From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 05/18/19, 11:32 AM:
And a late Happy Saturday morning to all
and I hope your day is starting off well. When I awoke and saw
the weather forecast I started out early to get all of my barn
and outside chores done. We're having a heat wave with very high
temperatures and not a cloud in the sky. Some are even saying we
are in the early stages of a drought which certainly concerns
anyone with domestic livestock. But after two years of record
rainfall I knew that sooner or later the tables would turn.
After all, Florida is truly a "feast or famine" state when it
comes to rainfall. So, I'll turn it over to God and ask Him to
lead me on the path to handling it properly and enjoy the day on
the inside until much later. There is really no way you can do
anything about things beyond your control, so ease your mind
with something else and enjoy Saturday, a great day to relax and
have a little fun on your schedule, not a task master's. God
bless you all.
Thank you, Jimmy!

Here Are 31 Clever Tips To Make Life Feel A Little Easier
Thank you, Hannah! These are quite nice, actually!
From Me ('65) of NC - 05/17/18:
This is so very difficult for me to accept,
as I've always considered dandelions to be a personal affront not only to my
gardening skills but to my total sense of self-worth, but I'm working on it.
