Looks nice and springy at your ponds now.
I like watching Bear going around checking out and giving a good sniff to all your animal decor around the pond edge. Little Rio looks like she needs a cup of coffee :happy:
Little Rio also waddles when she walks too... Hubby stuffs her with too much food...

Looking very Springy there! I am amazed every Spring to see how well everything has done while under snow and ice at minus 40 degrees, and not that long ago. Very nice Colleen!

Colleen you are a born teacher/speaker! You should be teaching classes somewhere in public so everyone can learn about making the many level ponds like yours and all the interesting facts you provide. I love all the additions you have made throughout the years. All your ornaments and fun things, plants, gorgeous fish and pups I just enjoy so much. You make 20 mins of speaking so enjoyable and it goes by so fast! Makes me wish I was younger so i could start digging ponds just like yours! Thanks so much for sharing all that you do :happy:

how is your mom doing
She is doing well and she just got approved for a new wheelchair that will allow her to be mobile again. The chair she is currently in is for people who can't move at all and is too high off the ground. The new wheelchair will be small and low to the ground so she can "petal her feet" and her arms will be able to reach the wheel to propell that way as well. Occupational Therapist from hospital had to come and approved this new chair.... The supervisor also had to come because nobody ever heard of somebody recovering from "Stage 7 Dementia" before. The supervisor was very sweet and just loved my mom. Then she told me that she would have to "write a little lie" to get new wheelchair approved by her supervisor at hospital cause nobody at hospital would believe her....
Then my mother's doctor who wrote the note to approve my mother for "medical marijuana" (CBD) wrote that it was for "arthritis" as "big pharmaceutical" would "sue" doctor if he wrote it was to treat Dementia!!!!

Hubby is doing well and no sign of cancer anymore. Hubby also takes CBD as does the old Bear as he was getting stuff and sore in his old age and now can run like a puppy and chase after baby Rio. We're all on CBD now after seeing how it saved my mom... I am very thankful that she is doing so much better. I can carry on a conversation with her and she remembers lots now. She has a lady friend who she can talk to in Ukrainian and it is good to hear her speak so well again. But I feel so bad for others at home that should be on CBD and they are getting sicker and weaker every day while my mother makes steady improvements...

You can get some really good stuff down there in the States. 13 dollars sounds very cheap. Check how many "MG's of CBD is in bottle. I give my mother the North Star CBD pills. Very expensive at 180 dollars per bottle for 30 caps but North Star is a rare plant and it tastes like "sweet grass" and you actually can feel a "spark" go off in your head after taking it for the first time. I am thinking of finding cheaper stuff now that she is so much better. I might be able to get same stuff at cheaper price now that I have licence. CBD us getting cheaper now that more is available. CFTO in the USA has some really good stuff too. I myself take the cheap stuff and it helps with aches and pains from old age quite well when taken two or three times per day.

I also hear CBD is sold in truck stops everywhere at a cheap price and anybody can buy it off the self. No restriction and no need to worry as you cannot overdose on CBD. Some people who are really sick with cancer or pain can drink whole bottle in one day..
