I've been quiet today because it's been a busy time ..... the first of the month we have to get out invoices and do payroll plus tying up the previous month. But I've been keeping an eye on y'all ... LOL! ..... I lurk at such times but don't have time to post.

Btw, I'd love your recipe for peach cobbler.

My folks had a nectarine tree while I was growing up. My mother figured out more ways to make desserts using nectarines than I've seen before or since!

At one time I had three peach trees in my yard - the one tree gave peaches so big you had to use both hands to eat them. Two would make a pie!

I also had a mature apricot tree which gave neither blooms nor fruit for about three years. My neighbor at the time came over and walked around it several times in one direction, and several times in the other direction. She leaned up against the tree, looked at me and said: "It needs iron." She retrieved some nails from her garage and buried them around the base of the trunk. The next year I had apricots like you wouldn't believe! It doesn't seem like summer unless I can have peaches with my cereal in the morning. :)

I love nectarines too. My grandfather used to grow the best ones, but the tree died the summer after he did. Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories.

Just what kind of special powers does your neighbor have? ..... LOL!

In the South people grow a lot more yellow squash than zuchini (sp?) ..... but it has the same habits. If you have more than one or two plants, you're going to have people running from you screaming because they figure you're trying to pawn more squash off on them ..... LOL!

Sounds yummy!!! But I sure can't imagine it with canned peaches! I like them but they are an entirely different food than fresh peaches.

When we lived in eastern NC, we used to have a garden and I did a lot of canning and freezing. But when we moved here, our lives changed drastically and we don't have the time for the gardening ...... and I don't even have room for a freezer in this house ..... :-(

I sure miss having all the fresh veggies and love hearing y'all talk about it. There's no better eating than veggies picked out of your garden and prepared fresh the same day!

Thanks for the recipe!

I freeze extra peaches from my dad's tree, and use them in this recipe. In a pinch, the canned peaches will do. In the deepest darkest days of winter, canned peaches will do.

We live very near one of the biggest peach-growing areas in the whole SE United States. Even with what little bit of freezer space I have, I usually manage to freeze a few packages of peaches. I usually freeze them with some sugar already on them ..... that way, they're ready to go for recipes as soon as they thaw out.

You've hit another one out of the ball park, Luis. A very touching essay this time ..... I hope that we are seeing the beginnings of the rehabilitation of our country so that soon we will be standing tall and proud again in the eyes of the whole world!

That neighbor claimed to be psychic. I have stories about her that would keep you in stitches for hours. But she had a great love for all living things, and taught me a lot about patience and friendship.

Thanks for the recipe! It will be served with dinner one day this week-end. Of course, the main course will be Zucchini Something or Other, LOL! Grandpashy spent quite a few years in the south, and one of his favorite meals is fried yellow crook-necks and sliced tomatoes.

Going to venture out to see what's happening on some of the other threads.

I won't be here til late tomorrow ...... I've got some appointments and things to do most of the day. I just got an email, though, that I want to share so I'll go ahead and post it tonight and maybe some of you will see it besides us late night folks.

Twenty Things Worth Noting

1. The best way to get even is to forget...
2. Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death...
3. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts...
4. Some folks wear their halos much too tight...
5. Some marriages are made in heaven, but they ALL have to be maintained on earth...
6. Unless you can create the WHOLE universe in 5 days, Then perhaps giving "advice" to God, isn't a good idea!
7. Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, and faith looks up...
8. Standing in the middle of the road is dangerous. You will get knocked down by the traffic from both ways.
9. Words are windows to the heart.
10. A skeptic is a person who when he sees the handwriting on the wall, claims it's a forgery.
11. It isn't difficult to make a mountain out of a molehill, just add a little dirt.
12. A successful marriage isn't finding the right person --it's being the right person.
13. The mighty oak tree was once a little nut that held its ground.
14. Too many people offer God prayers, with claw marks all over them.
15. The tongue must be heavy indeed, because so few people can hold it.
16. To forgive is to set the prisoner free, and then discover the prisoner was you.
17. You have to wonder about humans, they think God is dead and Elvis is alive!
18. It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.
19. You'll notice that a turtle only makes progress when it sticks out its neck...
20. If the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, you can bet the water bill is higher.

Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death.
