Planning a trip, here is a chart of the gas tax in each state:


Breakfast: Ken-Cheerios, juice, coffee, yogurt; Pat 1/2 Bagel & cream cheese, juice, yogurt, coffee
Lunch: Pimento & cheese sandwiches.
Supper: Burger & fries at Shari’s (free pie day) We had peach pie

I didn’t get anything checked off my list as “done” but I worked pretty hard most of the day. I spent a lot of time working on the Holly Tree:

I found it was growing several good sized limbs from the trunk. This one is almost 3″ in diameter
I had to cut out a lot of branches to get to this one.

This will be on the back side from where we can see it so it won’t be seen unless someone walks around there. I’m afraid this side of the tree is going to be a little unsightly when I get done. I have let it go too long without being trimmed.

I broke my yard broom raking up the leaves and limbs:

I will try to repair it, I have an idea how I can but I may have to buy a new one.

After lunch April asked me to connect the blower to power so she could blow some more sweet gum balls to the street.

Hard working woman.

While she was doing that I went around front to trim some more on the rhododendron.

BTW, the lady came and got the rhody cutting I left out front for her.

We watched the news at 4 o’clock then drove to Corvallis to eat at Shari’s and get a free piece of pie. We ordered the Peach Perfection pie, it was yummy.

Then we went to church to attend Prayer Meeting at 7 o’clock.

When we got home a little after 9 we watched TV until bedtime.


It is raining today so I won’t be doing much work outside. I may go to the shop and see what I can do to that yard broom. Maybe I can help April some in the house.

We have a wedding reception dinner to attend at church tonight. They were married elsewhere and have invited a few of us to celebrate with them.


We had a whopper of a thunderstorm on the way to Corvallis yesterday and it has been raining this morning. This high is supposed to be 64º today.

That’s all for June 27, keep in touch.
