The Thing I Said I was Gonna Talk About...
I'm not too sure on what this little plant is...it looks similar to my Raspberries, but to me looks more like a Blackberry "bush"! We don't have anyone anywhere near us that has Blackberries, or any other kind of berry, so I have no idea where this might have even come from!
Anywho, two to three feet to my left is the "pit" where I planted the Raspberries. I've talked about this space before...when we moved into the house, there was a smallish water feature style pond there. It was gross and did nothing for us except breed Mosquitoes and kill a bird. After the bird drowned in it, I pulled that water out by the bucket load and pulled the black plastic liner out of the pit dug specially for the water feature. Since then, in the last two years we have had a big, ugly hole in our hill in the middle of our backyard. So, this Spring, I dumped 3 large bags of soil into the hole and planted 4 Raspberry bushes in it, 3 have survived and from those three, one has been doing great. Long, run on story short, I moved to take a photo of that Raspberry bush. As I leaned over the rock lined pit, the phone slipped from my hand and landed face down on a flat rock that was no more than 2 inches away when it slipped. When I picked it up and flipped it over though...well, let's just say I was not happy!
One thing that really annoyed me (the whole situation annoyed me, but) was when the gal working asked me why I couldn't just use it as-is until I got a replacement phone...shattered glass, with little shards falling out of the touch screen cell phone...I wonder! It does have a slide out keyboard that can apparently be used to navigate as well, but I really doubt I would have been able to get that beauty through airport security, lol.
For my trip yesterday, I had to take two batteries for the phone and a car charger...I burned through both batteries and had recharged both batteries during the day. I got home with less than 20% on the "fourth" battery of the day. I will be very happy once FedEx gets here with my phone today...
Well, I think I only got side tracked a few times there...hope everyone else can read or at least understand part of it!
