Throw Back Thursday...
1957 me ... Girl Scout Troop 727!
Yesterday I took my new computer to Turk. He will go through it and take out all the "junk" that is installed on new ones. Then I came home and paid bills, waded through a bunch of old bank statements and shredded them. Still in the tossing out mode.....Also yesterday Jake Wardel, my electrician guy, came by and changed the bulb in the automatic light over the carport. I have a number of automatic lights around the property .... up at the pump house, on the barn, and he installed some on the front of the house a couple years back. The porch has motion lights.
Today I will mow the grass. Mike should be here to weed-eat.

Go pick one up from the store, shred it and make a salad, or cut it up and put in refrigerator biscuits with butter/garlic/parsley/cheese and maybe a little pesto and bake the biscuits. Mmmmmmm.....
