Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



The Vineyard of Death at Wal-Mart

This is a group of grape vines for sale at Wal-Mart. They never lowered the price, and sold very few. I bought one a few months ago and it is thriving now. Its brothers are not. I asked the clerk what they were going to do with them. She said she would ask about getting the price chopped in half, but they would go no lower than that. Other wise they will just throw them all away.

There are a few almost done grapes. The typical yield for a mature grape vine is about 40 clusters per vine, at about a quarter pound per cluster.

There were a few over-done grapes.

There are a few grape leaves (essentially all of them) that have been transformed into big bugs. So their investment in a dozen plus plants has produced at least two bugs.

(I believe these are eXactly the same kind of worm that attack my tomato plants, but notice that the grape chemicals dye the worms with a light purple where there would normally be green. I noticed the same thing last year when one of my grape vines was attacked by these monsters)

I am also in the process of linking my poetry blog entries together. This project is only partially finished. A "Poetry LINK" at the bottom of the blog entry points to the next older piece of poetry.
