we were in the 20s with 40 mile an hour wind gusts - right now it is in the 30s and by Monday it is supposed to be in the 80s before the temps drop back down again on Wed.

It's been so cold here the last couple of weeks, everything in the garden has gone comatose! Nothing is growing .. soil is probably too cold.

Cathy, wish you could send some warmth up here a little faster. It has been between 28 and 33 degrees here the last several nights and the dampness from the rain has not helped me get any warm fuzzies yet.

Here how's this?
Now use you imaginations (think to yourself warmth...... remember mind over matter)
check these live webcams from my part of the world. you will also see several animal live webcams; the sea turtle cam is out where I work in our new Sea Life facility@ AM it is a rescued baby with a missing wing, he is being rehabilitating and will be released when the gulf waters get warmer. They have 2 others that were recently rescued as well, however there is only 1 camera. The peguins& seals are at Moody Gardens, here on the island. If you have kids getting ready to attend college and are enterested in a Marine/Maritime/Engineering type career, check out our university's website for what all is offered. Help spread the word about one of the TOP Universities in the world
http://www.tamug.edu

Thinking of getting away from the cold and booking a vacation down south.
be sure to check out these webcams during daylight; otherwise the views are kinda dark.
enjoy.......

checkout what to do in Galveston by visiting http://www.galveston.com

We will have a new pleasure pier over the water opening hopefully by end of summer. Excited I am & can not wait to ride the coaster (was my favorite ride as a kid, now that I am older not sure how I will do, but just gotta try it just once).

SmileIt's Time!!!!!!!!!!!11




May is here, time to get serious about this garden thing. 'Taters are up, lettuce and green onions ready, almost time for tomatoes.



Digging out flower seeds, seeing if mice got in them again, going to plant my cannas, start some rooster comb, maybe some swee'peas. I'm a real hand to winter crop, let's see what happens now. Will be dividing iris and yucca later, start some cuttings, just havin' a ball here in ol' KY.
