Live Oaks Get Hair Cut

On the way home from Mom's on a Sunday afternoon, we notices some tree trimmer working on live oaks at a shopping center. Using small equipment and tall ladders, they were carefully trimming out the dead and removing moss. We stopped and asked them to take a look at ours.

A week later, they were cleaning out our trees. These guys worked so hard. One was a monkey that climbed way up where I thought no man would go. A really good job. We are so glad to have them done.

They also dug up the youpon trees that were really getting out of hand. Suckers kept coming up and we just couldn't keep up with the growth. For the time being, we'll let the bed rest to see how many youpon come up again and get rid of them.

Birthdays are Wonderful.

Birthday's are WonderfulI did have to cook my own birthday dinner, but I made it a simple affair. Mom came over and you see her on the porch visiting with Walt's new pet, C P (clay pig). I have some new pets too. BB (big bird) is the apple of my eye. I saw her sister about 3 years ago and have been looking for one for myself since then. We found her and CP the day before my birthday and adopted them on the spot. .

Such Imagination

This bird house was a surprise. Look closely. It was made from a toilet tank part.

Better Late than Never

I took these pictures when Mom and I went to Corpus to see Willie Bodden who was residing in Spohn Hospital for the week. The time laspe is due to figuring out how to get the pictures from my phone camera into the computer. First you have to have a data cable and some special software. It would not have been a problem if I had the picture service, but I didn't want to spring for the service when I didn't think I'd use it. Shame on cheap old me.
