Gardening update:

    The weather might be bitterly cold (down in the low 20’s tonight in Okie City) but my home-grown tomatoes are approaching the peak of ripeness. I had to pick them early because of the weather but have been tickled pink that they ripened so nice inside. Next year, I think I’m going to plant some late on purpose so I’ll get more tomatoes late in the season. — In fact that will be my contribution to the big Thanksgiving family meal… homemade salsa made from my own tomatoes and peppers.
