A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
I have dubbed my little sister Ann the Costco Fairy since she has come once a month laden with goodies from Costco where she takes a tape measure to measure the width of the toilet paper so we don't get shorted, so to speak. Last week she came laden with this big pot of beautiful fall bronze colored mums. You can read more about Annie and the Costco Fairy if you go to the family blog Penrose Mornings which is linked on the upper right side of this blog. Plus you might find some interesting tidbits about my family.
We didn't have much luck with petunias this summer because the soil is so bad. Our kids dumped a little good soil on the tiny patch between the driveway and the sidewalk and look at what we got. So now, the good Lord willing, we will have to add more decent soil next year and get our petunias back where they belong.
