These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

My Red Neck is Showing

.
Wanna see a redneck flowerpot?





Ahh, duct tape! The quintessential household tool!

I noticed that one of my petunias was MIA, and I was getting rather upset with the thought that someone had stolen it! Here, in my little Eden where I don't even lock the door most of the time!! After a few minutes of stewing like a goose in a pot, I realized that it might have fallen down, and surely enough, there it was, about 8 feet down. When I retrieved it, I found that the pot was badly split. I don't have another that big, so I taped till tomorrow when I can run to town and get a new pot.

At least I live where no one will see it and judge me.

Whew. That was my biggest worry, what people would think!

  4. Ruth, your hub is spot on! Good second level "tools" are super glue, liquid nails, graphite powder, and heavy duty clear plastic tape (which holds together almost any plastic). Obviously, I'll try anything!! LOL!

  5. You know, it'll actually look good, I think, if you cover the entire pot with duct tape. Then at least you'll be a creative red neck!
