There are far too many butts in the can. I think maybe hubby needs to curb that taste for those Cuban cigars, though I fear he may not like my nagging. He has decided that a good cigar is allowed at his age.
It's one of the pleasures he believes he has earned. It's very hard to argue with that!

 Two of our planters are full of srawberry plants and now they are ripening. While the yield is small the pleasure is enormous.

 Do you grow them too?

  Wish that a cure for the skin disorder was available. In the dust bin is some of the skin that Buddy sheds constantly every day. The amount is huge. Keeping him comfortable is very important but also challenging. 

These days he smiles at us and tells us he's making plans for his birthday dinner party. A new Harry Potter movie will be released on his BD and that's tops on his wish list. WOW!!

Seated in the middle is Gertrud, my paternal aunt, my favourite. She spent her entire life caring for others in an exemplary way. I hope that some of her goodness will be carried forward by my own children whom she loved dearly like a grandma. Her birthday was June 9th.1924.
