Your dad just told me about the Oma Bike. I said, "You mean instead of a Schwinn it's called Oma? Is it made in Germany?" He thought so, didn't know. So I egotistically said, "How marvelous that I make such an impression on people that a company in another country would want to name a bike AFTER ME." He said, "Yes, I thought you would say that." Ha. Sorry, it's the ego thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gotta keep it in the family.

Ego on wheels
Hi, good to hear from you my darling...I'm happy for you. The gardening sounds like you are taking after your OMA, me. While I didn't do much every green plant or tree I planted grew into a monster....It is such good exercise but very frustrating to me. The one beautiful pink blossomed bush I planted near the garage and had high hopes for to look marvelous did well and then February came and destroyed it with frost. I was so discouraged I said this is not worth the work...I like my planter in the front since I can mix the fresh flowers from a store like Farm Fresh with some artificial greens and it is little work and looks pretty nice ALL YEAR ROUND.
