The Rose Diaries

A rose bush came with our house when we bought it. We've never done anything with it. People say roses are hard, so we didn't bother. They always bloomed except for last year, when there was only one flower on it. I think that's because the previous hear someone had run over the bush with the lawn mower.

But this year, wow, it just bloomed all over the place. The branches and roses are heavy so the whole thing just sagged to the ground. I didn't think that was very attractive so I decided to get a trellis for it.

Have you priced trellises lately? A 4-foot 3-pronged single-sided metal one from Lowe's was over $10, and I wanted more than just a single-sided one. Thought about putting two or three together, but rejected that for price reasons.

Decided to make my own for a few bucks and a few wooden dowels and ta-da. Here it is.

I figure since I paid attention to it, the roses will most certainly die now. Oh well...

Always a comedy routine...

On Sunday, I planted a small azalea plant my sister gave me. Pretty, eh?

Even though it had been raining, the ground was pretty hard, so I dug out my dad's old pick axe, which of course, broke with my first swing.
The handle was completely rotted out. I'm afraid it's not the only tool in the shed that's like that. I'll have to buy new tools, which has it's advantages!

Fancy Nancy by Mike Huckabee

Here's a story about a lady named Nancy
A ruthless politician, but dressed very fancy
Very ambitious, she got herself elected Speaker
But as for keeping secrets, she proved quite a "leaker."

She flies on government planes coast to coast
And doesn't mind that our economy is toast
She makes the Air Force squire her in their military jets
There's room for her family, her staff, and even her pets.

Until now, she annoyed us, but her gaffes were mostly funny;
Even though it was painful to watch her waste our tax money.
But now her wacky comments are no laughing matter;
She's either unwilling to tell the truth, or she's mad as a hatter!

She sat in briefings and knew about enhanced interrogation;
But claims she wasn't there, and can't give an explanation.
She disparages the CIA and says they are a bunch of liars;
Even the press aren't buying it and they're stoking their fires.

I think Speaker Pelosi has done too much speaking;
And instead of her trashing our intelligence officials, it's her nose that needs tweaking.

If forced to believe whether the CIA and her colleagues in Congress are lying;
Or it's Speaker Pelosi whose credibility and career is dying.
I believe in the integrity of the men and women who sacrifice to keep us safe;
Not the woman who has been caught flat-footed, lying to our face.

I say it here and I say it rather clear-
It's time for Nancy Pelosi to resign and get the heck out of here.
