1. Whenever I go out of town, Steve and #4 send me messages about how they are slobbing it up and being careless around the house- all just to tease me. This time I got #4 back. I sent her a note saying that I decided to surprise her and paint her room while she was gone...her favorite color... 1970's orange. Ha, ha! She actually phoned me to see if it was true.
2. The downside- I hate solitary confinement. The upside- I read an entire novel today. (The Great Gatsby) Thanks for putting the idea in my head, B. I appreciated it more now, reading it as an adult than I did when I was a teen.
3. Bright pink sweet peas grow wild along the banks of the roadside.
