Black Granite and Deep Purple

Couldn’t do my usual walk Friday morning – the old big toe was swollen. Dropped a can of peas on it quite sometime ago and it really got swollen and bruised. I guess you would to, if someone dropped a can of peas on you!! Anyway, it’s been pretty good of late, except for now. Can’t remember what I did to aggravate it, but now I can hardly bend the old thing. Thinking maybe I broke some of those teeny, tiny little bones in there and they’re not quited healed?? 

Nat and I decided to take a drive up to the cemetery a couple of days back to check on Mom and Dad’s grave site. Haven’t been there since we got back from Florida. For that matter, since last Fall. So it was time to do some weeding and clean off the head stone. Don’t get me wrong, I love birds, but when it comes to black granite there seems to be some sort of attraction there. So we always give the head stone a good wash whenever we visit. Can’t thank Nat enough for helping me with this. But then again, I married the best!!

Then yesterday we bought some beautiful Geraniums – deep purple and dark pink ones – to plant around the grave site. Should look wonderful against the black granite. Will take a drive up there this afternoon to get them planted. It’s turning out to be the perfect day for it. When it’s good, it’s very, very good!!
