I was actually looking at the acorns I still have around (I'm my mothers guardian. My father died when I was 15 falling from a ladder. And I fell off a ladder onto a conveyor line leaving me disabled in many ways, and yearly growing aches and pains. I'm also being checked for Lupus which runs in my family, and my growing tremor, which could be Parkinson).

One the greatest joys I have found is working in my garden, and while I'm not an expert and have limited abilities, I love watching my mom (now 80) see what I have planted bloom (this year I'm letting my vegetable garden soil rest, and I am going to try hanging baskets for Tomato, pole beans, cucumbers and maybe even squash.

I was actually looking to send them...but then I read what others said about "buying" them?

I'd love to win something nice for my mom, and we are looking to downsize (move) to a much smaller house (she has lived at the same residence for over 47 years).

Anyways, maybe someone here can explain the "acorns."

I sure wish you'd change it the gumballs....I've got a couple of hundred (at least) that my mom almost fell when she stepped on one today (lucky I was watching her).

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
