Sent Memories | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Are you on Facebook? If not, you might find this interesting 🤔 If you are, then you know of what I speak… Everyday I get a picture that I personally posted, usually years ago, it just pops up in my home feed, it’s labeled as a “Facebook Memory” and it tells you exactly how many years ago that you originally posted it. Then you get to look back through the comments and likes, and if you want you can share it as a Story or to your feed and friends. At first, I didn’t know what to think about it, but I have grown to enjoy them and I usually share them again. 

These pictures of our work that I have posted from years ago, just pop up as a “Facebook memory”… Actually pretty cool 😎 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Today’s memory was 3 years old. A couple of days ago it was a 7 year memory that I had forgotten about… 

What do YOU think 🤔 about the way social media like Facebook has changed our daily lives? How, if any, has it changed yours? 

“Memories, brought to you by Facebook”… 

Screenshot of what it looks like on your device. Do you look at these? Do you find it charming, or invasive? Just asking…

I have grown to think that it helps me share what I do. Our work at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio is so visual! It’s hard to describe what we build so that you can form an accurate picture in your minds eye… So that picture you see, of what your backyard could actually look like, is worth a thousand words… 

I’m writing this outside and it’s starting to rain  🌧 I hope you enjoyed it 😊

Have a Great Weekend!

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 😊

Horrible, But Nostalgic Memories…What? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Is there something that you can think of that the smell or taste of it would make you sick? I have to confess, I do! When I was a kid, health was a big deal in my family! Eating right, wearing comfortable shoes, getting the proper sleep, brushing your teeth & being “regular” in the bathroom were all stressed! If you weren’t up to snuff on any of these daily rituals, there was a cure waiting for ya’ with my Grandad! He would say, “I got just the thang to sweeten you up and make you feel good”! His remedy – Sal Hepatica!

In a way I guess this stuff made me stronger? At least it made me act stronger 😂 If you said you felt bad in front of my Grandad, he would make you take a dose of this stuff 🤢 So if he ever asked, “How ya’ feeling boy?” My response was always – “I’m feeling great, Grandad!”

Now I don’t know if any of you remember this stuff, but if you do, you will remember it well! It’s a phizzy, bubbly, salty Laxative that you drink… #1 you gotta Choke it down! It tastes HORRIBLE! #2 you better be near a toilet! Cause as soon as you drink it, “This is Happening” takes on a whole new meaning!!! 😵

I hated this stuff so bad, I always faked incredible health around grandad even if I felt like crap 😂 💩 He would strait up make you drink some Sal Hepatica! They finally stopped making it, which was a Great day in our family!

Tomorrow is my  26th wedding anniversary! This bottle was one of my presents from my wife! My “Sal Hepatica Stories” inspired my wife to buy me this old bottle for my collection 😊 You don’t know how much that makes me smile! She’s too cool! 😎

IF, any of you have a Sal Hepatica story of your own, please share it here on my blog or on my Facebook page. I’d love to hear it!

Thanks for reading to the end of this random story… Have a great day!
