    Faye: The place that makes the ice cream is Ye Old Grog Distillery, in St Helens, OR. They mostly sell alcoholic beverages such as Grog. Ice cream is a fun sideline as far as I can tell. I bought my alcohol ice cream at a local grocery store. :smiley:

    Debbie: Barbie usually sets a new page before she heads off to rest. It may be there already. I haven’t checked yet. :star:

    Have a good rest. See you in September. :wink:

    Altruistic August
    31: emailed action for happiness September calendar to Barb

    Joe’s pressure still in the 40’s even after double dose rx. Scheduled for second surgery Thursday to “install a straw that will hurt like hell for 6 weeks. When it heals it will dissolve and eye pressure can drain. Possible won’t drain enough or will drain too much with no plan B if that happens. 50% chance of success.” Joe has a great attitude, joking about an eye patch and a white cane, grateful for his good left eye even though it needs cataract surgery. I’m so thankful he’s talking to me, and not keeping it all inside. He’s even mentioned that we should think about making a will, something he’s resisted mightily whenever I brought it up.

    Margaret ((hugs)) hoping you find all the grace you need.
    KJ OMG Joaquin and Miguel :love:
    SuziQ and Barbie ditto your “wherever you go… there you are” advice to Allie.
    Karen in VA oh that impish Lily belle. Any recent Olivia pics?
    Katla likewise ditto your “time to take care of yourself” to Allie. Yarbro’s vampire novels are more historical, following the Compte from ancient to present times in many different places (Egypt, China, France…) That ice cream sounds delish!
    Tracey even a mild winter where you live would be tough to me. ;)
    Meg I can hear the joy in your post. So happy for you.
    Welcome back @mafery Mary. Be sure to watch for Barbie’s link to the September thread.
    Pip :love: the neon bike. Amazed you were able to find someone to repair it so perfectly! Those doggy treats sound yummy!
    Kim, thanks! We have several dry sandy sunny spots that are pretty bare. Hope they’re sandy enough to make digging easier. Our hoses won’t reach that far, hope the fall and winter rains will be enough.
    Yvonne “a shower of oak leaf mites” Oh noooo! :noway: Poor Philip! :sick:

    Raking the area around the transplanted fuschia, found OH NO another 36 bulbs. Texted a friend and asked her how many dozen amaryllis belladonna bulbs she wanted, but she didn’t bite.
    The little 2’x3’ area before

    The bulbs dug up yesterday

    Today’s harvest on black plastic. I really didn't want to dig THAT many holes!

    And done!

    Lighter, lovelies!

    Katla My preference is Faye but Della is fine. My mother always called me Della Faye. I noticed you have me as Delia. I keep hearing Tom Jones singing Delia. No problem as I know who you are addressing, but Faye is what most call me. Thanks for the ice cream name. Is it the same as Two Birds ice cream? I searched it and it isn't available outside of PDX.

    I had an aunt whose name was Freda Fay and she always went by Fay- Miss her and all the other aunts and uncles- Dad is one of 10 and now there are just one sister( Lennabell who goes by Lynn) and my dad.
