Mattress Redux


Now you know how Miss MoneyPenny loves it when somebody leaves a nice comment on her blog.  And not only does she love the comments, sometimes they even get re-posted up front if there is something useful to share.

Michael Green left a nice comment the other day on one of the mattress posts and I think he is a pretty smart guy because he agrees with me about the problem of an old mattress.  You really don't want one laying around the place bringing down property values in the neighborhood.  Remember - several years ago, the renters next door heaved their old mattress out the back door in the rain, and then proceeded to set fire to it.  Nothing says low-life like a two week old mattress smolder.  This is what Michael had to say:

 Getting rid of an old mattress is no fun at all if not a real problem. This is a good point to consider before purchasing a new one. Your insights are practical and economical, and it helps me have a good idea since I’m planning to purchase a new mattress. Thank you!

So, make sure when you buy your new mattress that they have free haul away of your old mattress...if you don't plan on handing it down to the kids.  I bought my new mattress at SleepCountry and they recycle gently used mattresses for charity.  I'm assuming that they go through a rigorous debugging of some sort and just what do they mean by "gently used"??

Heads up!!  I'm told that the May issue of Consumer Reports magazine is covering mattresses.  This would be a very good place to start and then just go lay on some mattresses.  It doesn't take long to narrow the field when your back is doing the talking.  Hint: I'm told that the Kirkland Signature mattress at Costco is a very good mattress but you gotta do the hauling.

Now, on to more fun things.  It is difficult to find a lot of gardening tasks that can be done by a recovering double carpal tunnel surgery war veteran, but I did.  Today was such a perfect day for gardening.  My sister called it a "soft spring day" and that covers it.  I even heard the frogs for the first time and they were croaking up a storm down by the creek.

The most important thing that I did today was jet-spray the wasp's nests down from last summer before they could move back in.  I took down about 20 of their hotels.  I didn't find any wasps but there were a couple of some kind of bees complaining around my head.

I also Sluggo'd all around the entire house, paying close attention where they like to hang out.  Doing this really keeps the population down and allows me to actually have a garden.  Costco is the best place to buy your Sluggo, unless you find some real screaming sale elsewhere.


This is my Jack Frost given to me last fall by Miss KnowItAll.  As you can see the snails love him, so I hit him hard with the Sluggo.  The picture doesn't do his bright blue flowers justice but they are there.


The flowering red currant is just about ready to burst forth and be stunning for about two weeks.  After that??  Not so much.  I used to have two of them but finally convinced my neighbor, Kim, a novice gardener, to take one.  This bush really needs to be any place other than a flower bed because he is all over the place and pretty ugly the rest of the year.  He would work well in a native plant type of garden because that is what he is.

Carpal Tunnel Update:


It was two weeks yesterday since my surgery and all stitches are now out.  You can see where the stitches were by the little holes and there were a total of four.  You can also see that the surgery was in a pretty important location on my hands.  Now all I need is some patience and that is starting to be in short supply.
