I’m looking for a sideline business of some sort, something to bring in a few extra bucks. So I says to myself, I says, what could be simpler than coming up with nifty ideas for tee-shirts and selling them for a few bucks more than I paid for them? Here’s a photo of my first effort.
The tee-shirts are made from organic cotton, primary color is a forest green with white text reading “HEAL THE EARTH/ONE GARDEN AT A TIME” and the sprinkler can icon is orange. Cost is $20 + $3.00 USPS postage within the continental US. I can be reached through this blog or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Adult sizes S, M, L, XL and 2X. I would be most grateful if you would forward a link for this post to anyone you think might be interested. The shirts are also available at Abbott’s Nursery in Ann Arbor and at A Studio in beautiful downtown Good Hart, MI.
A wonderful year for small tomatoes – the Romas and cherry tomatoes are doing well – but not a banner year for the big tomatoes we dream about in February . . . slow to ripen, split skins, low yields. I was excited about my cauliflower until a herd of beavers devoured all the plants. OK, it was probably rabbits but the devastation was so complete it looked like the damage could have been done by beavers . . . or a grizzly bear.
ABSTINENCE MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER
I haven’t had a sip of alcohol in nearly 4 weeks and I feel great. It was time for a break . . . that’s all I’ll say. I’ve lost some weight, too.
SCANDINAVIAN DETECTIVE NOVELS: who’da thunk it?
Got hooked on “The Girl Who . . . ” series and have discovered there is a whole genre of Scandinavian detective novels translated into English. I’m reading one of the Kurt Wallander novels by Henning Mankell now and looking forward to a book by a Norwegian named Jo Nesbo.
AND SPEAKING OF DETECTIVE NOVELS
I’m plugging away after a year or two of accomplishing very little with my writing . . . working title “Who Killed Bobby Blue?” . . . my Cleveland friends may recognize the rhyme.
UNTIL THE GRASSFEED BEEF IS BACK IN THE FREEZER . . .
I’m going to post some of my mother’s memoir here. If there were any justice in the world it would be a bestseller and she would have been on the Oprah show, but whoever said life was fair?
