  • My grandfather sold insurance by day and in his spare time he was an artist.
    He mostly painted clowns -- scary clowns.
    A few of his paintings hung in our house, which meant as a kid I had major heebie jeebies nearly all the time, especially at night.
    When you’re a kid getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and you know scary clowns are staring at you from the walls in the hallway, well, you grow up neurotic and afraid.

  • I can hardly believe how beautiful my tomato plants look and I do believe I will have a ripe one well before July 4th!  
    But what I am really anticipating is our first harvest of summer squash. I love squash and am happy to eat it for dinner every night.
    Last year the garden was mostly a bust so I have high hopes for a bumper squash crop this year.
    Mostly gardeners complain about losing their plants to the squash vine borer, but I have managed to offset that pest pressure by delaying planting in order to miss peak egg-laying time.
