Memories on Monday

Good Morning!!   I guess this old girl-(the computer ) is going to have to go to the repair shop b/c she will not load any pictures today again.  I had taken some new ones of Frankie the other day and I was going show you them and some old ones of the coons of years past!!!
Tell you about Frankie.  Darn!!!!!
Well this one came up and I didn't even ask for this one!!  LOL   It is from the past tho!!!
Years and years ago!!! This is my Number one favorite rose I had in the rose garden!!! I worked 365 days a year in the rose garden 20 + years ago.  I had my rose garden for over 10 years.  When I gave the roses away I was a sick girl- from working so hard in that garden and spraying them every week!!!

Zoie!!!  Such a pretty girl and so very loving.  In September she will have been gone for 2 years..........
I still cry for her often!!!

I am listening to Roy Orbison as I type this to you!!! He is singing a song written by his oldest son.
The name is "the only one" so good!!!!  Roy Orbison is my favorite singer--- ever!!!

Finally the coons from years ago!!!  Mary is on the left and her son Jake on the right. Did you know if you call then by there name a couple of times, they will learn their name?????? Yes they are very very smart animals!!!! 
There is the picture I took of Frankie the other night --- up on top of the one of coons years ago!!
Frankie has endeared herself to Tom!!!!!!  She is the first and only one to ever do that!!!!
She comes on our back patio at 6 or 7 PM and wants to be feed and Tom will often now go out and feed her now!!!!!  He NEVER did that before!!!!!!  Tom has seen her as a smart girl!!!  She is very sweet and almost loving!!!
People say don't feed the coons but when I moved here 41+ years ago my southern neighbor  was feeding them!!  He said they were special animals-- I was afraid of them back then!!!!
When he moved away they came over here and it took me a long time to trust them and to get to know them!!!!  They kept showing me they were good animals-- smart one too.  My relationship with the coons has been 41years + now and I really KNOW them!!!!! 

Love coming your way!!  Fern


  1. We love seeing those raccoons! We have an occasional visit from one here too.

  2. Hi Fern and friends, Love your rose-it is so beautiful, but I know how much work roses are-so now I only like the climbing ones or old style that don't need as much care.
    Thanks for sharing; the Coons are cute.
    Hugs, Noreen

  3. Hope they get everything fixed up with the computer for you.

  4. We hope that the Computer Fixer Upper Guy gets you back up and running SOON.

  5. Roses are so beautiful, I wish I had the patience to garden. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Fern, your rose is gorgeous - simply gorgeous. Sorry your computer is giving you fits. That is such a pain when that happens. Love your pictures of the coons too. I'd be afraid of having kitties around coons, but apparently it has never caused you any problems.

  7. You are an amazing lady, Auntie Fern ♥

    Love ya lots♥

  8. It's sad to give the roses arway after such a long time, think they were a little like friends. It's bitersweet to see your beautifiul Zoie... I sometimes ponder how it would be when she would be still there...

  9. Zoie was so pretty and special!

    I love seeing your coon pictures. We don't have them here and I admit, I think I would be afraid of them.

  10. Hi Fern! I was great to hear from you again. I think it's wonderful that you are friends with the neighborhood raccoons. I didn't realize they were so smart.

    Glad to hear you are doing well and I enjoyed seeing the pictures of the kitties. Take care!
