Randy, what a loss!
I would test those sweet potatoes - msybe they will be ok.
Deer have been eating snything in my garden that I forget to protect with chicken wire. Things they left slone earlier are now getting eaten too. I think its the time of year to let go....when frost kills the annuals here, it will be my message to clean up the flower beds. I have a few peppers and tomatoes, enough for meals now and then.

Oh, I'm so saddened. We had a very hard freeze while I was gone to California. Before I left, they said "light frost possible". I didn't have any chance to protect my sensitive garden plants. Consequently, I lost all my tomatoes and peppers. Worse yet, my sweet potato vines are black. They say it affects the actual potatoes. I've never tested that threat, but I'm about to! We just need a rain to soften the ground so I can dig them up.

Sndrea, welcome! What are you growing in your garden?

Kathy I will have to work on that. We have plenty of deer, but they don't seem to have any interest in eating children.

Spud, I think if you can arrange for grizzly bears to carry off those little felons-in-the-making, it would be a warning to other potential little deviants,

I filed a complaint with the FCC Saturday, and expect to get results with that.  If I don't, there is another Federal agency I can file with, and if that fails, will file with the BBB.

I'm glad the large watermelon was too big for the little girl that was taking it, because it was almost ripe, and tasted good.  It was even heavier than I thought.  It was 27 pounds.

Kathy, I had both my lenses replaced about 12 years ago and am generally pleased with the results.  I didn't have cataracts, but my nearsightedness and poor depth of field had been getting worse all my life.  It got to the point that I could only see clearly at 4 inches.  I had to carry 4 different glasses with me to see at all distances.

I was going to have laser surgery done to be able to see without glasses, but the doctor talked me into having my lenses replaced instead.  I had a lens in one eye made so I could see clearly at 2 feet, and the other one so I could see clearly at a long distance.  Between them both, I can now see quite well without glasses from one foot to infinity.  I only use glasses to read small print.

There were two side effects to the lens replacement that all my studies had not revealed and the doctor did not tell me.  One, is that the artificial lenses don't block Ultraviolet Rays as well as natural lenses, so I have to wear sunglasses a lot more than I used to.  The second thing is it makes you more susceptible to the vitreous separating and causing floaters in the eye.  If I had known those two facts, I would not have had the lenses replaced, but had the laser surgery.  I hope this doesn't add to your stress.
