 Laura sitting by her tomato plant she planted for me. It has a cage over it "so it can't escape".  :}

Introducing... "my" garden! This is our fourth and newest plot and is officially my responsibility. (Valerie has a plot to the immediate west and Stephanie has one near the tree line. Mom takes care of the Kitchen Garden.) In years past I haven't helped much with gardening but I wanted to this year. And I like it. I even like working with the aged horse manure, I mean, the dirt. ;) Tomatoes and sweet potatoes, yum!

Bye, Fluffy!

Fluffy moves out tomorrow. He's not going back to camp yet, but someone else is going to have him while we're out West. Believe it or not, I'm actually going to miss having him around. It's been cool watching him. Plus, he's a great icebreaker for visitors, and his heat lamp is great for reading by. :)

Yes, that's me holding him. He feels like a muscular, boneless, jointless human arm... except for the scales, of course. Surprisingly heavy and eerily strong. I like him better in the cage.

Thanks for the memories and the educational experience, Fluffy!
