January 6, 2013

Wow, I can hardly believe it has been so long since I last wrote. I have been working all the overtime I can get. I've got daylilies to buy! Actually, I've been averaging about 60-65 hours a week so it's not nearly as much as I worked last year-end but this past season was so difficult, I will have to admit, I couldn't handle as much overtime as last year.

We've been getting some winter weather and the daylilies are buried under a foot or more of snow now. We survived Winter Storm Draco (when did they start naming winter storms?)
 They said this one would miss us................. mostly.  And then there was Euclid...........
Wow, what a storm! This one had us under a Blizzard Warning and dumped 11.8" of snow on us. But we were lucky. This came the day after Christmas and closed roads for a couple of days but it was still better than what some of the Southern states had to deal with. There was an all time record for the number of tornados that hit on Christmas Day. We got it the next day but it was on the cold side of the storm.
























When it was over, it was a sight to behold. We skipped 2 days and got another 5" and then skipped 2 more days and got another 3". So we got more that week than the entire previous winter..... lol

























Here's another shot during the storm.... trust me, it got worse before it wound down.....
But inside, things were pretty much normal......

























As usual, Homeless is hungry, and Cuddles has stolen her bed.


















After having to make a trip outside, Homeless thought perhaps the bed would be better to cover up with.....

But what I REALLY wanted to do was warn you to be careful on Facebook..... I had a close call yesterday.

I saw yesterday morning that I had a new friend request so as usual, I checked to see if any of my daylily buddies were friends with this fellow, since I didn't recognize his name. Yep, looked like a new Facebook user, and he was trying to build up his friend list, so I did the neighborly thing and accepted his friend request. Well, he must have really been anxious to make friends because just a couple of minutes later, he sent me a message and said Hello. Well, I figured he must be wanting to introduce himself, or maybe ask about one of the daylily pictures I have on Facebook so I said Hello back to him. Wow, this guy was FRIENDLY!

He told me that he was looking for a woman to make him happy and that he knew how to make a woman happy. He said he was divorced and had a 16 year old daughter that was just dying to meet me. (REALLY? I'M AMAZED SINCE 5 MINUTES AGO I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HE EXISTED). I told him I was NOT interested in another relationship.. that I'd just gotten out of a 33 year long unhappy marriage last April and then he said it was fate that we'd met and surely I wouldn't throw away the chance for love. (DON'T BET ON IT, DUDE!) Then he told me he know how to make a woman happy and that I am a beautiful woman. (REALLY? DIDN'T HE SAY HE IS DIVORCED? AND I AM SO GLAD I HAVE SOME TALL BOOTS) And then he asked me if I have "meetings" (NOT WITH YOU!!!).  Then he asked where I was and told me he was in France and then he asked me if I was "IN".... (IN WHAT?????). Then he asked what I was doing with my life. (UHHHHHH..... LIVING IT?). Then he asked if we could be friends?  (NOT IN THIS LIFE, DUDE!). He asked if I had an address so we could see each other while we talked. (I HATE TO THINK WHAT HE WANTED TO SHOW ME!!!!  GAG!!!  PUKE!!!! EWWWWWW!!!!!)

By then, I was SOOOOOO over this crap and decided two could play this game. I told him no, I couldn't afford a webcam. I was too poor. (REALLY! MY DOGS, CATS, AND DAYLILIES KEEP ME BROKE.... REALLY). I told him if he was really sincere about loving me, to send money so we could buy food.  THE JERK NEVER ANSWERED!!!!!!  I waited an hour .....  lol..... and I sent him one last message. I said I could tell he wasn't serious about loving me since he hadn't responded so I was unfriending him. I told him I did NOT want another relationship with a man like that.

I checked with some other ladies he was friends with and found out he was flirting with them too. (REALLY??? I'M CRUSHED) See!!!! I knew I wasn't cut out for this love game. I just don't have what it takes to catch a man.... lol   I told my brother-in-law, David, that I'd just had the shortest romance in history. He thought I needed to send the guy one of my "dressing young" pictures (THAT'S ANOTHER STORY, BELIEVE ME) and it would surely win him back. But now that I found out he was already cheating on me behind my back, I DON'T WANT HIM.  David said he figures it may take time, but I'll eventually get over Jean Pierre......

So friends, be careful on Facebook or you may end up like me....... with a broken heart..........

or not.....
