Lousy Weather Day

It wasn’t until 1935 that a manufacturer was able to promise Splinter-Free Toilet Paper. Ouch!

Must have my coffee, it helps to get my heart started!

The day was grey, and it stayed grey all day!  The temperature topped out at 65, and it was moist with some drizzle on occasion.  I got busy trimming the berry garden, and thanks to my welding gloves, I escaped with most of my skin still attached to the bone!  Cleaning out last year’s growth must be done carefully to maximize growth this year.

Lots of trimming required to clean out the beds. Most of the plants were up to the top of the poles before I got started!

Blackberries need pruning each year, so they don’t become unmanageable. Pruning helps maintain tangle-free blackberry bushes and keeps them confined to their space. Keeping blackberry well-pruned also helps the plants send up new shoots, keeps plants healthy, and creates stronger, more productive canes, which increases the fruit yield.  By cutting the plants, next year, I will be getting another abundant harvest.

Last year, Summer of 2019, we had berries for three months!

After lunch, I got good news in the mail that I passed the first two classes in my Ph.D. program receiving passing in  “Organizational Theory And Design”  and  “The Dynamics Of Group And Team Leadership.”  Only 44 more credits are now required.  The eight weeks of on-line activity paid off! It’s not as easy as I thought, but I always wanted to be called Doctor!

I spent almost three hours on the phone with Apple attempting to get some login/coordination issues resolved.  It seems my original iMac changed how it operated after Catalina was installed?  The other two iMacs, the MacBookPro, the three iPhones, and the iPad, are working fine.  We finally got it resolved, but it was not easy!!

We chatted with Colleen for a few minutes on the Bat Phone before heading to the TV room for or evening soiree with “ER,” “Boston Legal” and the other regulars.

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
