First of course.

Poor turtles. Cali is not worthy of its turtles. Imagine! Starving them!

LBD said...

How does this effect the cost of turtle soup?

Lawyerliz said...

Our turtles are protected. So not at all. Humphf

The Dow is down. All T's fault!

Markets closed today.

The Ace Hardware is going to call when the tomato six pack variety plants come in. I am excited. It i so rewarding to be able to dig in soft soil. May have to thin out the xeriscape. The Lavender and poppies are crowding.

Chopped a little sawgrass. Not really in the mood. Trying to figure out my new laptop. So far my problem is Word is different. I can turn it off and on!!! Hub has configured it so it comes up in Word. I can't figure out how to make the font bigger, which is perfectly obvious in my previous version. I thought I had a couple things figured out, but it turns out I didn't remember the buttons I pushed at random. Will there be a point where they don't keep changing Word. It's only a word procesing program!

May the Eostre bunny give you all tasty healthy dark chocolates.

I'll go back to blathering unless someone posts something!

Lawyerliz said...

Well, it was down.

Rob Dawg said...

Not blathering at all. Still, a question. Why are you against using Roundup to kill the sawgrass? Do you think it is a dangerous chemical? Just a personal preference? Glyphosphate does one thing. It disrupts the ability of chlorophyl to create sugars that get sent to the roots. If you don't have chlorophyl you are unaffected. In fact the dish soap emulsifier in the commercial mixture is nastier than the active chemical.

The youngest, the artiste, has made a Cosmic Easter Egg.

you would think that after surviving 20 million years on earth..turtles could handle a couple years of Kali drought..

LBD said...

Cool Easter egg. I am trying to figure out how to transfer a drawing on to my jet ski and then paint it by hand. No Artist here but I cheat. :0

LBD said...

But the jobs it created for the feel good people, priceless!

Mike said...

they are much easier to catch, tag and release than mountain lions..

LBD said...

Great job for seniors who can't land the WalMart greeters job.

But when you're as old as LBD...

Mike said...

I look at that picture of the turtle and three words come to mind..

stone cold killer

Lawyerliz said...

Well I have something nice to say about word. When you make an error you click on it and it makes suggestions. All of which I could choose and usr.

Lawyerliz said...

Giggle. Snort.

Lawyerliz said...

Yes. Also exercise and soothing to rip something out of the ground, that deserves it.

Lawyerliz said...

Use.

Rob Dawg said...

> stone cold killer

Lol!

Don't forget; "We were here 220 million years ago. We will be here 220 million years after you meat sacks are long gone."

Mike said...

they're plotting to ambush Liz in the garden tomorrow as we speak..

I am good at Word. Teacher good. Horrible program. I wonder if Nisus is still available.

Rob Dawg said...

SyFy made for TV movie; "Terror of the Terrapin."

Mike said...

anything that can live in the wild in excess of 100 years is not to be underestimated..

EngineerJim said...

They should make new homes for those turtles at $250K each -- like they did for the turtles displaced by the Ivanpah solar plant construction.

Mike said...

current Zestimate...$350K

Lawyerliz said...

Rob Dawg said...

Bid the turtles a fond farewell. A real econ post is up.

LBD said...

OLD! yep and it's Old & Bold! Remember the Obamacare add pointed at the youth Go climb a rock jump off a mountain, your insured with Obummercare! I got MediScare! Time to take that risk you paid a life for. :)

Lawyerliz said...

Up another hundred.

Lawyerliz said...

I know. Part of their algorithm is to count turtles.
