It is...it's catastrophic. I just put up a new thread with a link to current fire info so as not to be a downer on any of our fun threads here.

DH and I both need to update ours too. We'll probably go the burn and sprinkle route.
Not planning to leave anytime soon, just wanted to lock in a good price!

I'm going the cremation route too!

I was thinking more along the lines of "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash...

Did you dig out your patch? Milkweed are considered a horrid weed in farm fields. That's one of the reasons the butterflies aren't around much anymore, the farmers use Roundup and kill anything other than what they're growing.
Not sure what kind of weeds aside from dandelions I had. Dad pointed out ragweed, mowed it and my sinuses went haywire, I wasn't sick, I had a severe case of hay fever.

I need shade loving plants that attract butterflies, I can get some sun loving along the south wall. I'll get you my PO box so you can send me some seeds.

I went down, down, down as the flames went higher...

I have always told my Doctor I would probably start smoking again!

I have to wait until my Dad dies, then I can start smoking again.

Every person in this building that has quit smoking says that everyday they still want a cigarette. If that is true, then why would I want to quit at my age and spend what time I have being miserable? To live longer? I am 76. How long do you want folks to live to? 176? I don't want to live until I become infirmed and feeble. Right now I can still take care of myself, cook my own meals, clean my house and go where I want to. And I can still smoke. My life, my choice. Even my doctors no longer tell me to stop smoking.

I quit smoking 38 years ago. I haven't craved a cigarette in a very long time.

Worked outside for a couple of hours, getting rid of tomato plants that are done for the year. Cleaned the pots and re-purposed the soil around the shrubs. I use lots of organic matter so the soil is still good. It looks beautiful!

Wow, that is terrific! DH stopped over 25 years ago and hasn't gone back either. I never smoked, hated the smell and had no desire to.
