Bee Balm blooms right after the 4th of July. Its flower head reminds me of fireworks.
Monarda something..I am getting old I cannot remember it’s second name. didyma that is it I had to look it up. Years ago those names just rolled of my tongue ..not so much anymore.
I had many interesting visitors at the museum this week.
Jimmy from Lincoln Nebraska requested his Grandpa and Dad stop by on their way to get some bait. Far Guy was working for me that day..but I was volunteering and sealing a rock wall in the Resort room. Both Grandpa and Dad were impressed that I remembered Jimmy’s name and where he was from. He is a one of a kind kid how could I not remember him. I use his story in every talk I give. Jimmy is doing great in school and so far he has marvelous teachers that challenge him. He was bummed out that Civil War Sunday was going to happen after he goes back to Nebraska.
Vickie from Ellendale North Dakota came by the museum because of what I have written about it on my blog. It is always fun to meet a blog reader!
My sister and her son have never visited the museum before. They said they had a great tour!
It was a busy week.
Far Guy is still struggling with his dry socket after he had two teeth pulled eleven days ago. He is into making his own concoctions now. Oil of Cloves and an Olive Oil mixture take some of the hurt away. He saw his Dentist and some kind of medication was put into the gaping holes in his mouth but the pain returned about six hours later. Another phone call to the Dentist yielded no results other than it should be on the down hill side by now…or very soon. Far Guy was angry..and says he is looking for a new Dentist.
The other night when I was at Bingo he cooked up a concoction in the double boiler. It was a mixture of Jewelweed stems, olive oil and he said a drop or two of clove oil just to make it smell good. He cooked it all up and then strained it into a jar..it is his latest poison ivy remedy..and no I do not have poison ivy at the moment..so he is quick to offer it for any other problem I might have..like charley horses or dry skin. He is waiting patiently for me to get poison ivy so he can get some real feedback:(
