Tomatoes

I am excited to be living in Alaska and we have loved everything about it so far. So aside from the distance from all ya'll, the only downside I can see is that my favorite food will be hard to come by. Oh they sell the regular old chemically ripened tomatoes we all survive on through the winter, but apparently it will never get hot enough for long enough to sustain a beautiful tomato plant. So my sweet mom, knowing this, sent me six tomatoes and three jars of homemade tomato juice way up here for my birthday. It was awesome. It cost $31.00 to send. Me and Mike savored every slice of those juicy tomatoes. Here is my present in all its glory.

I love it!! Trav and I considered a program up there for about 10 minutes. Too cold for me. But you are a much better trooper than I am.

Nothing like a home grown tomato!! Looks like our cute blog template didn't last long! I looked at pyzam and almost chose a new template like your new one!!-Great minds think alike!

Mags! I'm so glad you started a blog! I have had so many people contact me in the past few weeks and I love it! Your kids are so big! And so well behaved! Cute Quinton! Doesn't it make you excited when they set such a great example? (Whether or not it gets followed!)

Hey Maggie,
I am loving blogging. Now I can keep in touch with friends I may never cross paths with again. Enjoy Alaska. Growing up I lived there for 4 years. My brother and a sister were born there. Keep blogging. Missing yu here in Kentucky. You know the leaves are on fire with beauty.
