I had one that I didn't divide for 5 years (big mistake) and I got 37 plants off it. Left a crater in the flower bed about 3 foot across (it was a larger sized one) Oki came home and there I was, with 3 kids and a dog, trying to get this monster out of the ground..... Yep, I am quite the hostage to my hostas....but I do enjoy them.....

aha, so if you don't tend to them and divide them THEN they hold you hostage ... that's where they get that meaning! Got it ... it's very pretty otherwise ... and the hummingbirds hanging around must be a very pretty sight! How nice ... so a perennial must be like my lantana, purple jew plants, spring lily ... they die with the once a year freeze but they keep coming back?... okie dokie ... I learned something ... I'm a tomboy but not really the gardening type although I do have some hard to injure plants inside, LOL ... Thanks for the lesson ... Good to know,*wink*... I know you enjoy your yard and garden ... you can sure can some goods and I enjoy them every year ... especially my bread and butter pickles ... my favorite ...

Oh, Fishman ... I woke up in the middle of the night in the recliner ... disoriented, didn't know if it was day or night, wondering why I was in the recliner ... looked on my desk, found notes of Keith/Mick ~ Letterman and it came to me that I was going to watch the Top Ten and go to bed ... Never made it ... but I can pull up CBS.com and watch it after I read this thread ... Thanks for reminding me ... Good day to you ... FC <3 ...
That makes me think of my mom for some reason (she's not with us now).
She liked the night and would stay up and watch Johnny Carson every night.
I liked Johnny, but couldn't stay up, even around Jr High age.
Red's Night Owl fits me good with the time difference. I can go to bed at 8 and be a "Night Owl" here. lol

Glad I was able to help. And yes, bread and butter pickles are the best in Oki's opinion too. He loves my bread and butter pickles. Rotor's, of course, is BBJ, as it is with Paisley and hubby. I think Hippi prefers the red plum. lol. I just enjoy making it.

Good morning, pretty one! Thank goodness because I don't like cooked tomatoes!!!... Not in pizza, spaghetti, pasta with the red stuff in it, meat loaf with the red stuff in it (brown gravy will work, though;) but I LOVE a regular old tomato with salt and lemon pepper on a sandwich or just a plain old vanilla tomato with salt and pepper on it ... GREAT, now I can polish off the rest of the Bread and Butter pickles today, LOL ... In the meantime, I've had the best p-nut butter and jelly sandwiches ... Have a great day ...

Hugs, Hearts and guarded jelly jars ...

Hi Night Owls.
At risk of sounding kind of preachy, thought I'd share this-

With the Holidays upon us I would like to share a personal experience with my friends about drinking and driving. As you may know some of us have been known to have brushes with the authorities from time to time on the way home after a "social session" out with friends.

Well two days ago I was out for an evening with friends and had several cocktails followed by some rather nice red wine. Feeling jolly I still had the sense to know that I may be slightly over the limit. That's when I did something that I've never done before - I took a cab home. Sure enough on the way home there was a police road block but since it was a cab they waved it past.

I arrived home safely without incident. This was a real surprise as I had never driven a cab before, I don't know where I got it and now that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it.

(from my email this morning- lol)
