Monday, November 5, 2018 – Early voting for the mid-term elections is over. In our first voting as new (again) Louisiana voters we went to the Tangipahoa Parish Courthouse and voted at the Registrar of Voters office last Monday. Seems that gone are the days of stepping inside the big voting pole and having the curtain closed behind you. Now there is a fairly open to everyone small electronic voting booth. Every one of these small booths was occupied which confirms what I’ve heard of high percentages of people choosing to vote early rather than waiting for voting day.
America has been becoming Great again since the day President Donald J. Trump was elected. It is over the top important that every one gets out to vote on November 6th and more important that just voting is to
I do not like all the tacky, untasteful, etc. words that sometimes come out of our President’s mouth. I do LOVE all the progress our country has made under his Presidency. He is, regardless of the fake news, Making America Great Again. I firmly believe we need more REPUBLICANS in the Senate and House so that the President’s agenda can continue to move forward. Please get out on voting day, November 6th and vote intelligently, vote REPUBLICAN.
After we met with Elisa from People’s Health, Roy and Chip went on a guy’s road trip. When our sons were young they collected baseball cards and have a huge collection. Chip remembers when he’d go to work with his dad, Roy, they would buy a box of baseball cards and open all the packs. He loved that. Someone posted on Facebook that they had a wrapped box of 1990 Upper Deck baseball cards (the good ones) for sale in Pearl River. They drove there, bought the cards and came home to open them! It was fun for even me watching them open the packs and reminisce about pro ball players we’ve followed in years past.
Our vegetable garden is doing well. The cucumbers, okra, tomatoes, lettuce, green onions, turnips and radishes are doing great. We pick lettuce every day and have harvested the radishes and planted more lettuce and radishes in their place. The lettuce is reproducing itself each time we pull some leaves! The carrots, brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower are doing well but I don’t know if they will produce before it gets too cold. We’ll see! All of the lessons we are learning with this crop will help us with the spring garden.
The cucumbers in the photo below are just a tiny portion of the crop we have growing! There must be 100 cucumbers on the vines! I’m going to learn how to pickle cucumbers and would love anyone’s tried and true pickling recipe and instructions for how to do it!
The little watermelons, cantaloupe and peanut garden that is located down the hill near the pond are another learning experience. When the time is right next year we’ll do this again in the same place. Here’s how the watermelons are doing right now. I think they are adorable, just too little to eat yet!
I love the view out of our living room windows. When the cows are in the picture it is even better! We have squirrels scampering around now and I love it! The sun setting view is exceptional! The colors in the picture are just a smidgen of the beautiful colors we actually see.
I am still loving my rock painting and took pictures when I finally got it straightened up and back to being organized!
My view of the back yard, pond and garden out the rock painting room window is very special!
We had bad weather come through a couple of days ago and we woke up to the garden being in bad shape. Everything is now standing back up and I am hopefully the emergency care will help the plants do well again.
We delivered Dora yesterday evening to LSU’s campus for a weekend of tailgating. It is such an amazing campus, we really enjoyed this delivery to a really great lady and her family!
That’s the goings on in Chauvin world last week! Ya’ll come back now ya hear!
