Been working grading and packing flowers for export since 4am this morning. ( Its now 8.30pm) Still got another 5-6hrs to do tonight........But I decided to get takeout food and head over to my sisters and have dinner with her and her husband as a break.

Just as I was leaving after eating, she said " There is a present for you beside the front door"........... so I walk down the stairs and see a plastic shopping bag which contained 5X500gm packs of my favorite coffee. I thanked her and picked it up and she says " And the box is for you as well." Beside where the bag was sitting is a small cardboard box so I pick it up and open it.

This is what was inside................. https://www.amazon.com/Civil-War-Battlefields-Walking-History/dp/0847859126

She told me she couldnt wait till christmas to give it to me.

I am really looking forward to reading this. Saw a copy a while ago and had a quick look through it and decided to get get a copy after flowering season is over cos I dont get much time to relax and read anything at this time of year...........but she beat me to it.

What I should do is light a fire in the fireplace, break out the bottle of Devils Cut and sit back to spend a couple of hours reading......but I will save that pleasure for when I have more time.

My big sis rocks!!
Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Looks like an interesting book. I'm anticipating your range report.

    You deserve a good relaxing time after all the work you are doing to get your orchids ready to ship, enjoy your new book.

    I was thinking you got a new "big bucks" t-shirt.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    That should be an interesting read! Should keep you busy for a while when things calm down on the orchid packing and shipping.

    Don't know if you went to the Chickamauga Battlefield Park when you were here, but they have a museum stuffed full of firearms. I think you'd probably enjoy going through and looking at them.
