Paula - I went right over and left a comment on your article. It was a hoot to read about you “sneaking” around with your camera.
Grit brings back some fun memories for me. My sister sold it door to door when we were kids. I’m pretty sure that Grandma and Grandpa were her best customers!

Robin - Hey Miss Lacy. I hope you are having a FAB weekend. I have tried three times (after getting my e-mail verified) to put a comment over at GRIT. I keep getting an error page. Here’s what I typed:
The most creative thing I can think of is the use of free cinder blocks to surround the first 50 feet or so of our gardens. They are excellent for retaining lovely garden dirt, which in turn holds lovely organic veggies.
Organic gardening ROCKS! Take care, Robin Stokes
Hugs to you, you swell friend, you. 😆 Hugs, Robin
Linda - GRIT ?! I didn’t know they were still around. I remember going to Grandma’s and reading Grit . She would let me do all the puzzles.
It’s like finding an old family friend again 1
