It was so nice to be out in the fresh air this morning. I trimmed all my lantana back. I don't like them to grow up past the windows and not too far out into the yard but didn't want to trim them while they were blooming so much. Susie loves to be my guard while I'm working. She keeps the neighborhood cats away.
Note to Jack: No we don't do the cleaning of rent property. I don't get the money, I don't clean. lol I've done enough of that in my day but I sold my rent property a few years ago and haven't picked up a paint brush since. John is above that menial work. lol He usually hires his daughter and her mother or someone else. The boots on the fence were mine although they were men's boots. I'll tell you the story and you knew I would, didn't you? Years ago Mel and I hunted on his grandmother's property west of San Antonio which is now in the city. Close to dark one day he shot at a deer. He thought he hit it but it ran. He would never leave game so we were out walking hunting for the wounded or dead deer. Instead of finding a deer I heard a rattlesnake. I yelled and jumped sky high. He shot the snake and it was getting dark so we had to quit looking. We planned to go back the next day but I was snake shy. I had to have a pair of boots. The only store open when we got to town only had men's boots so I had to settle for those. Never did like them and never did feel comfortable in them so they ended up being a flower pot on the fence. We never did find the deer so evidently he missed.
