Are you in the mood for a hilarious story? Is that a "yes" I heard? My mom was one of those mom's who insisted on putting the little silver strands of icicles on the tree ONE at a time!!! It paid off I guess because the trees always ended up looking like they came out of a magazine. SO this one year, when my brother and I were teenagers and the last kids still at home, Mom gave us the usual instructions of, "Now be sure to put the strands on one at a time." She then left the room to attend to some other business. About a minute after she left, my brother and I looked at each other with THAT LOOK on our faces, and simultaneously threw our entire wad right into the tree and commenced to fall apart laughing. I think we both just had to know how it would feel to throw caution to the wind and do the unthinkable. What a dork I was. Not you Steve... you were never a dork. : )
Hey...were we HIP or what? That was a rhetorical question!!
As soon as I arrived today, my mom took me right to her back porch to see the progress her geraniums are making. She is very proud of them. Thanks June and Ron for getting these started for her.
