Make Each Day Count
IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER:
I would have invited friends over to dinner
even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the "GOOD"
living room and worried much less about the dirt
when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to
my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would never have insisted the car windows be
rolled up on a summer day because my hair
had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted
like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have sat on the lawn with my children
and not worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while
watching television and more while watching life.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead
of pretending the earth would go into a holding
pattern if I weren't there for the day.
I would never have bought anything just
because it was practical, wouldn't show soil
or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never
have said, Later. Now go get washed up for dinner."
There would have been more "I love yous"
and more "I'm sorry's"; .....but mostly,
given another shot at life,
I would seize every minute.....
look at it and really see it ...
live it ... and never give it back.

Picture of my garden BEFORE it grew up
AFTER it grew
This is a view of one side of my front yard .Is not a great shot because its not a digital camera .In the back ground is a neighbors old broke down campers.On the left is a big green pot of Lilies .Behind the lilies is a small unnamed tree behind it is a heavy follage plant, big heart shaped leaves that looks like a tree .Its a huge Sunflower about 9 foot tall .When I get the film developed I will post it in full bloom .Biggest plant I've ever seen , (at least thats not a tree.) To the right of it is my eggplants .I have so many fruit from them I am giving them away (The dark spots on them are fruit) .This is the little garden that has grown up.Behind the eggplants is a trellis covered with cucumbers My Zinnias are in the tires.The silver pot holds my Black Pearl Pepper.On the right past the tires is my Althea bush.
In the white pot is a Ginger Root that is now coming up.
A little different view .On the right is part of my arch that has my Mandavilla's and the also the tall funny shape plant is a Mullin Plant .It was dug up and potted its starting to bloom this morning .In one tire is wild Cone Sombreo plants and next to it is Glads in a tire.
This is one of my Plumeria Plants .I have 3 .They haven't bloomed not sure if they bloom the first year or not .Does anyone by chance know it they do?

Richie is out of surgery after 4 hours and the piece of steel is still in the bone.The piece is
in the canal where all the nerves pass through if they do much it could paralize his face .He has lost a lot of blood and they are letting him go home they repaired the artery that was cut and has it stopped bleeding .He had surgery in the E.R. but the surgeon said if they have to go back in he will not localize it again .He will be put under .Keep those prayers going as he really needs them.
