, many smaller tents have gone up around the perimeter. Equestrians are plentiful around here, so I'm sure this show will be successful.
