THE GPS 10 - The Glorified Potting Shed

Watseka, IL(Zone 5a)

Ok, as usual, the place is a mess inside and out...

.....this year started out ok, then went down hill in a hurry and now we are trying to get back into the swing of things .... well maybe...

Whar do I start!? CLEANUP.. CLEANUP ISLE 13, looks like we need a bulldozer! Heck, maybe several! HA!

My, my how things can go down hill in a hurry! Dont know if I wanna go in thar!

This journal might just be the epitomy of all things bad with all things beautiful...

Jeez from the mess outdoors... hang on kids, were going in!
