Hey pals- It is HOT, in the 90's...Not as Hot as alot
of places.Those of you that don't like HOT,dip in a tubbie
or a wading pool....Garden is doing well. We have to
water every 2nd. night with this HEAT. Due to long days
here,we can't start until 7 or 8 p.m. at night. Isn't
dark until after 10. Take a couple hours to water....
Garden has only been in 1 month. Tomatoes are setting.
There is 1 cauliflower starting already.(Surprised us!)
Corn loves heat and potatoes are almost ready to bloom.
Gma had salad made with her 5 kinds of leaf lettuces
and baby swiss chard with white icicle and red radishes.
She added other veggies that she still had on hand
to make what she calls a garbage salad.(1st.produce)
She was Happy! I'm still looking for the potatoes,
she said are in the garden! I didn't find 1 yet!
She said, ALL 40 Hills did come up...were a few
3 weeks without a WORKING refrigerator in our kitchen.....
Gma has called all repair places in a 60 mile radius!
Guess what??????NO ONE WILL DRIVE TO THE COUNTRY FOR
A SERVICE CALL...Everyone needs more guys than they
have. No one to hire for extra help!
The oil boom in North Dakota has caused a rapid busy
growth in Bismarck-Mandan. SSSSSSoooo, NO Service
to the country! One place will diagnose the issues
for a flat $35. Then tell us, if it is worth fixing.
We will take it there in the fall. Since it is 8 yrs.
old. The fridges downstairs are 30 plus years old....
Gma is a Crabby Abby from loading 2 coolers everyday.
Running the basement stairs to the fridges for foods.
Around trying to keep the garden watered and weeded
in the heat. As well as keep our house clean,our
laundry done and everyone fed...Still have a dirty CAR!
To make matters worse: Gma has messed up her neck,
shoulders and hip areas. Plus muscular garbage
going on...She had 2 massages and 2 chiropractor
appointments this past week. Doesn't think those
did much good. She's sure the stress of the
fridge and weather are NOT HELPING HER! Medical
peeps think she has a magnesium deficiency.This
is causing her leg cramps and spasms. She eats
all the foods that are high in magnesium. (So
verdict is out on the mag. powder she has to
drink for awhile).
Found out Sears is having a July 4th. Sale. She
drove herself crazy and gave herself headache
by looking and looking at possible purchases.
Now she has an idea of what is within her
price range. Then you will have the taxes
and an extended warranty agreement for future
service. She's hoping to replace her Lemon stove
at same time. It has been a terror since
day 1 and is also 8 yrs. old....
Tomorrow evening they are going shopping...
Since the list is pretty long....The feral cats
are almost out of supplies. Gma cooked meat
for Gpa to mix with their kibbles tonight.
(Better NOT be out of my supply of meatZ!)
She said, she had some extra milk in the house
for the little kitties that are just learning
to drink water. She worries that they will
no stay hydrated. Their Momma is still nursing
them. She looks very thin...is giving
everything to her 1st. batch of kitties.
Good thing, she only had 3 babies....
Saturday we spent 3 hours watering our flowers.
Since there is shade around our house, we
could do it in the afternoon. Thunderboomers
came through last night. Only .20 here but .75 just
up the road a couple miles. A few miles east of us,
torrential with hail! Gma says, she'll have a melt-down
if the garden is hailed on!!!!!
I guess,Gma better feed me...so I have strength to
supervise the watering. I WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY 4TH. OF
JULY....IT'S A WORKDAY HERE,UNLESS IT RAINS...I'd
rather have rain on Friday, when I turn a Big 5...
Does this mean, I can go to school with McKenzie and
Hugs and Kisses, Mazy

Happy 4th of July to you and your family Mazy. Sending hugs for your Gma to feel better.
Paws crossed your gramma feels better soon, Mazy. Hopefully she can find a new fridge and stove at the Sears sale. Hugs.
Your poor Gma! I hope your Gma's ouchies feel better soon. Maybe Gma needs a couple of rest days to get her body back in order. Good luck on the shopping trip.
Hugs and kisses,
Mazy momma takes magnesium for aching legs all the time in a form of a tablet.Good luck with your refredg problems we know what it like to have one go on the blink!
