thanks to herrad and lucy


thankyou herrad for this award, and also lucy,who has choosen me as one of her 5. now i am supposed to pick 5 blogs,pass it on,etc. well,i'm not. because i cant pick just 5.so,every reader of my blog,feel free to snag.if i read your blog,it is because i enjoy your writing,yes i have favourites,jane,indigo,lucy,jeannette,jan,yasmin et al.but i am not going to say,these 5 are better than those,this blog deserves this award,that one doesnt.because anyone who sits down and writes a journal,deserves an award for sheer courage.it is scary to have to fill that empty page.
many thanks for all the positive comments and emails about my last entry.needed getting off my chest.got a new camera,so as soon as i work out how to use it i will post some pics of the garden,which is growing away,i had to dig up a boarder of day lillies last week,they had taken over.new plants now make the boarder look halfway cared for.take care all.

Herrad said...

Hi Mort,

Excellent solution.
Love,
Herrad

ps I do not think anyone is better than anyone else see it more of a chance to highlight blogs that may not be known to all.
That is my motivation.
In fact like you they are all my favourites.

Lucy said...

I wish I would have done that Mort. It weas to detailed and I already got in trouble with one of my bloggers for picking her. She is feeling overwhelmed and I know I am. I have an idea, Mort , ship your car to us. Said a prayer for my tomatoe plant and may it R.I.P. Sorry about the petunias. Big hugs from Lucy

Rain said...

Congrats on the award Mort! I know how you feel about choosing the blogs, they're all inspiring in their own way aren't they? I'm looking forward to seeing your perspective of life through your photos.

Came over to see if you or anyone has heard from Jun (Jun-Midnight)
I am just praying her computer is down and not her.
Congrats on your award.
A lot of plants have that knack of taking over.Funny we plant in hopes of something pretty then they take over everything else,LOL.
Take care...

Hi Mort,

congrats on your award, I too find it hard to pick the `best` journals when there are so many out there.

Hugs

You still live with your mother? You poor, fat fuck. No wonder this stupid "honor" means so much to you.

Lucy said...

People, if you can call them that, who is such a coward as to write annonymous should crawl back in the hole they came out of.

Hey Mort, Congrats! Read up on some past entries that you wrote. Sometimes it is good to free yourself of things. Let's just hope that your mom's memory loss doesn't progress quickly. Maybe the noticeable loss will stablize at a certain point. It's hard to see, I know. Got a question for you. Can you reverse the damage done to spraying leeland cypress tress with volck oil that is turning the branches brown?

Beth said...

Ohhhh, I thought you meant that you "got" my Anonymous, as in "Gotcha!" But you literally got one of your own! If you want to find out how to track them, email me and I'll let you know. I'll never understand the mentality (or lack thereof) of someone who writes such things. It's certainly ignorant! Love, Beth

It's been a week and a half and what? no more caring and sharing? no more yapping away endlessly about how retched you are? C'mon, get the lead out, nancy, and get to whining again. We need the laughs.

a point to note Mort- the secretive hater uses the plural.
This shows a great deal of inner sadness- the poor person can not even own the comment to themselves and has to suggest that they are expressing a common view with the support of others.
Can't leave a name, cant say "I need the laughs" Obviously zero self belief and no self worth.
What a degree of self hate for some poor individual to plunge to.
I pity them and remain proud to be associated with you.
The only thing I agree with is that the individual obviously needs more joy and laughter in their lives but I fear they are not going to get much.
Keep being Morton!
Richie

Another comment- I would love to still be looking after my Mum at 50- I have missed her every day since I was 16!
