ON THE BACK BURNER

June 22

I have a couple of complaints to make and as soon as I see my son, I will tell him about them. A major one is that I bought a beautifully blooming cherry tomato plant and positioned it where it will get full sun and produce little tomatoes all summer. I was specifically told that deer didn't like the taste. I have proof that they do. My plant is chewed to a stump. Any cherry tomatoes that I eat this summer will be from the Farmer's Market, it seems. My second complaint is one that  I have personal experience with. Coming from a community that sees plenty of seasonal guests over the winter months, I should be accustomed to the summer visitors that are here in Port Townsend. I had an errand to do in the historic district , which is their down town. I couldn't find a parking place, not even blocks away. Cars lining up for the ferry were over a block away from the ferry entrance, and that took up street space. I think that it will be like this all summer. I am going to try and beat the crowds and get to my errand early tomorrow. That is a problem too because the stores don't open until 10. I will put that on my list of complaints.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
