Re: all LA Iris lovers

From: RYFigge@aol.com

All LA Iris lovers rally around THE flag, that is, the REblooming iris flag.  
If you don't already belong to the Reblooming Iris Society, hurry and join o 
you will miss out on a wonderful display for the Louisiana Iris which  
  We decided the Louisiana irises had been overlooked  (and they are too 
beautiful for that!) so this issue of the RECORDER has some articles on LA 
reblooming  AND a slide of one is  gorgeously featured on the cover in 
color!.  I am so proud of the way Kathy   has surpassed even herself with how 
she has edited this issue!  You will find the articles are very 
people-oriented  - very readable and interesting.  Members have been very 
kind with helpful ideas, etc   I hope everyone continues  in this manner for 
the next editor.
  Even as the proof reader - reading  it over 3 or 4 times, I found it so 
interesting that sometimes I got carried away and missed making some 
corrections -- so just remember that all the good you see are  to be credited 
to Kathy -- the typos are all my fault - -- and I pride myself on being a 
good proofreader  (I did  enough of it for my husband  often in Latin and 
German -- guess you pay more attention if it isn't fascinating!)
There is still time to join and receive this fabulous edition:  Charlie 
Brown, Membership Chairman,  3114 So  FM 131,  Denison, TX   75020     
(Charlie,  at last I spelled "Denison" this time with one "n"  --  The p.o. 
should be happy enough to Congratulate me!)
One year is 5 dollars, 3 yrs = 13 dollars  for one person -- if I was a  
little younger, I;d join for life at  a hundred dollars!)

Now for a report on my accident -- I was coming home from a geneology talk - 
about 4 p.m and suddenly there was an accident in front of me (18 wheeler  
had  flipped on its side on top of a Mercedes - this was on I-95 - ---in 
spite of breaking, it appeared so fast that I hit the car in front - we were 
like dominos - my airbags added to the confusion, besides helping - I guess - 
anyhow . my beloved plymouth van is no more, and I',m  trying to be pollyanna 
-    in comparison to what could have happened, I feel very lucky, if 
bruised!  There mus have been an angel sitting on my shoulder.  My right knee 
(and, hush, hush  my tummy) are black and blue.   The tummy had plenty of 
padding, it just isn't  comfortable to lean over --  AND  You know those fat 
garden knees weren't very good  and now my driving leg has to wait awhile and 
rest -- and that is difficult to do == the bone man took a number of xrays 
and said nothing broken, to continue with physio-therapy but not do anything 
that hurts -- see me in 2 weeks, thank you very much!!!   Don't worry --- in 
case you were!! -- I'll be in OK, just a little slower! -- 
Aren't we all thankkful it isn't Colorado this time!  How those people must 
be suffering -- Our niece is an AIS member and she helped in one of the 
gardens last year,  she has her doctorate and  retired early as a counselor 
for that county,(I think)  -- so she's working on that case now -- haven't 
been able to reach her by phone -- and her  mother, ny sister=in=law=  died 
the day of my accident -   So  the Colorado Figge family, wherever they are 
have  their hands 
full.     Rosalie nr Baltimore where we are tired of rain   zone 7
