Gifts, Yard work and Friends

 Cullman,  AL

Here we are in the first week of May.  Weather is still rather cool.  That's alright.  We know the heat is on the way.

This morning we said Happy Traveling to our 38th Boondockers Welcome guests.  This is the first time since December we have no reservations scheduled.     Maybe the Spring rush is over.  We had a lull during December also.   We are thinking in both December and again this time of the year people are where they want to be.   

I want to share two things that recent guests presented to us.   One couple live in a famous town in Pennsylvania and gave us this wine.   I didn't know that Groundhog beside predicting the weather also has a winery.

Guests we hosted last week are on their way to Paradise, CA to work with Habitat for Humanity building houses that were destroyed by the wild fires.   Their daughter is traveling across country with them on this trip.   She lives in NYC and is a freelance cartoonist (think Marvel comics).

We ask our guests to sign our guest book.  This was their entry.  We LOVE it.

There is always work do to in our yard, especially in the Spring.   As we had a cool night a couple of weeks ago and we did not cover our raised bed, we lost our tomato and peppers plants to frost.   We have since put in replacements.   Leonard thought it would be a good idea to rig up a sprinkler system.  That is all well and good but he gives me heart palpations doing so.

While he was at it, we had a Mimosa tree that died and needed removal.   He did that again with the help of his beloved Mahindra.

I like the looks of flower beds but I don't have a green thumb.  Perennials are my friend.

This leads to my inside project.   Finally I am getting around to making a family picture wall.  I want a few more hung but need to get more frames and also have requested recent pictures of each of our children and their spouse.

Several years ago when we were still fulltime RVing we met a couple while in Texas.  We have stayed in contact and get together whenever our paths cross.    Carol and Jerry have a Tifflin motorhome and come to Red Bay, AL once a year for servicing.    This past week we met about half way between at a Mexican Restaurant.    And what better day to have Mexican food than Cinco de Mayo.  Here we are.

That's our latest.  

Until next time.


  1. Great idea with the sprinklers on the raised bed. George's tomato plants are doing great here.

  2. Using the same framework that Len used for the sprinklers install a roll up cover that you can use against the Frost.
    Glad you are enjoying your Boondocking Guests.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. Lets face it Phyllis, you just can't keep a good man down. Job well done and your flower beds looks lovely.
