This is the roots that have been my new exercise, a heaping wheelbarrow full!
All that came from a spot 3' square.
The rest of the rear of the back yard is just like this. It was covered by bushes and trees when we bought. There is a lot of exercise pulling these roots.
Okay the surprise. Sherry and Jack Jr went off to Walmart yesterday while I fixed chicken, rice veggies and gravy for supper. I thought they got lost. But when they left Jack's hair was grey. When they returned this is what I saw:
He said he asked for strawberry blonde color, looks pretty red. But he is having a lot of fun with it. hahahaha.
This was such a peaceful quiet place then all of a sudden Deltona made national news when a squirrel about two blocks from here attacked a senior. OUCH
Then yesterday we were bothered by helicopters buzzing. Mark was on his way here from Port Richey and some of the roads were blocked. A person had killed a K-9 dog in a gun fight with Deputy Sheriffs. They had him surrounded in a few acres of woods a mile and a half from here. Jack Jr said he heard from the helicopter "We have eyes on you, come out with your hands up!" He did not respond.
The copters went all night. keeping everyone awake but me, since I cannot hear with my devices off.
Today he was wounded and captured ending the two day stand off.
So I have been singing When the Squirrel went berserk in the First Self-righteous Church in Pascagoula.
I smile thinking of Pascagoula, MS. WE worked a little there after Katrina devastated the place. We met the nicest couple while we worked there. Some folks you never forget.
Anyway, all is well. I am extremely THANKFUL. Life is good and goes on. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
