I wanted to open a furrow & plant taters , but too wet so I did some fence repairs in the dog yard.

my tiller covers tire tracks but if the tracks were outside the tilled area leaving me a  tilled bed, that would still work for me, I would just call it a row & go on.

This was not a day for old folks, like me, to be running a marathon so we just let the younger ones do it. This is Jewel's G-Niece running and finishing the 15K chocolate run in Dallas today. We're proud of her, if this girl isn't running she's talking about it.

I have a cultivator that  should work very well between the rows. This is a tool I bought & then wondered why after I used it.

Boudin, my tiller is 5' I'm going to use the beds it has made which is six. This is my first year to do gardening like this. I could have more rows but this way I can keep a cleaner garden with less work. Thank you for your interest I wish I could remember how many rows I used to plant when my garden was larger.

                    set out some more onions---my garden this year is 30' wide x 45 long. I set out one bundle each of Texas sweet and candy red. each bundle made a row.

I also have been checking in several times a day. I have been having knee problems, blood work showed something elevated so fluid was pulled from the knee for lab. I have an appointment tomorrow to see what's going on, more arthritis I suspect.

thank you rabbit and judy, we are 17 and 18 with the future ahead. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to meet so many beautiful nice folks on The Bayou Gardener. I tilled up a small garden and will try to stay active.

Yesterday Jewel & I quietly celebrated our 64th wedding anniversary. We looked at a few pictures of our life together and was able to smile at the memories. Our time together seems so short even if we have known each other from age 13. Jewel asked ,"what if we had never met"? I told her we wouldn't have all these pictures. We stayed in memory lane awhile longer then Jewel said, "we were meant to be together" Here we are Feb 2--1955

My plan was to till one swath through the middle of the garden for rapid downsizing , but something just took over that tractor &  it wouldn't stop tilling.

judy I bought a set of tires yesterday from a fellow who was one of the rare finds today. Jewel & I had been to every place that sold tires in Terrell & no one caught my error asking for the wrong tire size. The first place I was hollered at the minute I drove up , I told him I wanted a set of tires & read the size from my paper, don't carry that size then he continued his conversation with another man. One place did ask about the car, looked it up on the computer then told me they didn't carry that size. The fellow who sold me the tires asked the size, asked if I was getting them for the Mercury he saw me drive up in after telling him I was he said let's go check that tire size your car should take a 16" tire. I had the size mostly correct but had 15 instead of 16. He got my business and my recommendation to Sis and Jimmy.

When I was a 5 & 10 asst. mgr. there was a policy for the candy dept. stop short on the scales then add , never take any candy or nuts off the scales if you're over sack it & hand to the customer.

During most the 70s I was service mgr. for a leading appliance dealer--distributor in Dallas. I knew what it was costing to keep a service company going and knew service from companies like Sears and the one I was with would be phased out. The opportunity for independents would be wide open. I got a reminder from Jewel that my own business was always on my mind. We got in on the independent ground floor with better service at lower rates. We had contracts with all the major appliance lines to do their warranty work. We had two very good experienced service techs. come to us after their dealer got out of service. My best memories of Sears Roebuck though came from that catalog.

Ben thank you for talking with Jewel, she used to write down who called but she forgets now. My cell number is at every phone so she can call me at any time , sometimes I'm just upstairs. I must have been outside when you called back. I used to kid Jewel about talking loud and tell her I'm not sitting at the back of the class room. Hope you get back on your eating routine & get better soon. I had your phone number in a spiral note book and can't find the book. I'll keep looking but till then wishing you and your Misses a Happy New Year.-----Monroe
