Thought you all might get a kick of what we do here in NE FL when a hard freeze is predicted and you have to protect the grapefruit

This is the sheet tent I made using 4 sheets getting it over the top of the 16' tree in the wind was a interesting experience




Add a heat lamp and you get these rather interesting shadows



Tonight I am adding a 2nd heat lamp

Haha, that's great Karla!

Happy Wednesday everyone. Only two days left of work!


Today's Question(s):
Who do you resemble more personality wise your Mom or Dad ?


Definately my dad. Less worry and more spontinaety makes for a sometimes awkward but often exciting existence.


Bonus Question:
Would you be considered a livelier or more quiet member of your family ?


Quieter in a sense that I usually keep to myself when around most people but there are a few friends who I let my hair down a bit more for.


Just for fun Questions:
Have you ever taken a Typing Class or learned on your own ?


Nope, just learned on my own. I probably have an awful technique but the words get onto the page pretty quickly and the letters usually appear in the order I want to so I don't really care.

Have you ever made and flown a paper airplane ?

I sure have. When I was at primary school there was no better way of annoying the teachers than hastily constructing one under the desk and throwing it towards the front when they turn to face the board. We had fun.

What was the last "outside thing" you did ?

Shovelled the snow off the drive. Actually quite enjoyed it too!

What are you drinking right now ?

A glass of Polish cola. There is this brand called 'Hoop' which is made in Warsaw and I recently discovered, to my delight, that it is stocked in the Polish foods section of my local supermarket. I don't drink fizzy drinks very often but it's actually really good stuff!

I think someone moved my house during the night
Where or were did I end up

Not where I am. We are still colder. Yuk. Oh when will this winter end!

Today's Question(s):

Who do you resemble more personality wise your Mom or Dad ?

Thankfully my Dad. We are the only sane ones in my family.



Bonus Question:

Would you be considered a livelier or more quiet member of your family ?

I used to be shy and quiet. Now I am very lively and talkative. You could say I've grown into myself. I am still quieter than my family though because my family is very loud.

Just for fun Questions:

Have you ever taken a Typing Class or learned on your own ?

Learned in Junior High well at least a little. I still type with mostly 2 fingers.

Have you ever made and flown a paper airplane ?

Of course.

What was the last "outside thing" you did ?

Dug out part of the muck in our culvert.

What are you drinking right now ?

Coffee that is getting cold.



Yum I am having homemade Spinach, Bean, and Rice Soup. It is so good.

Yeah for Gumby!
