I went to the dentist last week and he had not seen me since I went blonde. I told him that I did it because I heard blonde’s have more fun. It brought back what I heard Dolly Parton once say when someone asked her if she minded being called a dumb blonde. In typical Dolly fashion she responded “no because I am not dumb and I am not blonde”. When this picture was made for some promotional reasons, my friend Bob Longmire a graphic artist and wonderful illustrator saw it and sent me an email. He said “I have worked on the color and softened it up some” hope you don’t mind. Not only did I not mind, I loved it and I can use all the help that I can get.
On to the tomato story. After last years drought, I said that I was not planting anything that had to be watered but what was I doing last weekend? You guessed it, I was planting tomatoes. A family friend, Chuck, grows the most tasty heirloom tomatoes. He plants hundreds of tomatoes just because he loves doing it. Some times my sister will open her door and there will be a big tub of tomatoes sitting on her door step. Chuck had given my brother-in-law quite a few tomato plants. When I was at my brother-in-laws house last weekend he said “don’t you want some of the heirloom tomato plants”? At first I said no and then I thought about bologna and home grown tomatoes out of the back yard and I relented. I planted 5 plants so I should have enough for family and friends. Hope to have bologna and tomato sandwiches in July.
