Baby birds are gone

Sept. 5, 2013

Our Grandsons birthday.  26 years ago we sat in the St. Vincent Hosp. while Nancy labored to have this little boy.  Not so little now.  Always enjoy him when we do see him.

The baby birds hatched,  two of the.  One was big, and mother bird did not like my peeking in on them.  They hopped out of the nest soon and stayed in the bush for some time.  then they were gone.??

Have yet to cut down the bush.  Need to trim the shrubs at the side of the house also.  Was going to do that today, but instead I moved up the
RV ladder and scrubbed the roof.  and awning covers. Best way to do that with out falling off the roof is to lie down and lean over the edge. Got rather wet, Ernie said my behind was wet.  so I tried to spay him with the hose.  He would like to get up on the roof also, to check out the stuff up there, but the knees
are not the greatest this summer.  Got that done, and since I was wet all over anyway, ( I would wash myself off with the hose as my capri's were dirty wet.  Then I would clean some more.)  I came in and took a shower.  After lunch I washed the passenger side of the coach and than called it quits.  Those muscles that I do not use every day are telling me they ache!!!

We had the front end of the RV aligned a few weeks ago.  Drives better.

and we have tomatoes!!!! I even canned some juice this year.  Our grape arbor had just enough grapes to make 1 large and 1 small grape pie.  They
are in the freezer.   Have green and red peppers also.
The neighbors kept us supplied with corn and green beans.

Have you ever made peach pie by just putting fresh sliced peaches in a baked pie shell, use a glaze on the peaches and whipped cream on top of a slice.  Oh, it is good!!!  Fruit has been good and plentiful this year.

We miss having a big garden,  only for the veggies we get, but not the work a nice garden entails.    So we mooch off the neighbors.  and they do not mind.

It is getting late, wish you all a beautiful fall season.
