The Wife On Vacation And The Church Garden Died

The wife is in Punta Cana for the week, soaking up the sun at an all inclusive resort. She and 3 childhood friends set it up in honor of them all turning 50. The wife was a little reluctant to go, worried I would miss her too much, not remember to eat and stuff. Well, I will miss her, and the eating, yeah, right! Truth of the matter is I wish she would do this more often. I don't travel well, and she lives for it, so beam her up Scotty!

My garden idea at church turned out to be a flop! Like most things I've found, the garden idea was discovered too late. My plan was to put in a small plot, get the scouts at church, the younger parishioners, anyone interested in lending a hand to, well lend a hand. If the 15 or so churches in our area all did a small plot that would have been a lot of food for those who needed it. Thanks to the couple of people who did show an interest, I appreciate it. My fate is to have a mind that still has good ideas, but a body that can't carry them to fruition. Oh well, at least I still have my boyish grin!

Andy - Good for both of you to work this out. Sounds like it'll be great for her to vacation and, if you don't like to travel, why should you have to go along?

Cranky - We work well together. My travels include a 3 hour drive to the parents, or flying to Boston to visit the aunt and uncle every couple of years. Both trips cost me about 2 weeks worth of energy capitol, and that's with just sitting around seeing who can tell the biggest lie!

This is a great idea...garden for the hungry! I know it is tough to get others motivated but you tried!

Kim - It's not that they didn't support me, it's more that I couldn't do it my way?
