This is what got done today. Robert is beginning to stand back and envision his finished project. He folds his arms and spins ideas off the top of his head for landscaping, painting, bringing it all together for a serene setting. “Maybe a purple Martin house that resembles this one…” he ponders. Picking up a color from the brick and painting the framework around the doors…
This was virtually the only sun we saw today. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and rain is possibly coming in. I worked all day gathering rock from around the fan palm so we can relocate it soon farther back in the yard, where it has more room to grow. I made a big pile over many hours. Don’t want to waste good rock.
I imagine days when it’s too cold to go outside. When I will sit close to this window and mark pages in seed catalogs, dreaming. Planning. Envisioning my own dreams coming to fruition.
My oldest daughter just emailed these words of caution. I felt it was worth passing on to you all.
Monday, September 15, 2008, 11:03 AM: This incident has been confirmed. In Katy, TX, a man came over and offered his services as a painter to a female putting gas in her car and left his card. She said no, but accepted his card out of kindness and got in the car. The man then got into a car driven by another gentleman. As the lady left the service station, she saw the men following her out of the station at the same time. Almost immediately, she started to feel dizzy and could not catch her breath.She tried to open the window and realized that the odor was on her hand; the same hand which accepted the card from the gentleman at the gas station. She then noticed the men were immediately behind her and she felt she needed to do something at that moment. She drove into the first driveway and began to honk her horn repeatedly to ask for help. The men drove away but the lady still felt pretty bad for several minutes after she could finally catch her breath. Apparently, there was a substance on the card that could have seriously injured her. This drug is called ‘BURUNDANGA ‘ and it is used by people who wish to incapacitate a victim in order to steal from or take advantage of them. This drug is four times more dangerous than the date rape drug and is transferable on simple cards. So take heed and make sure you don’t accept cards at any given time alone or from someone on the streets. This applies to those making house calls and slipping you a card when they offer their services. PLEASE SEND THIS E-MAIL ALERT TO EVERY FEMALE YOU KNOW!
