RE: My non-gardening weekend


Kitty - I feel the way you do. My house is over 125 years old (on one of
the 12 original lots in town) and some people may turn their nose up at
it (like my folks) but it's homey and comfortable and I could never
leave my gardens after all the time, sweat and emotional energy I've
invested. Besides it will be paid for in 2 years and 8 months. You
couldn't blast me out of that place w/ dynamite.
