You'll do great. I know that, partly, because you are nervous. Remember, delegate.

I am getting ready to head into Vancouver for my pain program and my swallow test to see what is going on with my throat. I am still having kidney pain and am relying on my learned methods of dealing with it as I can't eat, drink or take any medication until after the test. The eating part is okay because I haven't been anyway. But not being able to drink anything is the challenge.

But I have a very positive attitude about everything. I had a chat last night with one of my Dad's old University buddies from Ontario. He calls me every once in awhile to chat...I know he misses Dad a lot. He said Dad would be proud of me on how I have been handling things. That meant a lot.

It's been dry, dry, dry here. We have had only .6 of an inch of rain during the last 2 months. In view of that and the fact that "arthur" has seriously taken up residence in the joints in both of our bodies and also that our looney dog, Harley, loooooooves to dig, we decided not to put in a garden this year.

So, in light of all those factors, this morning Glenn and I planted a small garden of sorts in some of those upside down planters. Between thrift stores and a bargain, we ended up with three of them. One only has a single port in the bottom, but the other two have the bottom one plus multiple side ports.

When we were done, we had 4 roma tomato plants, one each of red, green, orange, and yellow bell peppers, a grape tomato plant and, on top of two of the planters, I put a tarragon plant in one and a thyme in the other.

The herbs will grow nicely and the added benefit is that they will help to keep the moisture in the body of the planter.

There was a "stowaway" in the green pepper plant pot that looks something like a cucumber, zucchini, squash or melon of some sort. I put that in a separate pot to see what we'll get. Or....it might simply be a weed. Only time will tell.

I can taste the grape tomatoes already.

I'm watching the guys massacre the bushes and trees across the street. You'd think they'd teach them a bit about pruning before setting them loose with a chainsaw. Yikes.

I'm also watching my young kitten bug the stuffing out of the older cat. He is going to whomp her pretty soon. Thinking about babetoo and hoping her kitties came home.

You will do fine. Otherwise you would not have been chosen to do the job. Good Luck.

More experience, more skills, PF pretty soon you'll be so valuable they'll pay you what you're really worth (priceless)!

Congrats! You'll be fine! Obviously this says something about your capabilities and the fact folks know you'll do the job right.
