Just a quick note, and clarification

We came down here to La Jolla to spend 10 days with our new granddaughter. The day after we got here our son-in-law, who had been feeling very poorly for the previous couple of weeks, went into heart failure. They did an EKG and Cardioversion on him, drained 15 pounds of fluid off of him, a bunch of other stuff, and are doing another procedure today to remove fluid from the pleura. He is not responding as well as hoped to any of this. He is 33, has a 6 month old daughter, and we could all use whatever good thoughts, prayers, whatever, from any of you who might feel so inclined.

I won't be posting for awhile because we're pretty much consumed with helping with things around here, and I will probably stay after my wife goes back home (I'm retired, and she still has 5 years to go). I have always found the Photo Group on DU to be the absolute best on the board (apologies to Pets, and Cooking) and I always enjoy logging in here.

So, no more spamming the group from me for awhile. I wish you all peace, and long life.


Last post for awhile.

Tower of Jewels plant

Our Tower of Jewels plant is beginning to open. It's the first time I've tried to grow one. It's only about 2' tall at the moment, but the thing grew 12" over the last 48 hours. It will supposedly get between 8-9' tall, and covered with little magenta flowers. Then it dies (it only lives two years, staying between 6-8" high during the first season).

I did not know that Budweiser had a dog.
