Its monsoon season in my neck of the woods. The grass grew six inches in three days, thanks to torrential rains and temperatures in the seventies. The other plants are busting out all over, too! I was pleased and surprised to see my clematis growing again. My husband loved to talk about my clematis... "Honey, your clematis is looking good today!" or "I see your clematis is growing." or "Your clematis is blossoming, all right!" Last summer, I had to transplant my clematis due to a property dispute (and if you've ever had your clematis transplanted, you know how difficult that can be). It faded away, and I was certain I'd never see it again. But this year, my clematis is alive and well and will probably blossom when the time comes!

Looky looky who has the biggest ego on Egosurf! Honestly, I don't know if thats a good thing or a bad thing, but its a thing and its my duty to report it to you. I'm sure it won't last long.

Don't ask me how I came across this yahoogroup for fetishists, I don't even remember now. It sure will make you go "huh?"

(Thanks, Dr. Lobojo!)

A tall weather-worn cowboy from Colorado who walked into a Durango saloon and ordered a beer. The saloon’s regulars quietly observed the drifter through half-closed eyelids. No one spoke, but they all noticed that the stranger’s hat was made of brown wrapping paper. Less obvious was the fact that his shirt and vest were also made of paper, as were his chaps, pants, and even his bootsincluding the paper spurs. Truth be told, even the saddle, blanket and bridle on his horse were made entirely of paper.

Of course when the sheriff heard about him he was soon arrested for rustling.

The internet is a very evil, dangerous place! Watch the video and learn!

I'm sorry to pry, but I have to ask.

How exactly do you get involved in a property dispute over a clematis?

I'm intrigued.

Miss Cellania said...

Hee hee! The dispute was not over the clematis. I lost a piece of property where I parked the car. So I had to move a lot old plants to build a new driveway. I even had to dig up a tree by myself.

"The lighter side of war" was humoriffic, Missy. Way out there.

Miss Cellania said...

John, thanks! I had read the story before on a widow's forum, but never had a proper public link for it. I'll be using that!

Thanks for putting me out of my misery Miss Cellania!
