            Tim and I gave a talk to Southport’s Woodbine Garden Club this morning. The hall contains no projector for PowerPoint slides, so Tim spent a couple hours Sunday evening converting them to DVD format for showing on TV. While the disc worked fine at home, we didn’t think to bring the converter box for our antediluvian, non-digital unit with us to the Jaycees Building. Bugger. Back to square one.

Then circumstances turned in our favor. The meeting date had changed a few times, so turnout was light. “Wonderful!” I told president Heather. “We’ll pull the chairs into a circle.” “Oh,” Miss Heather replied. “Like a garden intervention!”

Well, something like that.

Anyway, we had a blast. I promised I’d post the pictures they didn’t get to see on my blog (which we mentioned about 800 times) upon arriving back home. So Woodbine ladies, here's the PowerPoint presentation you've been waiting for. You can click on the pictures to make them bigger. And thank you all for a really good time.

Everybody else, thanks for dropping by. Hope you enjoy the show.
