CrabAppleLane Sunday - March 18, 2012 Issue


Some unsolicited, unwanted advice for the suitors lining up for Peyton Manning's services: You'd better get him. If you don't, you may think you can go back to the quarterback you're stuck with and tell him it was only business but I can tell you with some certainty that he aint buying it. He is quite rightly going to feel humiliated.

Here nor there but I think a another late player will be throwing their hat in the ring before Manning signs.

I offer one from the CrabAppleLane backyard on this beautiful, almost spring day. Those are Louisiana Irises. They seem to like the pond. I have dark violet, light violet, and dark red varieties. The reds wait until the purples are just about done before they start blooming. They like having the stage to themselves.

Quote of the Day

The zoo's two Bengal tigers, an African lion and a leopard dined like kings on Thursday. And there are enough leftovers to feed the cats for weeks to come.

Blog of the day is here.

Quote from said blog: "Back to ranting. The grass is growing like mad this year. I may be out there long before the end of the month cutting grass. WHAT!?"


Is it my imagination or are those some pretty tall iris? They look at least twice as tall as the kind I planted around my garden last year.

I had to hesitate a moment before clicking through on the QOTD. I half expected a fence failure along the lines of "Jurassic Park."

Here in Arizona we can go back to the quarterback we had, because he's awful. Fans around here blame the owners for not selling the place more than anything else, so they'll welcome Kevin Cobb back all the same. It'
s the heat that makes us all fatalists out here.
