    I'm close...I wouldn't say it'll be a big order, but I can't wait much longer...it's still just a little too cold to chance it here

    Happy Easter everybody!!!

    TPBM - has no life, yet still has no time...so hires a painter to come in and finish the painting you have neither the time nor desire to do yourself after starting 4 years ago!!! SAD

    False Rick, no painting going on from either myself or from hired help. Although whether or not I have a life is subject to debate!! [And don't look at it as sad, you're getting it done one way or another. Now that's an accomplishment..... :-D]

    TPBM just destroyed/killed an exam they were worried about not doing well on.

    I wouldn't say destroye/killed, but ended up doing okay in my sadistics (um...I mean statistics) class that was causing a lot of grief.

    TPBM needs to think about repotting orchids soon.

    False, but one in spike.

    TPBM went to regional judging yesterday and got invited to score a plant along with the real judges and came in close to the final score of the award .

    False. Spent the weekend with a crowd of high school students. Judging would be interesting to get into, but I do not have the time for the commitment it would require.

    TPBM really hates doing their taxes.

    True & False...that's why "I have people"...wouldn't dare to do my own anymore.

    TPBM - has chronic back issues...but also figures, if I wake up in the monring and I don't hurt somewhere, I must be dead

    False and True. I don't have a back problem but I have problem with my right shoulder caused by a bad fall while pruning the branches of a tree year ago. However feeling much better now after sessions with physio and doing light exercise.

    True re the second part.

    TPBM is planning a fishing trip to get away from orchids for a while.

    False, although my actions might belie it.
    Although I tell myself that I never plan trips to get away from orchids, I did choose to volunteer at a sailing camp this weekend (running one of four Boston whaler chase boats to corral teenage sailors in sunfish). Although I was not fishing, I was on the water (Upper Galveston Bay). Had I not been on the water, I might have been at home repotting or rebasketing plants that truly deserve my attention.

    TPBM has strongly considered trying to grow a stanhopea.
