Weeds be gone...


I have gotten a lot of the weeds cut down, but the batteries on the weed eater only last about 30 minutes with this tall grass.   I should have most of the grass gone by Monday.


I bought a pink rose to plant on Mary Chauncy's grave.  I dug up flowers and planted on some of the graves.  I figure if I am going down there to cut weeds every week or so, I can haul water from the pond that is only a hundred yards or so away and water the plants if they need it.


I dug up two rose of sharons and transplanted them.


This is Patsy's pink rose by the 1853 marked stone.


Robert lost another tooth.  He and Hannah are staying all night at the neighbor's, but he ordered his Dad to put he tooth under his pillow up  here tonight.  Greg told him maybe the tooth faerie would come tomorrow night, but Robert was having none of that.  Tooth Faerie has to be here tonight even if Robert is not. 

Uncle George giving rides.  All the kids get a turn.  

The new goat is a billy. That makes 4 billies.   I think we are going to have BBQ goat for the holiday.

Plant peonies they say they last 100 years...I am so glad you planted one by Little Debbie...It is just the BEST smell in the world...even better than home made bread!

Betty Jean...you are just too soft...of all of the things I have thought about that grave yard...and I have thought about peopel carving those stones and making the wooden boxes...I thought about sorrow but never thought about them crying.

Erin, Uncle George is Jr. I just read a book--if it's not one thing it's your mother. The little girl thought the tooth fairy was a thief. Take her tooth and leave a quarter or even a dollar...while I sleep will she steal more of my teeth.
