Highlight: Please observe the featured graphic for today. This was a distress call from my wonderful, devoted, and beautiful daughter. This might as well have been the Bat signal on the clouds above Gotham City. I am married to a mom. This was a distress call from her daughter. Perhaps it took all of 30 seconds, but sweet wife had made her phone calls, packed her bags, started giving me my instructions, and was mapping the most expeditious route to daughter’s house.
We were up at 4:00 AM. I received my instructions on how to care for Mr. Monte for the second or perhaps third time. Then we were on the road. I felt an urgency and impatience from the passenger side of the car – “Step on it!” “Keep up with traffic!” “No, let traffic keep up with you!”
Finally, we arrived at dear daughter’s house. I dutifully carried in the bags and left wife and daughter. – – – – It wasn’t long and my cell phone was receiving messages from daughter. With each email there was another picture of beautiful wife playing with precious granddaughter.
Now, all of this is fine with me. Wives, mothers, and granddaughters, they all deserve a chance to be together. But, there was one big problem – beautiful spouse raided our okra cache and left me with nothing. She had the gall to take “my” okra and cooked it for daughter. —– There is no justice!
Okay, I will chill – – there’s more okra in the garden and family always comes first!
Weather: The period started out dry. Heavy thunderstorms and showers came into the picture on 15, 16, and 17 July. No need to water now. Of course, there must be something to complain about and the increase in humidity over the last three days is that something.

Harvest: Virtually every evening meal now features one or two things from the vegetable garden. And, when it’s fresh and properly ripened, it all tastes so much better.
