"Time for a cold one, Eddy! " (from the movie Vacation)

It was 97 today but felt like 103 degrees F. ...I just took a bath and now I'm "having a cold one"...

We're supposed to have storms tonight when the cold front comes in so I brought my mums in...the  ones I haven't planted yet. 
 But the ones in the ground from last year are looking great..........
I need to prune back the Russian sage.....
I think this is the last tomato for the season except for some cherry tomatoes.  See the Daddy (or Mommy) long legs?
And guess what else I got? 
Oh yeah, a new tablet!  I've wanted one for several years now but couldn't justify paying so much but this was on QVC as a TSV for $99.00!!!!!!   Life time technical support in the U.S.A.  and 6 months of Oyster for free!  By the time it all worked out and I opted for the "drop & spill" insurance it ended up at about $138 but still I thought it was a good deal and so far so good!  I'm in love!
This is an Acer Iconia dual core 7" tablet.  Now I can take it with me and keep abreast of the weather if I have to head for the basement tonight!  I hope I have room for all the "apps" I want to download...LOL!
Happy Trails!


  1. Oh, I love your new tablet! You'll have lots of fun with that! It's always a challenge to learn something new but there's so much more you can do with these! I'll take a cold one, too....if you have any left! heehee! We like some of the Octoberfest brews and special seasonal beers, too. I like Sam Adams Summer Ale, too! I don't drink that much...but sometimes a beer tastes so good! I remember you said you had one with a BLT...sounds good! Hugs!

  2. Ahh, Blue moon with orange!! I have a little Acer Netbook for 3 years now. It's still going strong and packs in my purse!

  3. Yay!
    Glad you got a new tablet!
    That will be a lot of fun :)

  4. I am certain you will love that tablet! It will come in handy when you are stuck in the basement! Good buy too! :)

  5. Yay on new technology purchases. Tell your storm it would have so much more fun in California, especially the Bay Area.
