ON THE BACK BURNER

Aug. 6

It was a beautiful fall day here, except that it is summer. I looked for leaves turning, but not yet.My garden really looks good. I need more grass seed. My plan is to grow grass on  both sides of a foot path that leads to my sons work shop and studio. So far I  have done one side. When I go to pick up the groceries that I ordered, I will get more seed.First I bought a pound bag. Then another pound bag. Then a 2 pound bag. I should have bought the super sized one and be done with it.Why is the abbreviation for pound, lb.? One of my plants is being attacked by slugs. The slugs that I have seen are the size of a small banana.I think  that they are actually called banana slugs. They are disgusting. I heard that if you put out beer in a saucer, they are attracted  to that . My daughter in law swears that she saw a bunch of slugs in a saucer of beer, left them to go out and when she came back, they were gone. She figures that they were just sleeping off a drunken  binge, woke up and crawled away. I am not sure what the moral of this story is. Wonder what brand they like?

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?
