I have some GREAT news for you all ..... LORI GETS BACK TODAY (or tomorrow depending on when you read this..)! Now you all don't have to continue reading my incompetent blabbering!!!!

But honestly I can thankfully say that I've actually learned quite a bit from this experience. Not only about how to move pictures from the camera onto the computer, but about gardening and wildlife. So I guess the only thing to say to say to all you readers & fans out there is: thank you. It's been a good run. Who knows; I might start my own blog sometime (probably not about gardening, more likely video games or rubik's cubes). So here is me, Jordon A. Field, signing off. Goodnight folks! "A part of you has grown in me, together forever we shall be, never apart, maybe in distance, but not in the heart."


  1. you were an amazing blogging sub. :)

  2. Thank you Jordon. Good job! M. Kitka
