Re: Happy Birthday Kathy

Well I am glad to hear you got the straw/hay.  I know they use it around here
to trap anything so it will not be released into the waterways during all
kindsa construction...or so I have been told.  I thought it was kinda of a
large marker for the big earth moving equipment, but what do I know...
Don't be like my mother and wait too long for the knee replacement.  If you
need it, well.... but you are right, knee replacement has a longer recovery
period till you are able to do everything easily.  If possible, go directly
from the hospital to a rehab center.  They know how to help you in the
beginning as well as all the PT you get there will make the process so much
easier and quicker.  With my mother, it made it much easier on me as well.  I
visit her daily, but don't have to argue with her about doing this or that.

Donna, Thanks so much for the b'day wishes. Don't know how you always
remember such things when you have so much on your plate. How do you work full
and also look after your mother full time?? And there's always the house,
garden, etc. to do. You must have been glad to see the hard freeze that meant
you could quit worrying about the gardens for awhile. I have to share with you

the most exciting Xmas present. You may know that a major gas pipeline is
being  routed thru IL. In the construction of the ditches they are using
quantities of  wheat straw to control erosion I assume. When they are done
they have to  remove it and have been delivering it to our property. I now

enough straw  to cover a vast area and what I can't use will decompose into

wonderful stuff.  Sure beats paying $4-5 a bale and lifting it into and out
Just gave myself a sort of b'day present and rescheduled knee replacement
surgery from Feb to Sept. Now I can worry about it for a much longer time! I
 afraid I might not be able to do my landscaping work by April if I went
ahead  with the Feb date. And I still have a lot of inventory to sell in the
spring.  Can't really afford to not work this spring as retirement money is
half  what it was. Guess I should be grateful there is still some left. Kathy
