Duck Tape, what a great resource to use for repairing all kinds of things; like my husband’s reclining chair. Where your body touches the recliner, the material started peeling. No, it’s not leather, it’s that stuff we call pleather. The cushion constantly peels leaving a fine layer of pleather pieces on the floor in different parts of the house. Instead of sewing a cushion cover, I decided to use brown Duck Tape. This stopped the peeling and covered the worn spot. The tape works for me…….that is until we purchase a new chair for Bulldog Man.
Did you know Duck Tape comes in a multitude of colors and designs to include but not limited to; animal prints, college and NFL football team logos/colors?
Garden update on several areas:
Arugula, time to harvest and place in salads.
Collards, still growing, need to spray because bugs are eating at them.
Lettuce, Boston and Mesculin, ready for harvest.
Tomatoes, Dad’s Sunset and Purple Russian both need cages and more time to grow.
I’m not sure what this is, it popped up in my Tomato above ground box. This may be a melon of some sort or squash, your thoughts?
Yesterday, June 13th was my Birthday. I told Bulldog Man and Tank I really didn’t want to celebrate, I just wanted some quiet time to relax and maybe catch a pizza in town. Earlier in the day, I went to court with our son Tank to settle a case regarding his injuries from being jumped and injured at his previous job. It took months to get to court. When we went into the court room, the entire process took 10 minutes and the case was settled and closed. I’m happy this case is over, and our son is in the process of healing. He still doesn’t have 100 percent usage of his hand and shoulder.
Later that evening while enjoying my birthday pizza in town, I received a phone call from Tank; he informed me a young male driver in a Silverado decided to turn in front of him to get a parking space located off the side of the road. Let me explain the situation. In town there are several streets that are one way. Main Street has 3 lanes, all of which head east. Along side of the street on both sides are parking spaces. Tank was driving his truck in the left lane east bound when another truck was driving east in the middle lane. All of a sudden, the middle truck decides he wants to park on the left side of the street, cutting across my son’s lane with no regard to any traffic. Instead of watching for vehicles in the left lane, this young man turned his truck toward the parking space on the left side of the street: driving right into our son’s massive 1 ton truck’s front quarter panel. Damaged the front right side of our son’s truck, pushing in the big bumper he made for the truck. Squished the front quarter panel and the hood of the truck into the engine area. So much for a quiet birthday L
I’m looking forward to the weekend; I have Saturday to do a few things around the house. Then on Sunday, I return to Texas to help my Dad.
Temperatures have peaked into the high 90’s. Any type of gardening or yard work this time of the year is done in the early morning hours or later in the evening when the sun starts to go down.
