Max loves flowers

Hello and welcome back to the wonderful world of the Dogpound.  I do not remember if I mentioned it or not. I have a rogue flower in my flower bed.  Not just a flower, but a really big flower.  I noticed something growing in my Hydrangea bush, and at first I was going to cut it out, but the stock was so thick I decided to let it grow a bit to see what it would turn out to be.  It kept growing and growing till it was taller than me and with some research I found out it was a sunflower.  No idea how the sunflower seed got there but it grew like it belonged.  Not only was it a sunflower but it was not one of those regular yellow sunflowers, this one was a pretty burnt red, black and yellow color.  Not only was the color unique it also had multiple flower buds.  Usually you see a sunflower that has one large flower head, this one has at least 20 plus buds, with about six on the top and the rest scattered throughout the stalk.  Kind of excited about my new adopted flower and I hope to be able to save some seeds, so I can try to grow some next year.  While that is a success story, I am struggling a bit with my Morning Glories that I have planted all along my porch supports.   It is not that they are not growing…they are growing nicely up the lattice, but the deer seem to have other ideas.  They come up at night and eat the leaves. They do not touch those on the ground or at the very top….they eat all the middle ones, leaving my poor Morning Glories with a Mohawk kind of look.  Not good.  LOL

Three men went to Mexico together on a vacation. They had known each other in high school, and they were eager to get to know each other again. One night, they went out on the town and got completely drunk. When they woke up the next morning, they were in a jail cell. They asked the guard why they were there. He replied, “Last night the three of you killed an old man. You will be executed at noon.” Of course, none of them believed this. They begged and pleaded with their jailer, and even offered him substantial bribes if he would just let them go. But, he stood firm, and the jail door stayed shut. The hour came. They all ate their last meal and were herded into the room where the electric chair sat. The first man was strapped into the chair and was asked for his last words. He said, “Well, I’m a theologian from Harvard Divinity School, and I believe in the power of God to intervene on behalf of the innocent.” The executioner threw the switch, but nothing happened. He immediately thought, “God must be on this man’s side.” So he let him go. The second man was strapped in, and he was asked for his last words. He responded, “I’m a lawyer from Yale Law School, and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on behalf of the innocent.” The switch was thrown, but again, nothing happened. The executioner figured that justice must be on this man’s side, and he let him go. Finally, the third man was strapped into the chair and was asked for his last words. “Well, I’m an electrical engineer from MIT, and nothing’s going to happen if you don’t connect those two wires right there...”

That is a wrap.  As always be good, play safe, and remember you reap what you sow  

JR and Max
