This is ME

SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
  One summer, my parents took us from Little Rock, Ark. to Hollywood, Calif. in our woody station wagon.  It was around the time of the 77 Sunset Strip TV show which was on from 1958 until 1964.    I remember Daddy buying the map to the stars homes and winding our way around to see it all.  Can you imagine the size of our eyes as we stared at the sites?  The best house we saw, according to my Mama, was Clark Gable's.  It was a drive out to Incino and Daddy grumbled.   Mama wanted her picture taken in front of Clark Gable's gate and must have been leaning on the bell because a voice came out saying "Yes?"   My Mama from Little Rock, Ark. talked to Clark Gable's wife!   I don't think Mama ever, for one minute, forgot that day.   For me, it was when Daddy stopped for gas on a busy Hollywood corner.   Stopping for gas was not the most fun I ever had UNTIL here comes Ed Byrnes, aka "Kookie," star of 77 Sunset Strip and most important person in my life.  My Mama said go ask him for an autograph but I couldn't.   I couldn't move nor breathe.    He looked over and winked at that little girl staring out of the car window.   Mama said my face turned red and he must have seen it too because he laughed.  That was some vacation !   And can you even think how fast I told all my friends when I got home that I "met" Kookie?   No texting in those days so I had to wait until I got home. Waiting is and was impossible to think about,  but that's the way we did it in those days... smile.   

Here's Kookie singing my most favorite song ever

Summer is the warmest season of the year when the sun shines directly on one half of the world. Summer in the Northern Hemisphere begins about June 21st - the date of the summer solstice. It ends about September 23, the date of the autumnal equinox. Usually, July and August are the hottest months of the summer season. Crops, trees, and other plants reach their full maturity in summer.

HOME and GARDEN

Hot season tips
The hottest time of the year is here. Extremely high temperatures may create some challenge for gardening. What can we do to neutralize burning effect of Summer?

Hot + Dry: keep your eye on irrigation. Do not let tropicals get their root ball dry out. If you rely on sprinkler system, additional hose watering may be required, especially for newly planted plants.
Hot+Wet: wet summers may be more problematic than dry, believe it or not. When dry, extra water can be added. Excessive rain can not be reduced. Wet soil and hot air is not the best combination (remember, as cold and wet!) and may cause some plant problems, from root rot to leaf fungus. Keep potted plants that require good drainage and dry soil - under a roof (for example, Desert roses). For large collections, you may use a carport or similar frame with plastic roof. Use shade cloth over clear plastic to avoid overheating.
Watch for fungus: wet+hot+dark is its favorite place. When hand watering, make sure do it early enough before dark, so leaves get dry before going to bed. Apply fungicides as needed, especially on new growth.
Seek for shade for tender potted plants. Move pots away from locations with afternoon sun when it gets too hot - even for full sun species. Bring them back to full sun by Fall.
Time to trim! During hot season, plant metabolism is at its highest, and everything grows like crazy. Cut it down as much as you need, it will grow back in no time, and will be trained the shape you want.

 JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks.

My wife cannot ride in a car without telling whoever is driving what to do, when to do it, etc. She is, bar none, the worst backseat driver in the world. I have long thought this, though she would deny it.

She claims she seldom, if ever, makes comments about my driving. I, of course, claim the opposite. And now I have proof!

The other day, we were headed to the mall and my daughter piped up, "Daddy, before you married Mommy, who told you how to drive?"


 
 Q. How does a SOUTHERN BELLE call her family to dinner in the summertime?

A. All right, everybody get in the car.

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp


'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
