Looking for Shade at the Back Fence - August 2019

Welcome friends old and new to the Back Fence.  The Back Fence is where neighbors gather to catch up on life and to share a treat or meal (bring food, hint hint) Woman Very Happy

There is a canopy to sit under, zero gravity lounge chairs and an easy access picnic table.  

 

We have hot coffee and tea for the morning and iced tea and lemonade for when it starts heating up.

Continuing the discussion from last month, we've basically reached a consensus that utility companies are crooks Woman Very Happy  If it isn't the gas company penalizing you for having primarily electric appliances, it's the water board and local communities stiffing you on water rates.  

 

What are you gonna do?  

 

Sending good thoughts to @hellie jo  who shared with me that her son could use our prayers

 

" I haven"t been around the fence for a while.My oldest son has a tumor in his colon and we are waiting for the results of the biopsy.If it"s cancer or not,he will have to have surgery. He is in pain and getting weaker.He has lost weight.I can"t stand the waiting,but of course have no choice.I will try to post now and then.I enjoy all your postings.Right now I am a hot mess.Take care and am glad your bird family is doing fine."

@hellie   Can you share a nickname, initials or first name of your son?  I'll pray for him either way and I'm sure all of heaven will know who I am praying for when I say hellie's son.  Please let us know the outcome of this and just take it one day at a time.  I know it's easier said than done Heart

@Bird mama 

 

Could  you send your son’s initials?

I’m holding you both in the light, and hope the best answer comes soon with excellent healing to follow.

@1Snickers  and @Drythe 

 

It is Hellie's son John that could use the prayers.
