Riverton, Utah                 High 75 Low 52

Cindy and I have kept busy working in the garden. We decided to put down weed barrier and then cover it with rocks around our apple trees. We have the most cherries we have ever had on our cherry tree. I don't know why, but usually the birds have them stripped by now and all we get are pits hanging on the tree, while this year the cherries are almost ripe. I have watched some birds feasting on the cherries but not as many birds as usual. Maybe we will get some this year.

We are still going to a u-pick cherry orchard next week and hopefully we get some of our own.

On a more somber note my sister, Kathy, is still in the hospital and doesn't seem to be getting any better. Then this morning we got a text saying that my brother, Wes, is in the intensive care unit at the hospital and probably won't last the day. He is my next younger brother. Seven years ago he had a stroke which left him paralyzed on the left side. He hasn't been well enough for me to go see him since we have been home (in Utah). They found out he has prostate cancer that spread to his kidneys causing them to shut down. We went to the hospital to see him today and he isn't doing well at all. My sister-in-law is not doing well either but that's to be expected.

Thanks for visiting. 


  1. Nice that your cherries are doing well this year.Prayers for your sister and brother always sad to see these things happen

  2. This has been a really sad year for your family. I'm so sorry to hear this.

  3. Oh dear ... I'm so sorry to hear about your brother and sister-in-law. Prayers to them and to you and Cindy.
