Recovering In Style


Hello everyone. I’m in my third week of recovery from back surgery. I hope this fixes the problem once and for all! I tell you what; you certainly discover who the people are in your life that really love you when you go thru something like that. I’m so thankful to everyone that came to visit me and helped me thru the hardest part of it. The garden is really starting to wake up now, but it’s nothing you guys haven’t already seen so I’ll post pictures later after I recover more. I still have very strict limitations on what I can and cannot do. Meanwhile! I found something that really makes my back feel a lot better! Check out my baby; a new Cheverolet Camaro SS with the RS package. I decided it was time to treat myself. I haven’t been satisfied with my vehicles since I had my old green convertible. This sweetheart has a 400 horse power V8 with every possible feature you can imagine. I didn’t even know you could put a manual AND an automatic transmission in a car. It even has it's own phone number! It’s really going to help pamper me while I have to stay out of the garden. Give me a couple more weeks to heal and I’ll get you guys up some garden photos. Oh, Oh, Oh! Some of my photos were published in a book that was released in February; I’ll tell you about that too. God bless!~ Randy

Hi Randy! So glad to see you. I hope your surgery makes all that back pain a dim memory.
How are you guys doing? We are watching another spring in Slidell.

I am glad to hear that you are doing better. My brother-in-law had back surgery a few months back, and he is doing great. I hope you have the same results.

Love your new "baby." I know that it would certainly lift my spirits.

I can't wait to see how your garden has awakened from winter.
Take care.

Glad to hear from you, Randy. I was concerned when I saw Jamie's previous post. I'll pray that you get to work with your wonderful garden really soon. Your new car looks cool, have fun!

Congratulations on your new car.

That is one sharp looking car!
Hopping the surgery will do the trick for you.
Don't worry about the garden.
When we opened our new Salon, and spent every weekend in there remodeling one summer, Surprisingly, the garden did just fine by itself.
