What's this Flower??? (answer)

OK all you smarty pants,, What's this one..

we have to stop meeting like this! Today's flower is definitely a lily. What kind of lily is the question. Probably an Oriental or Asiatic Lily. It's not a day lily as day lilies have really long slender leaves which start at the base of the plant and continue upward toward the flower heads.Have a great week-end

Margaret, you only get half points. It' an Asiatic Lily.
Don't let Richard know, I don't want that 325 pounder mad at me...


The name of that lily is Stargazer I have a lot of them in my garden and they are blooming now.

Thanks Bev N.

Happy Birthday Pooh

Happy Birthday to our Canadian Pooh this year..... he is 80! "This
Silly old bear" continues to thrive.
Pooh's ascent into worldwide worship stems from his English and
Canadian roots. His stories are the brainchild of A.A. Milne, a British author
who invented the "silly old bear" to entertain his young son,
Christopher Robin.

P7240017...I made the 14" Pooh also the willow chair, most of members
Of the "Polar Hugg-A-Bear Club" from Campbellford made one, what a fun time we also had making the chairs.

P7240024...The Pooh bird's bath my elderly friend from Georgia gave me.

P7240026... Pooh's garden ornaments are now in my garden apartment.

P7240027... The August Teddy Bear Review.

Pooh Hugs,


Thanks for this cute post Bev. V.

Ways to maintain a healthy insanity

1. At lunchtime, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.

2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.

3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

4. Put your garbage can on your desk and label it "IN".

5. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

6. In the memo field of all your checks, write "for smuggling diamonds."

7. Finish all your sentences with "in accordance with the prophecy."

8. Don't use any punctuation.

9. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.

10. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat -- with a serious face.

11. Specify that your drive-through order is "to go."

12. Sing along at the opera.

13. Put mosquito netting around your work area and play tropical sounds all day at work.

14. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.

15. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood.

16. Have your coworkers address you by your wrestling name, Rock Bottom.

17. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream "I won! I won!"

18. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking
lot yelling, "run for your lives, they're loose!!"

19. Tell your children over dinner, "due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go."

20. And the final way to keep a healthy level of insanity . . . e-mailthis to someone to make them smile and laugh. It's called therapy.

The One With The Most Toys Wins

New 47 foot water toy...
Party Room Exterior

Party Room (Capacity 750 People)

The saying goes "He who dies with the most toys wins"... Well I found the winner and he's not dead.

This is our RV neighbor son's home in a town not too far from here. He lives in a new subdivision with maybe 12 homes all about 15,000 square feet each.

This young man bought the 30 acres behind his home so he could have his gentleman's farm behind his home.

I took a few pics but I was amazed at the things he has around the property. Along with his new boat he has 4 jet skies, another 30 foot Sport boat, and there are 4 wheelers everywhere and a barn with about 6 snowmobiles in it with a football size room full of hay.

His father sarted him in business 6 years ago and he has been very successful and is very generous with his parents.

Wait until you see some of the animals he has on this farm.

Ivan R. Vacation Pics #2

Also last week I went to Lake Memphremagog. When I was a kid my grandfather owned a cottage on the east side of the lake on the american side not far from Beebe , Qu├ębec. He sold it when I was fifteen. Our family spent our summers there. We went back to see the old place and then drove back thru Cedarville , Fitch Bay, and the Georgeville. We rented a pontoon boat and got out on the lake. Here are a few pictures.
#4 (621)(629) Our old (renovated) cottage on the water.
#5 (633) Old covered bridge at Fitch Bay
#6(639) Owls head fron the water.

The Obedient Wife

There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife, When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me.

I want to take my money to the afterlife with me."And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he died she would put all of the money in the casket with him Well, he died.

He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When they finished , just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, thewife said, "Wait just a minute!" She had a box with her, she came over with the box and put it in the casket.

Then the undertakers locked the casket and they rolled it away.So her friend said, "Girl, I know you weren't fool enough to put all that money in there with your husband.

"The loyal wife replied "Listen, I'm a Christian, I can't go back on myword. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him.""You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!!!?"

"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote him a check. If he can cash it, he can spend it."Send this to every clever female you know.Remember Girls We All Must Have Our Own Cheques
