When he asked it, I answered then I laughed. The question proved that my husband, a New England-bred Yankee with many years of Los Angeles influence, was morphing into a true Southerner.

True story: I sent one of my more recent books to a radio talk-show host who, in turn, gave it to one of her "readers," asking him to extract appropriate questions.

Q: I homeschool my three children, ages are 8, 6 and 5. The older two have a very poor attitude about doing school, especially math, and the younger one is starting to pick up on it. Their poor attitudes make the lessons take longer and they complain and cry about finishing their assignments.

As the years of Mama's life grew long into the shadows of age, she managed to squeeze every bit of good out of growing old. She used it to get both what she wanted and to shun that which she did not want.

A word from UGA Extension

I have reports from several homeowners about their turfgrass fading and dying out. Also, some are reporting small mounds in the yard. These signs could very well be mole crickets.

Rincon Garden Club blooms at Telfair

The Rincon Garden Club had a display at the Springfield Library and the Telfair Museum asked the club, along with other garden clubs to fix an arrangement to celebrate "Telfair in Bloom" to be display from April 14-17. Rincon's arrangement was to compliment Raphel Lewisohn's oil painting "Pasturage in the Dunes." The Rincon Garden Club is beautifying the Rincon library with plants, benches and statuary.

Q: My daughter, who just turned 3, has a surge of energy after dinner and can take hours to fall asleep. I try putting her down around 8 p.m., but there are nights when she doesn't fall asleep before 10. Sometimes she tells me she's tired but can't fall asleep. At other times, she will throw a tantrum before bed. When she stops she'll say, "I'm done crying, now I can sleep."

The despair in their eyes haunts me still. The dullness of emotion, the deadness of spirit shall remain forever embedded in my memory.

There isn't a day that passes that I don't remember Mama. Many of the times that she crosses my mind, I am doing something that she taught me how to do.

A word from UGA Extension

Many folks have either called or dropped off samples of the grassy weed Annual Bluegrass this week. Although many people are just now noticing this plant because its white seed head has emerged, this plant has been in your yard since late October. The best time to control this weed is during the fall as well.

It happened, I suppose, when I was in the fourth grade. That is my first strong recollection of the unfairness of life.

Q: Whenever my 4-year-old son tries something new, he becomes very frustrated if he has any difficulty at all. This happens when practicing numbers, letters, or anything else I try to teach him. I tell him that he's doing fine and will do better with practice, but it's obviously not sinking in. In general, he's a perfectionist in the sense that everything must be "just so." It worries me because we have depression, anxiety, and OCD on both sides of the family.

A word from UGA Extension

We have a large amount of Bradford pears in the county, and many are concentrated to subdivisions. They create shade and look great in the spring with their white flowers. This year they may have more issues with a certain disease than in the past. This disease is Fire Blight and can also spread to fruiting pears, apples and crabapple.

Over the course of many years, I have spent a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms, hoping for good news and, at the same time, dreading the bad. I can remember clearly moments of time suspended by a pounding fear resounding in my ears like a thunderous cannon firing relentlessly.
