^^^^^ THAT is what I was afraid of when I moved from perpetual summer SoCal to North Idaho. This winter has been a pleasant surprise. Not at all like the poor fellow in the picture above.

Stopped at Costco for my usual Thursday lunchtime Polish Dog and they have their Spring plants/tools/fertilizer/etc. Picked up five Woodburn Select Boxwood, (Buxus sempervirens Woodburn Select), plants. Always like Boxwood bushes. Now to decide where to plant them.

Costco Polish Dogs. We were there today as well and they came up in conversation. We've decide to do a lunch there sometime and get some. We hear they are good!

Hard to beat a buck fifty for a dog and a soda. . . with a refill! Used to love their Hebrew National hot dogs, but when they went to their in-house Kirkland brand, the quality went way, way downhill. The Polish dogs are at least edible, and somewhat filling.

Volosong, I would check on Dave's Garden [the website] or some place similar to check on planting dates. I know there are some bulbs that you can plant in the spring, and some that do much better being planted in the fall. You are going to enjoy this first year in your new home - getting your yard and garden planted! Enjoy!!!

Had a busy week. Deep cleaned the RV to get ready for this summer, Didn't have any mice this year. My wife's nephew, who stores our camper, found some stray kittens last fall. Since his wife is allergic to cats and he doesn't like cats, they call the outbuilding home. My sister, son and granddaugher all had birthdays this week. Got new neighbors,my old boss. I thought I had seen him around town. He told me that he quit about 5 years ago. The place went under shortly after left. The big boss couldn't run the place himself. Watching my grandkids this weekend. Went to a BB game last night.

Had the flu the past two weeks. Knock down slap your mama sleeping curled up on the bathroom floor shivering burning up flu. Good thing is, I lost 20 pounds.

...and so it goes.

"They" say another round of the flu is upon us. First was Flu A and this one is Flu B. Boy I hope I don't get a repeat. I was really sick with whatever it was I had.
