No this is not the moon but I did see the moon tonight and it is holding water. I know it is because Holly told me how to tell so years ago. Holly was my elderly neighbor in San Antonio. She was elderly when I wasn't. Gosh how time changes things. Wonder if people are talking about my ways yet? Holly married our neighbor, she had been married to his brother many years before that. She had two marriages in between and was widowed and started writing to our neighbor. She was quite a character and I still think of her often. She taught me how to tell if pecans were good or bad while still in the shell. You hold some pecans in each hand with the palms up raising your hands up and down. You can tell which ones are heavy with meat inside. It works more or less. After Shorty our neighbor died she really wanted to find another husband but she always said she wanted a man who could pick up his end of the board. I guess she never found him because she never remarried. She liked my husband Mel a lot because he could fix things for her and only charge her for parts. However she didn't like his junk and especially his water drilling rig which she called an eyesore. She would complain to me hoping I would get him to dispose of it without her making him angry. Mel lost a lot of his hair at an early age so she would tell me I had better watch out because she liked bald headed men. She hated for the squirrels to eat her pecans so she trapped them and hauled them to the cemetary where she is now buried. I have said this before here I think the ancestors of those squirrels are scampering over her grave. One day she came over and I was folding clothes. She said I guess I am going to have to buy you some wash cloths. That remark kind of puzzled me until she said your's are all worn out. I like washcloths when they get thin and old not the new fluffy thick ones. When she went back to the piney woods where she was from to visit I would take care of her several dogs. She would leave me a long list of how to take care of and feed each one. Among several others she had Simon and Sadie her Eskimo Spitz which she raised puppies to sell from. When she ran her ad she would put my telephone number as she was very hard of hearing. Sometime she would pay me a little for my trouble but a lot of time she would say when I'm gone my estate will pay you. Before she died she became senile so her kids moved her back to the piney woods but I doubt she realized it. When she died they brought her back where the squirrels roam and her estate didn't pay me. Thats okay she was a delightful neighbor and taught me a lot. I think of her everytime the moon is holding water.
