doodle by andre: did not, did not!


DID NOT, MR. ANDRE SO-AND-SO, DID NOT. NO WAY. (Already had enough wheelbarrows; got a second tractor instead.)

    You know it is spring when that is what happens when you go to get toothpaste, I would have come home with 50 or more plants good for you for showing some control.

    Oh! this made me chuckle Margaret and then I read Yolands’s comment – I do agree.

    Best wishes Sylvia (England)
    PS I didn’t get any frog food!

      Welcome to Sylvia and Donalyn.

      Yes, Sylvia, Yolanda’s comment is precisely how I react. And so? And Donalyn, apparently I needn’t tell you how many pairs of gloves I have in the back cupboard (that I never wear but simple cannot resist) and the entire shed here that is devoted to winter pot storage. Ahem.

      I think what set off Andre was the frog food, since he knows full well that my frogs eat plenty without any help from me (as you can see in this photo I took, if you have a strong stomach). I just should not have told him I spent money on frog food.

    3 weeks ago my wife and I went to the shops to buy popcorn and came back with a house we liked – so we rang the agent and she said we couldn’t have that one but she did have more houses so we went to look and now we are buying one.

    All we did was go to the shops for popcorn.

    I have thus far resisted drawing ‘ideas for how our garden will look and very important things we will need to buy ‘ flowcharts.

      *notes delightful but slightly offkilter photo series by pot who calls kettle black* …. returns to fixing broken migrated blog pages, a task that shall never end, thereby preventing gardening or garden-shopping forever.

  4. Falling off my chair laughing! Because, this is what my HUSBAND does regularly, and I am the gardener of the fam. I routinely make fun of him on my blog. Every time I hand over the credit card to run to the grocery or hardware store, I have to admonish him “DO NOT BUY PLANTS.” Mainly because he buys one of about fifty different things, and then I have to figure out where to put them.

    PLus, I am a little bit of a control freak in the garden. I love the doodles. Keep ’em coming!

      Welcome, Katie. Thanks for sharing the story of the compulsive shopper in your midst. (That’s it, blame the other guy. Tee hee.) See you soon again, I hope.

    yesterday my wife and I went to the shop to buy some Bustelo coffee and nearly came home with a brown 1975 mustang. (We had to use all of our will power not to buy it).

    This morning as I sit here drinking my coffee I am trying very hard to to think about the Mustang. Instead I am thinking about lawn mowers.

    Very cute drawing and words that would make a nice notecard. If we don’t laugh at ourselves we miss out, since a merry heart is the best medicine.
