One Last Rose

I was outside yesterday and noticed this VERY TALL, over my head in fact, and I am over 5 foot tall, rose bush branch sticking wayyyy up there away from the other branches. shooooooooooooo talk about a run on sentence. ;) I noticed something on it at the top and I thought that CAN'T be a rose because it has frosted here I know 3 times so far. And one night just 2-3 nights ago it got down to the 20's and stayed there for at least 8 hours. I walked out there and sure enough there WAS A ROSE! I am still in shock. It doesn't have any frost damage to the edges or anything. Just a mystery to me how it doesn't have. But I just had to share it with you. I noticed my friend Tammy's in full bloom the other day when I went by there but hers stay in bloom most of the year after spring. I keep telling myself to ask her can I cut down into her rose bush and get me a piece of it. I love how it blooms and blooms like that!!!!! LOVE IT! Hers blooms their hearts out and she doesn't even do anything to them to make them do that! WHAT A ROSE!!!!! :)
I also wanted to wish each and everyone of you a Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!
I hope you guys are having a wonderful day!
Oh and speaking of, we all can use a GOOD LAUGH every now and then, so I just HAD to share this little email someone just sent to me. ;)
Deer Camp
The guys were all at deer camp. They had to bunk two to a Room. No one wanted to room with Daryl because he snored so Badly.
They decided it wasn't fair to make one of them Stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns.
The first guy slept with Daryl and comes to breakfast the Next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all Bloodshot. They said, 'Man, what happened to you?' He said, 'Daryl snored so loudly, I just sat up and Watched him all night.'
The next night it was a different guy's turn. In the Morning, same thing--hair all standing up, eyes all Blood-shot. They said, 'Man, What happened to you? You Look awful!' He said, 'Man, that Daryl shakes the roof. I sat up and Watched him all night.'
The third night was Frank's turn. Frank was a big burly ex-football player; a man's man. The next morning he Came to breakfast bright eyed ND bushy tailed. 'Good Morning he said. They couldn't believe it! They Said, 'Man, what happened?' He said, 'Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked Daryl into bed and kissed him good night. He sat up and Watched me all night '
