      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Sorry about your swing and hope you are not too banged up.

Let's don't even start about mowers.  We have "his and hers" riding mowers.   The transmission went out of one in the fall, a blade spindle went out of the other last week.  Hubby hates robbing parts off one to keep the other running, but he changed out decks this time because he needed to mow.  Think snakes!

Parts have been ordered and we'll see if we get the other mower running this season or not.

I'm Mary, Mary quite contraire lately .. the weather has been more like Autumn and is forecast to remain that way for the rest of the week- Without warmth, stuff just doesn't want to grow .. -- the mower quit, the swing broke when I was sitting in it .. before I knew it I was laying on my back looking up at the sky .. like an astronaut-ess .. meh ...pitybanner.jpg

Sorry to hear all this ^^^^. :( But glad you weren't hurt.  :)

My summer squash have really started to bloom as have my cantaloupe.  I had a not so friendly visit in the garden one night and about half of my watermelon plants disappeared...nipped off at the ground.  I'm pretty sure it is a ground squirrel.  They are cute little buggers to watch skurry around, but the chicken wire can't keep them out of the garden.

Hahaha .. I just said it was hot and dry .. Its raining ..  Sorry about the watermelon- Due to it having been hot and dry the ants were foraging and carrying off seeds big time so will be lucky if they left any behind, they're efficient .. chipmunks are back at again as usual .. My cosmos for whatever reason grew to 6 inches and quit, the blooms are teenie and irregular .. always something!

I use a systemic fertilizer for my flowers that a big name company puts out for roses especially.  It contains a insecticide that takes care of the bugs.

I'm my way out to the garden to seet my snap traps to try to catch that pesky rodent now.

peppers are lagging behind, what I thought was gourd or pumpkin wound up being zucchini -- volunteers from last year .. the tomato, thus far, look better than ever!
