cal's people are home for the SUMMER!!!

so you probably remember the Quail family? They are what we call "Cal's people" because he always got a chuckle out of them with their little bob-heads waving madly as they frantically run in front of us yelling "watch out! watch out! don't hit us!!!" So once I made the mistake of telling one i thought him to be "cute" and he was SO offended..."CUTE?" he snorted..."CUTE she says!!! well I NEVER" and he turned to the missus, "let's go, the little missy calls us CUTE and here we are just sent to WATCH her!" so i apologize profusely and was forgiven on the spot...we still call them Cal's people and today we saw them again in That Place where we go to Do Work and they ran us in with greetings and hugs...so to speak:-)
sonny's spider Nicto (there's even MORE of a story to her than you KNOW) has overed on our purple flower tub...we planted a tall purple plant neither of us know the name and some pansies and Nicto claimed it today with a delicate lacy but oh so present web...she turned her nose up at the tomatoes and completely ignores the rest of my little garden...
my little garden is REALLY little which i must tell you is quite disillusioning from the time I spent digging it...
today we took the movie over to Lydia who is my garden guru and told her about Nicto and she gave me some PEPPERMINT which i may as well tell you i believe to have mystical fresh powers of its own...i think really that the Rain Woman uses it to mist her hair with and that sometimes even the Sun Auntie sprays it over the Spring as a fresh cleansing Wash.
that's what i think anyway:-)
so Spring is here...the sunflowers are cheerfully greeting us against the rich green carpet of young wheat...the sun was kissing the dancers our hills on the forehead as we drove through the early evening today and they were twirling gracefully with the clouds adorning their hair...
yup...Spring
