. . . and Heeeeere's CAYDEN . . .

Big Announcement

Cappy and Ollie's human nephew, Cayden was born on November 7, 2010 at 6:19 am.   20 3/4 " tall, weighed in at 7 lbs. 13 oz. and is a real Cutie Patootie.  He's absolutely perfect from his nose to his toes and to his little *whoop de doo*.

Great sleeper

 Here's proud, tired Grandma who looks like she was in labor herself.  There is nothing like spending the night in a hospital waiting room.

Mom and baby are doing fine.  Homecoming is tomorrow.

MIA for Awhile

Hi Everyone. Once again, I will be transferring  my blog to my nephew Nova for a couple of weeks and leave it in his capable (?) paws.  My assistant is in Michigan with Lauren who should be giving Ollie and me a nephew soon.

In the meantime, I've posted a picture for Teddy Bear of OUR harvest - just a handful of minuscule green tomatoes. Farmers of America (and of the world) can rest at night knowing that Mom is definitely not in competition with them.

How sad !

On the positive side, Mom has a green thumb when it comes to growing jade plants. A no-brainer. Just prune a branch, stick it in the soil and it self-roots. Since the plant is a succulent, it's water-retaining and adapts to arid soil.

There's also a dragon plant and some begonias in the photo which are surprisingly thriving.

Can't get any easier than that.

Hopefully, I'll still be checking everyone's blogs and adding my comments.

Have a great weekend everyone !!!
