Love the pic Kari!

Mmmmm beefsteak tomato sandwiches! Throw a slice of cheese on that too Chris!
Dad used to eat those any time of the day or night.

But seeing as my stomach is just not right today, (I think it's the heat)   , I'll pass.

But, it did make me remember those giant green tomato worms!!!  YUCK!  Remember those??  Giant suckers!  Big around as your finger!! And, as long too. They blend right in with the leaves and stalk so you have to look closely.  They move real slow eating away...

Sorry...my stomach isn't just right..

Think I'll curl up on the bench here in the garden with a good book.

Hugs and love to all!

I do love fresh tomatoes right off the vine...any size or shape...tomatoe sandwiches are the best, especially with a fresh cucumber on it and a piece of onion. Ever had one of those sandwiches?

and, those fried green tomatoes are Heaven!!! You've never ate them Duncan? Where you from? Green fried tomatoes have a lot of stories!! HeeHee!!

Hey Ya'll!!
See ya'll later. I'm going to read some more....

EEEEEEEWWWWWW !! Yes, I do remember those ugly tomato worms now that you brought them up ... ummm....sorry, I meant to say, now that you mention it. I don't recall so much them crawling slowly along, but rather what they looked like after Dad threw them in the firepit. Like...like....burnt cheese twists!! EEEEEEWWWWWW !! Holy Cheetos Batman!! That just made my own stomach flip.
   We did have a firepit didn't we? Cause if we didn't .... the only other place Dad could have thrown them was .... on the barbque!!! EEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW !!!!

Chris & Nancy Lee -- Ickkkkk worms......I remember those great big ugly things....eewwwww, I agree.  Although they might taste delicious fried if you didn't know what you were eating....I mean, after all, just think of what they were eating and they'd probably taste like that, right???!!  Now, I think this has turned into something that my son would enjoy reading.....icky worms, yep, he'd like that.  But just so he won't be tempted, I gonna back to the subject of tomatoes.  

Ethel -- howdy lady -- yep, I love those sandwiches.  And my mother (who lived for a little while in the South when she was growing up) told me noboby didn't love green tomatos.  She'd fix them southern style and hmmmm hmmmm hmmmmm they were good.  I'm reallly getting a craving for them now!

Hmmmm....ugly thing in that pic Nancy Lee.
But, how do we know for sure what they look like in the comfort of their own homes. How their loved ones see them. Possibly like this?
Ya, makes one stop and think doesn't it?!! Makes you maybe feel a little sad even.
Makes you sorry for the time you made me pick up that dead toad at the end of our driveway. Remember?!!! Hmmmm? Ya... right....then told me to take it into Mom who was fixing dinner. Is it all coming back to you now dear sister? The toad...looking like a dirty, dusty, frizbee or potholder. Me, small and innocent holding it up to Mom and saying "Look what I found Mommy!"
  I still remember her squeals. Something about "Germs" and something else said in French. I remember you laughing until your sides ached. You're laughing now too aren't ya?!! LOL.

I sure am Chris..and my sides are aching.  You used to do almost anything I asked of you.

If you want to think those worms look like the one you have up there..that's okay.

But it was DAD who broke mom's favourite vase when he was trying to teach us to twirl the baton.

Did he ever show you how to eat fire?
He did me...ever wonder where my eyebrows really went?

How about how to stick your hand in the bear trap?
Oops..save that for another story.

LMAO @ Nancy.  

Thanks for the bug info.  So far, no worms.  A few cabbage moths, but they only seem to like the brussel sprout leaves.  

I'm makin' up a bunch of tomato sandwiches in a bit, so ya'll feel free to drop by and have a few...

I just had to come back, someone alerted me of a certain poet's return. For those of you who weren't around when Alicia was writing on PIP I suggest you look at her new words in Open and search her out in the archives. I don't usually gush over poets, (and pray she never comes in here or sees this) but there are certain poets on this site who are genius.

That's not to belittle any of the writers on the site at all, but read her work and you'll see why I haven't been able to post in months. Because I want to write like that but at this point couldn't write like Mike Tyson. Ok I'm done raving and the painkillers are wearing off so I'll see you all. By the way karen could you persuade Bri and Wranx to up and post a few more.

Take care


BTW Nancy and Chris you guys crack me up lol

Raph?

You are so cute...and this is even cuter.

Alicia is another friend of mine, and I don't know how to tell you this..but uh, she wrote me a few weeks ago and told me she reads in here pretty regularly.

(cutie! laughing)

Don't you dare edit either...I know she'd be flattered to read your praise.

And as for my other buddies, I've been trying to play reverse psychology and act like I don't miss their poetry and it's not working.

Not yet.

But we'll see...

and Chris & Nancy? I swear you two have it all over me. I used to think that MY life had been scripted by John Irving, but you two take the cake!

and now I'm waving frantically at Mysteria.

I'm fine. I just have that recurring bout of "flu" that we both knew I'd have to go through--AGAIN. Congratulate me, folks, and crown me "Miss 0 Refills"! (until my next surgery? sigh but *wink*)

Sheesh.

I love you all bunches.!

I'll be around...and around...and around...

Serenity, cough, cough, sniffle, sniffle....me, too, it's all up in my sinuses...probably caught this galldern cold when I went to consult with a new doc two weeks ago (no nothing's wrong that I know of yet, just need to know if my kidneys are messed up b/c of all the meds I'm on so needed a doc to follow up with blood work).  Wishing you well....I think I'm going to drink a bottle of nyquil and go to bed here in a minute.  So you know this Alicia....I'm going to go check her out now.     ...jo

I have been reading..just nothing much to say especially nothing cheerful or memory found...

So I got through a week without anything to bring me too far down, even my cat Sugar, came up the steps the evening before to sleep next to me, making me think we have beaten whatever it is that made her scream last week...and she has been eating.

Funny thing though, the last few days she has been crawling into her carrier that I have let here just in case I need it again and sleeping in it, coming out only for food.

Well the screaming has begun again and even touching her is making her do so when I pet her, trying to make her feel better and the only way I was able to bring her down from my bedroom again was in the carrier...

And I have two choices now... one is to spend about $500 more on tests for the vet to tell me there is nothing they can do for her...or the other which I dread but probably will have to do.

I wonder sometimes why I have this clouded life and how to get beyond it.


Karen, I hope you are feeling better soon.  
And to the rest of the gardener's,  your stories are delightful and I must have led a pretty boring childhood and teenage years although I hadn't thought so until readng here.

For those who dont know--before she posted as Alicia...she used the pen name "Spitfire" ... the archives has many examples of her brilliance.

Morning groovy guys and gals.

Toe, in this little garden, a lot of goodness grows...but I see we've got worms, too, so truly, all subjects fit.  Tell us a story, Toe...c'mon, tell us a tale too true to be believed, if it comes from none other than you...

Crew? C'mon...nudge Toe...

Yanno, I am sitting here listening to Joni Mitchell's "Hejira"...why you ask?  Because I am trying to quench my undying thirst for the CD I won on Ebay that isn't here yet!!

I was also thinking about everyone's stories of famous people and I remembered (do not laugh too loud!) that I once did a workout with Richard Simmons....

*sigh*

thank god that show "This is your life" isn't on anymore.....
