Tilly, Part Two...

As you can see,
Tilly the Pet Tomato continues to astound her keeper.
I am beginning to feel a bit concerned
about Tilly.
Her energy, her determination,
and her aggressiveness
is becoming nothing less than an exercise in
Day by day I am posing the question,
"Just who is in charge here?"
Some of you may recall
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.
I am wondering if I should
lock the bedroom door
at night?
One son has suggested
that Tilly is genetically modified.
I do know that she is a Hot House Tomato On the Vine
I passed up the corn on the cob,
the cukes and zukes, the broccoli,
the lettuces and avocados today
at the grocery store.
If you do not hear from me in the next week,
it will be too late for you to dial 911.
I offer my sincerest thanks in advance
for any rescue moves you may endeavor
to make on my behalf.
May I leave you with
a cautionary blessing;
Beware what you bring into your home.
best, e.

I have to say Tilly does look a little worrying. I have never ever seen such a beast.

Oh my! I would be horribly concerned for you, if the laughing hadn't rendered me too breathless to be anything. You see, even across the miles and through the screen Tilly has the power to incapacitate. Scary! It was lovely to have know you Ellen, if only for five minutes ;D
