Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I came across this picture of an article about last Springs Maintenance Workshop & Spring Fest. Event. Sure was tough this season missing out on all the fun stuff… But I know things happen that are out of our control and we do what we must…

That being said, I sure am looking forward to seeing things get back to some sense of normal soon! We will continue to respect others space by social distancing and keeping things clean for our clients! And even though we weren’t able to hold Large Public events like our Maintenance Workshops & Waterfall Classes, we are here to personally help you as always!
I love #throwbackthursday!

I came across this photo as I was organizing files and it really made me think. We have missed all our yearly events this year because of Covid. I sure looking forward to next year and getting back together.

Pictures take you back! I guess that’s why we call it #throwbackthursday 😊

Have a great evening!

A Day In The Life Of Mike… Halloween 🎃 is Coming!

We just started watching Horror films for the Halloween 🎃 season. Guess where we always start… You guessed it – Mikey Myers…

“They tell me that most of us get more conservative as we get older. It makes sense, we get married, have kids, we earn more $$ and have more to conserve! We also set up routines that we follow throughout our daily lives – exercise, eating, checking email, etc.. So I got to wondering if everyone across all boundaries followed suit?”

Check this out! – A day in the life of Mike

Mike likes his morning brew! You wouldn’t believe how cranky he gets if he ain’t had his Java!!’

Getting ready in the morning has become a ritual…

The old “morning constitutional” – With all the daily chores ahead – this is a great time to do a little multitasking & check my email & texts!

I don’t care who you are, ya’ gotta stay in shape!

Believe me folks, the “middle age spread” is REAL! Gotta eat right and do my crunches!

There’s always something to do…

Guest who drew “bake sale” at the school fundraiser… Red Velvet Cake is the perfect choice!

Don’t forget to take a break now and again! All work and no play…

I need a little “Me time” every now and again – nothing better than kicking off my shoes 👠 and enjoying a good show and a cold drink!

You might even think the monotonous life we all leed has tamed & subdued Mike to the point that homocide is just off the menu… ?

Oh well… You know it’s hard for a leopard to change his spots 🎃

Happy Halloween y’all! 🎃

Comparative Shots

I was messing with some pictures of tree faces to make a little blog about some of my favorites, when my son walked up and saw these two… He says “it’s like a 30 year before and after of you”…  I died laughing 😝 

In a way I see what my son means 😂 There is a similarity…

Anyways… There’s today’s blog… It’s a Blog about… Nothing! Hmmmmm… Sounds familiar 😊

Throwback Thursday | #Throwbackthursday

Here’s an oldie for #throwbackthursday! How many of you remember the activity center at West Jackson Baptist Church? I know I do! I loved skating there 😊 This was a Halloween party they held out on the skating rink floor. I remember that cowboy suit I was wearing in this picture too! It was my favorite ❤️ Roy Rogers, eat your heart out. 

I LOVED my cowboy get-up! This was 1972 or so at West Jackson Baptist Activity Center. They turned the skating rink into a Halloween Party. I can’t remember that young lady’s name, but like all ladies, she loves a cowboy 🤠 😂

I have grown to LOVE Throwback Thursday 😊 Y’all have a great day!

Saturday’s “Virtual Travel Pic” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Nothing to do? Join me in posting a picture! Yes, there are rules… check them out below 👇🏻Would you like to play? 

Join the challenge of posting a picture of some landscape from a place where you’ve been, where the main requirement is that you NOT appear in it. Just a picture, no description. The goal is to flood profiles with landscape photos to give a twist on the situation we’re going through.
Copy the text to your status, post a photo and let’s travel virtually!!



I’ve been doing this on my Facebook page everyday. Your welcome to see – https://www.facebook.com/mark.carter.775

It’s not as good as the real thing, but… What else is there to do??  

Have a good weekend 😊

Happy St. Paddy’s Day! ☘️

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to ya’! The pub crawls and beer drinking are on hold right now… BUT, good news! You can still pinch the ones closest to you if their Not wearing green 😊 

My family has Irish ancestry. LOTS of folks from Tennessee do! How about you?

I think I will try to stick to the old Irish ☘️ tradition of drinking a Guinness or three today 🍺 Tradition is important! 

Then there’s the talking in a fake Irish accent – ALL Day! Also, very important Tradition!  

And, I always try to lay an old Irish saying or two on some lucky person! 😆
Sayings like – 

  • If you’re lucky enough to be Irish… You’re lucky enough!

  • May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.
  • May neighbours respect you, trouble neglect you, the angels protect you, and Heaven accept you.

  • And the most important Irish ☘️ saying today – Sláinte! 🍺 

This has been on our refrigerator for as long as I can remember… I LOVE old Irish sayings!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day too all! Have fun! But as my grandma used to say, ‘Not too much fun’ 😂 Sláinte! 🍺
