Tomato dedication

Village IdiotVillage Idiot Posts: 6,953
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.

    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.
