Wild grapes

My uncle has a secret "possum grape" vine that he found and made jelly from. I've been begging Dad to ask him to get a cutting. Well....

I found a grapevine in the back yard last year after we did some clearing and it appears to be Vitis baileyana, or what we refer to as "possum grapes."

I'll post pictures and let everyone weigh in, but all my research points to it being what I think it is. I'm excited!

How is everyone?

I've been busy mixing nail polish, working on my book, working in my flower beds and going to my 9-5.

Lonnie's mom is now on hospice care. I don't have much to say about it because it isn't my story to tell.

I would like to ask everyone to find an organization that provides free or low cost mammograms and screening for early detection and donate or ask how you can help. I have many reasons for not supporting Komen, but won't get into that here. Early detection is the best way to fight breast cancer.

Encourage the women in your life to get their yearly checkup, keep up with their monthly self exams and get an early mammogram if they are at risk. If they can't afford it help them find a way. Everyone knows someone who has had breast cancer.
