Hey Bill I am pleased to see you back. I had been worried. I hope you keep up the contributions. I have also been on here too rarely to count. Life goes on and we roll along with it whether we want to or not. I agree with you on the elderly aspect. I am 67 but for quite a while have felt like 45 so there you have it. Fathers day in NZ is 5th September. Anyway I hope you had a good day and family contacted you. I still have 2 kids (20&30years old) at home and 4 away. They usually call me. Once again glad to see you back.
I'm in Florida and can't imagine temperatures like that. I have a cousin visiting relatives in Arizona and she is suffering through some terrible heat there as well. Take care. I look forward to reading your blogs.
Your yard sounds so beautiful. My husband really enjoys yard art and I bet he would love yours. I also enjoy working in the yard. I depend on my hubby to do so much though. An irrigation system would be such a help. We also live in the desert of West Texas. Soon it will be 110 days. Not looking forward to that. Enjoying the cooler temps while we can.
