(Melva broke her arm and went to the doctor this morning after sending me a c-mail and asking me to post this message from her. She apparently forgot about the hours I keep. I worked late and just got up now, so with apologies to Melva for the long delay, here's her message):

What does Amazon call it, when you pre-buy a book that hasn't been published yet?
Same with roses: $25 now and 4 roses in fall 2011

Teas, noisettes, gallicas, chinas. Will try to send what you want.
I have a nice collection of roses.

Well, I'd like to see a list, but I would have to wait on planting until spring 2012.

Oh, yuk. Shoulder surgery.... No fun at all, Melva.

Can't you dictate the list to Karen and have her type it?

I am better, thanks..took my first 'real' bath today. Getting out of the tub was very scary! Had to use my right arm..didn't hurt, but there is nothing there...no strength at all. No plans to repeat that experience, back to showers for a few more weeks. Too bad, as I love my baths.

What a shame! I'd also be lost without my baths. It gets you out of doing housework, though, doesn't it?

What luck (wrong thing to say, but it's true). I had both feet in casts (right foot in "real" plaster cast, left foot in "walking" cast) years ago ('03) due to ripping both Achilles' heels (fell down flight of stairs while moving 2 years previous). Only thing it got me out of was driving.. still had to work & everything.
