"Everybody must get stoned"...Bob Dylan

Guess I need to explain this picture. We didn't realize it had been posted on our web album. Yes that is exactly what you think it is, marijuana. I thought it would be a good addition to our food storage.
Kidding. According to our neighbor Jeff, Iowa used to grow marijuana during WWII for the hemp to make rope and clothes. This is what is left over. My neighbor tells me she calls it ditch weed. This plant was growing behind Jeff's garage along the fence that separates our yards. The plants come back every year in spite of being sprayed. I have found four plants growing in our own lawn. One of which I haven't pulled up yet. Guess I should do that.

Sooo...we now own a cat. Here's the story: I was pulling out of Holzhauers when I spotted a wittle kitten who looked rather frail and sick who was sitting in the middle of the road. It apparently had not eaten in a while. It's little meow pulled at my heart strings and I brought it home. After a trip to the vet it became ours. We have named it Emmy. The kid's won't leave it alone but it sure is fun to watch them play with it. It has to be one of the most mellow cats I have ever met before - to the extreme. The vet told us it was about 5 weeks old, and that was on Friday of last week. Never thought we'd own a kitty but it's part of the fam now. meow!

Our days are full of playing at the park, crying and wearing "petty dress" as EJ would say.
The dress and purple jumper are clothes I wore 30 some odd years ago.
