    Dreary, rainy day here in Irvine, hoping to get out to plant the Little John azaleas I got on Thursday then putter a tad in my little garden. Biggest game of the year on tap today, beating Dayton would get Billy's kids into the Final Four but it is tough to beat a good team riding a wave of upsets and full of confidence, I believe we will win but it could easily be a nail biter.

    Verti do you have any interest in gardening or landscaping? I do both and find a great deal of satisfaction in each hobby.

    we have this yard. lol. when we bought it,part of it's charm was 'parklike setting'. while i was working, and driving to my job 400 miles a week, and the husband was working at the nashville v.a., driving about the same each week (he has a longer drive, but 12 hr shifts so he doesn't drive 5 days a week. anyhow, we were exhausted on the weekends. so usually in the spring, we get landscapers to come out here and mulch and trim, etc etc.
    day before yesterday, we were discussing having the landscapers come again, and from then on picking up the slack. i've planted some new bulbs this past fall. i think the bulbs are my favorite.

    blah uk. :)

    I'm nervous if we wind up facing them again. 4x in a season is a tall order.

    Mornin' Pubsters!

    oh if they play each other, we've not had to deal with that. except that one time we down to see the gators (with the o'fours) play uk on senior day. of course we won.
    but this has never happened....both of 'em in the final four? don't know how we're gonna deal with them being in a final together, should that happen. i'm sure we'll utilize different rooms here at the house.
