What a Dump

I do wish someone at my IP would read my blog and then they would understand. My life line (tv and internet line) drops from the street waaay behind me, and it is a big long drop. My telephone line is tacked to a tree too! What a dump! ~ It isn't really I just wanted to say that snotty Bette Davis line....
During our raging winter rain storms that sweep right off the ocean into my life, that line often gets knocked down. So while everyone else gets their service back....I sit and gnash and snarl. Wah, wah, poor me, no one understands that my line is down on the ground and they don't fix it for days and years and eons!
I must water the yard I guess, I am told that this will help the plants live. You see, I grew up in Washington and the only time we ever, ever watered was usually in August or whenever it got warm enough to run through the sprinkler. Watering is not in my genes. And I'm not expecting any raging winter rain storms soon....

Hello Beach Lady,
Came onto your blog through wordimperfect and really glad I did.
Please tell me about your grandchildren.
I have one little grandson who is seven months old. My son Jack is married to a Japanese lady called Miki and they live in Tokyo, so I don't see him very often. I went over there when he was six weeks old, and they came here for June. Saving hard again for my next air ticket!
I am also a potter! It's so nice to meet another one.
Love Lorenzo.

Hey, what wonderful names your grandchildren have. My little grandson is called Allan, which is a family name, and not very Japanese, especially as the Japanese cannot pronounce the letter 'l'!
Love Lorenzo.

well, I saw your blog and I am asking about your grandchildren, as requested.
I only have grandhorses, grandkitties and a granddog so far... but I keep hoping.

Hello! Thanks for the comment! I hate watering, which is why I'm so fond of succulents!
