Tomato dedication

Village IdiotVillage Idiot Posts: 6,951
I dedicate these tomatoes from my garden to my father in law, Charlie Carey, a WWII combat veteran who died yesterday (on Memorial Day). He was a fine gentleman and an avid gardner. He would have been proud of my tomatoes. RIP, sir.
Sorry for the O.T. post.


Dripping Springs, Texas.
Just west of Austintatious

    So sorry to hear that VI. May he RIP. I am glad you got some tomatoes already- wish they were dedicated to something else though. In our thoughts bud.
