Great banner Jean!
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.

Nice job of lining up the geraniums, Jean. That's always the challenge. The red always compliments the logo yellow.

Lovey dubby Group hug Thanks for the happy memory. That's one of the Pennsylvania Dutch sayings that my dad loved so much. We had a plaque on the wall. For the light switch in the kitchen, we had one that said, "Outen the lights!" But his all-time favorite was..."throw the cow over the fence some hay". That had him in stitches.

@greene A lot of us here grew up on some of these old sayings, which just says a lot of us on here are old!

My mom was 'old'. She lived to be 100 years old plus 6 months. I hope to achieve a similar age.

Oh, and I see that one of your homes is in DeLand. Mom and Dad retired to DeBary right near you.

@greene Yes. The home in DeLand was my brother's. He was single and had spent most of his life in Japan, Thailand, and Hawaii. After retiring he spent some time in VA with our mother, aunt and uncle, however, that arrangement didn't turn out and he moved to Florida. After he moved there, he built this home and furnished it with lots of the items he had picked up in his travels. Unfortunately another thing he picked up was probably agent orange when he was tramping through the jungles of southeast Asia for his work. As a result, he had COPD. He asked me if he left the house to me and DH would I spend some time there, and I said yes. We try to keep it up and only figure we are caretakers. (long answer to a short statement!)
