Dear Patty ~~ They were not stolen by you, I have told you to post anything you like.
Thanks for your comments and the little dog angel was very popular.
Glad you liked the picture of my Mother and two of her sisters.
The very best for tomorrow Patty.
I will be thinking of you and saying a little prayer. Have a good rest after the operation, Don't rush back. We will be here when you are ready. I am fine after my fall, I was lucky.
I hope you get a decent night's sleep Wed night my friend.
Love, Merle.

Nice garden quotes. The one about gardens requiring a lot of water etc. is sooo true.

But reading Merle's comment now has me worried. You are getting an operation tomorrow? I hope it goes well, Patty. I'll be sending thoughts and prayers your way.
