I have the best Friends

Thank you for the sweet things you said to me!!!  I have the best friends!!
I said in my last post that my mind is so far from what it use to be!!!  That is so true!  I have days that I am dumb as dirt!! I use to be pretty smart for the kid they called dumb in school!!!  I worked  many gas stations for 25 years and was the reason they were successful.  I never dew a salary and never paid SS taxes in my name b/c it was not required.  I was told by my first husband I was not important.  I had been told that all my life until Tom came into my life, so I had no reason to doubt it. My first husband was physically and mentally abusive.
I really didn't know how important to the business I was until Tom came to work for me.  He pointed out to me all I did and how little the first husband was doing even tho he was running one station and I was running the other-- the busy one!
Back then I did so much math b/c I kept the books for both stations. Another thing I did was make my own clothes for years I did that.
Now I can not do either!!  My mind is going!!!!!!

Picture # 1 is me with Amanda, I got her when she was 4 and a half years old.....
Photo #2 is some of our tomatoes that got hurt some last night with a storm we had-- I think they will recover.
Photo # 3 is to show you I made soup today-- the week-end is coming.
Photo # 4 is just some of our hydrangeas that are in bloom now.
Photo # 5 is the kittens when we first got them at 2 weeks old!!
Photo # 6 is me at 77.7 years old--- I told you my mind is going, well last post I said 77.6-- I was wrong!!!!!!!
Thank you again for boosting my ego. 

Love coming your way,  Fern


  1. We think you are doing really well. Just looks at you writing blog posts. It is fun to see your animals in the past and present. Hope the soup was really good. Take care.

  2. I think you are wonderful, Fern! I wish I could give you a big hug!! xox

  3. You were a HIDDEN TREASURE until TOM Found you. NOW you are here for all of us to enjoy.

    Your carrots look beautiful. Sorry that the storm damaged some of your tomatoes.

  4. OH, we think you are very smart Fern. You know stuff that we dont. Take care

  5. You are one of the sweetest peeps we know, Auntie Fern! Your blue hydrangea is just beautiful!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  6. I love what Frankie Furter & Ernie said. I want to say that too! I had to laugh at the picture of the kitties in the box. I'll bet you wish you could put them in a box and they'd stay there when they get all wild in the middle of the night. I love the picture of Amanda...but then, I'm partial to hounds. I think you're a genius that you even figured out that you are 77.7. I just say I'm 51 and that lasts all year long.

  7. Hey, it's your age...pick one you like!

  8. Oh, Miss Fern, you are SUPER duper impawtant to us! We think you're beautiful and smart and you have one of the bestest hearts of anyone we know. We think it's pretty darn impressive that you have a bloggie at 77.7 years young. Lots of people quit trying new stuff as the years pass. But not you! You're our hero!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  9. Mom said she does puzzles so she doesn't get as dumb as dirt

  10. Howdy Fern, you certainly aren't dumb and we think meeting Tom and marrying him shows how darn smart you are cause he loves and appreciates you!!! We love all your photos especially the little bird one. Is it a hummingbird? No worries, and love, Carol (and Stella and Rory)
