Martha Stewart is....APPALLED!!!

Martha is APPALLED
I mean -- REALLY APPALLED. America's most trusted and loved guide to stylish living not only managed to survive an insider trading stock scandal -- some say she stormed back on the scene -- better than ever before.

But this is worse.

Sharing the gardening spotlight with yours truly (warning -- Shameless Self-Promotion Plug Dead Ahead)? Well -- that's different! And it just might knock her down a peg or two.

Not that I wish any ill will to the First Lady of Class -- mind you. I mean -- doesn't everyone dream of controlling their own multi-million dollar business empire? I certainly do -- but I can't even control my own five cats -- let alone an occassional "high finance" garage sale.

Author Jerry Turcotte
My friends -- the self-proclaimed "MacGruber of Gardening" has somehow caught the fancy of a contributing writer for the website Yahoo. And -- for some reason -- he's named Sacramento Vegetable Gardening as one of the Top Ten Gardening Blogs in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE.

Actually -- it's just his opinion. But I like that universe part -- so I did a little "creative editing."

Actually, I'm not sure why author Jerry Turcotte picked my blog out of thousands floating around in cyberspace. My personal thought is he's been hitting that plastic jug of Canada's favorite breakfast drink a wee bit too hard. But I won't go there -- cause Jerry's a lawyer -- and Bill Bird made a pledge to be nice to lawyers whenever possible.

My thanks to Jerry for his recognition. And -- I didn't mean it Canada -- although that plastic jug is the brother-in-law's favorite breakfast drink. Come to think of it -- it's also his favorite lunch and dinner drink as well.

Actually -- I'm pleased. I'm honored. Never -- in a million years -- did I believe that anyone other than my mom would follow this blog. And that's quite a trick -- since mom passed from this earthly existence long ago.

I promise that things will not change. I will continue to irritate the wonderful wife that is Venus whenever and wherever possible. She is my source of inspiration. She is, simply, my Venus.

I would let this honor go to my head -- but when you have five cats -- somewhere a litterbox needs cleaning.
