Here is what I think your tree is that we were discussing.

Acer Nigrum (Black Maple) tree

0


It is not native to this area, but that doesn't mean it won't grow here. I found some sites that show the bark and it looks similar to me.

But --- it could also be a Acer Rumbrum (Red Maple)
Red Maple tree It has the red stem like the one you gave me.

Here is the images of Poison Sumac.

I was wrong - the map shows Poison Sumac to be in our area...good thing it never has found me.

WiKi How to Identify Poison Sumac -- lots of pictures

And here are the poison plants pictures - Ivy, Oak, Sumac -- and one I've never heard of. Avoid these stupid plants!!! 

grandma again --- 6 years ago -

My tree gets blooms like those in the picture of the Black Maple.

Thank you so much for the information. I am so thankful to know all these vines around here are not sumac.

Thank you again for being such a great friend and angel. It was so good to see you today! Come by some time in the fall and enjoy a glass of wine and the firepit with me. :) 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Do I have to wait that long? :-( hahahahaha

I'm going to take you up on meeting for lunch. SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!


May even drag Froggie and a few others in on it!!! 

grandma again --- 6 years ago -

no, you come any time! i was just sayin'.... :)

Lunch would be great. Just let me know. 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 6 years ago -

I'd be tempted to show up for a lunch...provided of course that Oma leaves her broom at home... 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Nope - the broom comes with me!!! How else would I get to a lunch spot?

Let's aim for next week - somewhere around Porter or on Northpark.

Orrrrrrrr - we could eat burgers at Whataburger - I love Whataburger. 

grandma again --- 6 years ago -

monday is the only day i can not do of next week so far. 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

And Tuesday is always out for me!! You know - the work thing. 

grandma again --- 6 years ago -

Let's let Monza pick where we should meet up. :) 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He would pick someplace with sawdust on the floor just to irritate me. You know how he is!!! :-)



Once we decide the where, let's decide the time in a PM --- don't want lurkers to show up. 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 6 years ago -

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He would pick someplace with sawdust on the floor just to irritate me. You know how he is!!! :-)


I'll just bring a bag of sawdust...HeHeHe 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

I figured!!!


Probably throw it at me as the food is being served. 

Froggie --- 6 years ago -

I wanna join you all!!!!

Purdy please!!

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

As soon as we pull it together...is there a day that won't work for you next week (or the week after)? GA's is Monday & mine is Tuesday. Monza hasn't said and haven't heard from others.

If it's just the 4 of us, that will work 2...as long as Monza doesn't throw that sawdust at me. 

Froggie --- 6 years ago -

I am having a little outpatient surgery on Monday the 12th, I'm sure I will be sidelined for a few days after that but if it works out, I'd love to join in!

I will bring a dust pan in case Monza gets his hiney out of line with the sawdust!!

= ] 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Good - someone needs to help me keep Monza in line.

I'm hoping for the end of this week...I have WW on Thurs @ noon, but I can go early to weigh in. Wed or Friday would be cool with nothing going on here. 

grandma again --- 6 years ago -

the week of the 12th is out for me. between GPA and myself, it is a week of doctor appointments. 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

Then we need to do it this coming week.

How'z 'bout Thursday at 1 pm?

Monza - you need to pick where or I will and y'all won't like it!!! I'll pick McDonalds just to rile everyone up. 

grandma again --- 6 years ago -

Thursday at 1pm is good with me. Monza, where are you? Name a place unless you want to defer the choice to TexasOma. 

Froggie --- 6 years ago -

Don't ya just love how I invited myself??? LOL Thursday at 1 is good for me too.

MONZA....pick someplace please!!!!

= ] 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 6 years ago -

I'm not good at picking a place for a gathering...maybe somewhere like an I-Hop

Oma...Mickey D's works for me...LOL 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

OK --- then maybe if we narrow it down to a type of food. We are getting plenty of choices in this area so we might can pick a place by narrowing.

I'm game for

Mexican (ie Pueblo Viejo, La Casita--they don't have margaritas, Alma Latina or Chuy's)

Italian (ie Italiano's -- Carrabba's is too expensive IMO)

Sushi (JoJo's on 59--they have other Chinese foods there too)

Cracker Barrel

Luby's

Culver's (they have great burgers)

Whataburger (I always love their burgers)

Smashburger (had my first a month ago - it was good) - it's in the new Kroger center

A Chinese fastfood but I don't know it's name right next to Smashburger

There is also a Carl's Jr & Panera Bread in that same center

Zachary's in the Randall's Center

Pei Wei in the Randall's Center


If any of you have other choices, please throw them out for consideration. Only thing I ask is that when we get the list narrowed down, please let's discussing final details in PMs. If anyone else is interested in join us, please speak up. 

FabFive --- 6 years ago -

I'd love to go but I'm never over there :( 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 6 years ago -

I know! :-( Wish you were. 

Froggie --- 6 years ago -

Me too!!!

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 6 years ago -

Y'all better decide, it's Monday already...LOL

As long as there is some American cuisine on the menu, I'm fine... 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 6 years ago -

Oh yeah, bring a hot, sexy, single lady for me...LOL


And of course, the key word here is "single"...


Okay, Okay...it's "Hot and Sexy", too... 

grandma again --- 6 years ago -

Italiano's has a marvelous, inexpensive lunch menu. monza, is pizza American cuisine?

all i have heard is negative comments about the new chinese place by smash burger and Paul's

I have never been to Culvers 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 6 years ago -

monza, is pizza American cuisine?

Yes, and pasta is fine. Been to Italianos...I just can't handle full on mex, sushi, Chinese, etc
