    Those big candles last well, Maybe 5" by 5". They really last as opposed to the normal candles.

    Cool

    Oh no, there is a black cat lying across my lap, and she's punching and purring. She must know it's Friday 13th!!! I'll be extra nice to her today, but keep an eye on her every move.

    Sam, you already had turkey and....uh....coming right up!

    I think that if it's you belong to the black cat, there's no problem. An unfamiliar black cat crossing your path might be another story.

    Cool

    Whew, that's a relief. We have just been in the bed so far today, watching TV, and don't expect that to change much. I still need to fix a meal, and my brother will call later which gives me a chance to take a "cat nap" too.

    One a day for me, but one of MANY for Sam. Cats have it made, or at least the cats I've ever known.

    Exciting for me, two new African violets arrived by mail yesterday:



    Um, they don't look quite like that yet but I'm hoping. They're semi-miniatures and so will never get very big. The blue one isn't blooming and the other one has a few blooms on it.

    Cool

    My Granny grew those on a shelf right across the big picture window at the front of her house. I got none of her green thumb. Plants call me Doctor Death.

    They probably call me Doctor Death too or maybe Nurse Ratched.

    The two African violets I've had for years have pretty much had it. One is gone (mealybugs) and I'm nursing the other along with daily alcohol swabs and rinsings. It will need to be kept apart from the new plants.

    I've been tending to a few African violets for over 30 years. Some were ordered from special violet growers, some were picked up at supermarkets, and quite a few spawned additional violets just from cuttings in water.

    I don't really know what I'm doing, but I really like African violets.

    They have those fuzzy leaves, don't they? She also started cuttings, and grew those in the kitchen window.

    Some do have fuzzy leaves, and then there are some with ruffly leaves, shiny leaves, variegated leaves. They can do well in windows if the light is right.

    Since I face north, the light in the windows isn't right, and so they need special lighting arrangements. They're a bit fussy but at least I haven't yet been tempted to try bonsai.

    Those tiny trees have to be watered several times a day and shaped and fretted over. African violets just bloom on and on if you give them the right conditions.
