5/22/10 Margi’s email

Hello to every SRC’er,

alwayslearning@hotmail.com also spells margi pratt, in case you are wondering.

i update our mailing list and am currently working on getting an accurate address block together.  Wayne has been bc’ing his, so for the sake of speed, right now i am using an old one from Holly that may have some unworkable email addresses in it.  i find that i will have to enter every name and data separately.  that takes some time and i need to send some news out NOW:

1.  Wayne has not been able to receive and send emails.  after working on the problem, Wayne says he will not have any internet connection until the end of May.  if you have any urgent matter to tell him, please call him at home 253-847-4614.  he is aware that he might be getting more than the usual number of calls. 

2.  Tom Neill donated his garden tools to the SRC.  they are garden tools and consist of rakes, potato fork, edger (needs some work) and the like.  they are currently are Wayne’s house.  if you are in need of working over your garden (in this wet weather), you may use these tools.  just give Wayne a call.

3.  tomorrow, Sunday, the weatherman promised us a little sunnier day, just in time to visit one or all of the lovely, exceptional woodland gardens in our area:
